Louis Vuitton Foundation For Creation

Paris’s newest museum, the Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation, opens its doors today and, no, it’s not showcasing bags and shoes. The centre features permanent art collections, a state of the art musical auditorium and space for temporary exhibits. And the building itself is pretty fantastic, too. Designed by Canadian starchitect Frank Gehry, the remarkable structure is made from reinforced concrete and thousands of glass panels, which take the shape of 12 curved, white sails. As stunning as it is unique, the centre is a welcome addition to the city’s world-class architectural roster.
