The building of the Louis Vuitton Foundation is an art museum and cultural center sponsored by the group LVMH and its subsidiaries but run as a legally separate, nonprofit entity as part of its promotion of art and culture.




Description :

  • In 2001, Bernard Arnault , the Chairman of LVMH, met Frank Gehry, and told him of plans for a new building for the Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation on the edge of the Bois de Boulogne.

  • The building project was first presented in 2006, with costs estimated at around $100 million and plans to open in late 2009 or early 2010.

  • Suzanne Page , then director of the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, was named the foundation's artistic director in charge of developing the museum's program.
