Episode 61: Frank Gehry in Paris

 

Ron Brown recently visited Frank Gehry’s Fondation Louis Vuitton building, which opened in Paris in October 2014. It is adjacent to the Jardin d’Acclimatation in the Bois de Boulogne. In 2006, the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy (LVMH) group created the Foundation Louis Vuitton to sponsor the design and build.

The 2 storey structure has 11 galleries and a 350 seat auditorium as well as multi level roof terraces for events and art installations.
