Designed by the architect Frank Gehry, the Louis Vuitton Foundation is an art museum and cultural centre funded by the LVMH group. Adjacent to the Jardin d’Acclimatation in the Bois de Boulogne, the creation of the building marks a new phase in the philanthropic effort of the LVMH group in supporting art, culture and heritage they have been providing for nearly 25 years.
The Louis Vuitton Foundation is currently covered with an array of multi-coloured filters, work of French artist Daniel Buren. Named “Observatory of Light”, this impressive installation presents over 3000 pieces of glass, arranged in a chequeboard-like formation, making up the building’s 12 sails. Buren is known for his use of contrasting coloured stripes and often creates site-specific installations inside iconic architectural spaces. Scroll down to get a glimpse of the space.
