“It is a vessel, a fish, a sailing boat, a cloud,” Frédéric Migayrou, architecture curator at the Pompidou Centre, told “The Guardian” when describing architect Frank Gehry’s design of the Fondation Louis Vuitton Museum.
It appears to be a mass of curling and shifting planes, of glass panels, intricate steel and timber struts. It looks as if it’s opening up — or then again, maybe it‘s closing down. This privately funded museum, opened in 2006, is in Paris’s famed Bois de Boulogne. In a city overflowing with museums, its startling profile is dazzling, unique and memorable.
