The art centre,  not the handbags, sorry ladies! The American architect Frank Gehry was commissioned to design the Fondation Louis Vuitton. He created an art space on the edge of the Jardin d’Acclimatation in the Bois de Boulogne, a 856 hectare park in the west of Paris. It was opened in October 2014. The streamline shape is a masterpiece of glass and steel. The beautiful reflections on the glass panels and the geometrically framed vistas of the city is mesmerizing.  I have never seen anything like it and do not have the vocabulary to describe it, the photos have to speak for themselves:
