    I saw the other Gehry in Paris. Its a regular Gehry, bad but less exciting.

    From Jan. 2010:

    New in Paris in 2010: The Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation, Designed by Frank Gehry



    Back in 2006, LVMH chairman Bernard Arnault announced the $127 million Louis Vuitton Foundation, designed by architect Frank Gehry as a floating cloud of glass above a reflecting pool. (See artistic rendering pictured at right.) Now under construction in Le Jardin d'Acclimatation, a beloved children's park in the Bois du Boulogne in Paris, the museum will open this year. Upon seeing the setting, Gehry says he felt like he had stepped back in time to the world of Proust, leaving 21st century Paris behind. He thus created a building with an ephemeral quality, with a sort of movement around it. The goal of the foundation itself is to illustrate the creative process-- from fashion to contemporary art. The foundation's permanent collection will be comprised of Arnault's own and LVMH's art collections.
