Fondation Louis Vuitton - The Return

A year after having first visited the Fondation Louis Vuitton for what was for me, the exhibition of a lifetime - The Schukin Collection: Icons Of Modern Art, Paris (here), I returned to see another exhibition, and a deeper look at this incredible Frank Gehry designed building.

I must say, interesting as Daniel Buren's colour installation on the sails of the building were last year (here), I think I much prefererred the building without it, in its purer state.

The atrium with a Gehry mobile.

A school of sculptural fish swimming in the restaurant.

Gehry-designed seating.

The lower floors of the ark-like building moored in a pool of water.

The impressive architectural engineering seen from the roof terraces.

I spied Monsieur Eiffel's iconic tower in the distance, and couldn't help but wonder what he would have made of Gehry's designs.
