Don’t miss the stunning Louis Vuitton Fondation in Paris, an extraordinary new museum build by famous architect Franck Gehry. I went when it had just opened. It was magic. You enter a enchanted world of space and light, gigantic but intimate, where all your senses are awakened and inspired.
Not only the art collections are remarkable, but the building itself is maybe the most remarkable of all, with many different levels, angles, materials, views, and terraces, even the acoustic is splendid. What could have been totally hectic is harmonious and peaceful. The creativity and the technical achievement of Franck Gehry is quite unique. He put Bilbao on the map with the Guggenheim Museum and now he added another jewel to Paris. It was his dream to build something significant in Paris: …“to design, in Paris a magnificent vessel symbolizing the cultural calling of France” Franck Gehry. This is exactly what he did!
You absolutely need to make reservation online in advance to get in, otherwise you will wait for hours. Parisians love arts, indeed! Even if you have to wait, it is worth it!
Et voila! It is worth the detour!
