Fondation Louis Vuitton

Plans for the Fondation Louis Vuitton were drawn up by Frank Gehry in 2000.   It then took a long period of gestation, including difficult discussions with structural engineers, before opening in the Bois de Boulogne in October 2014.   It’s an incredibly grandly theatrical building, generously proportioned, with an excess of mechanical swooping over and towards the viewer and a series of roof terraces from which one can view the surrounding countryside:-
