Fondation Louis Vuitton by Frank Gehry

Designed by the American architect Franky Gehry, the much anticipated Louis Vuitton museum located in France is finally completed.

From the invention of glass curved to the nearest millimetre for the 3,600 panels that form the Fondation’s twelve sails to the 19,000 panels of Ductal (fibre-reinforced concrete), each one unique, that give the iceberg its immaculate whiteness, and not forgetting a totally new design process, each stage of construction pushed back the boundaries of conventional architecture to create a unique building that is the realization of a dream.

The museum will publicly open on the 27th of October.
