Fondation Louis Vuitton

Bois de Boulogne - 8 avenue du Mahatma Gandhi - 75116 Paris

Bois de Boulogne - 16e Arrondissement


The Fondation Louis Vuitton, situated in the Bois de Boulogne, a stone's throw from the Jardin d’Acclimatation, opened its doors on 27 October 2014. The Foundation's exceptional contemporary art collections (permanent and temporary) are exhibited in an architectural gem designed by the American Frank Gehry. This visionary architect has revolutionized the use of glass and created previously unimagined shapes to produce a unique, innovative, light and airy building. In addition to the artistic and architectural richness of the Fondation Louis Vuitton, the visitor is also afforded wonderful panoramic views from the various terraces of the building.
