An exceptional building, the Fondation Louis Vuitton is the new landmark of the capital. Designed by Franck Gerby, internationally renowned architect, the Fondation is a window onto contemporary art.

Like a vision, the Fondation Louis Vuitton soars, in the heart of the Bois de Boulogne, covered with twelve huge glass sails. Its design creates a continuous wonder and reinvents itself with successive collaborations

This summer, the building is adorned with subtly coloured lights inspired by Daniel Buren. A play of light and transparencies sublimates the original architecture.

« The Observatory of light » is deployed on all the windows, the most iconic element of the building.

The twelve "sails", formed of 3,600 pieces of glass, are covered by a staggering array of coloured filters that are in turn punctuated, at equal distances from one another, by alternating white and blank stripes perpendicular to the ground. The thirteen selected colours is making coloured forms appear and disappear, ever-changing with the time of day and the season.

Through a play of colours, projections, reflections, transparencies and contrasts, both inside and outside, Daniel Buren is showing this building in a new light.
