Last November I visited the just opened Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris, designed by the famous architect Frank Gehry. This $143 million museum in the French capital is adjacent to the Jardin
d'Acclimatation in the Bois de Boulogne of the 16th arrondissement.
The queue was humongous but my friend who works in a well known international gallery worked his charm with security and they let us jump ahead of a very unimpressed crowd that had been waiting
hours to get in. I felt embarrassed but anyhow, being in the business has to have it perks plus I only had an hour to go round before rushing to get the Eurostar back to London.
Outside and inside the building is just spectacular. The glass armour and the absence of straight lines or regular surfaces makes you feel like you’ve been swallowed by a giant whale. The
contours twirl and twist around themselves as mechanical serpentines. It is just beautiful.
