All Aboard The Gehry Ship!

To reflect a constantly changing world, we wanted to design a building that evolves depending on the time of day and the light, in order to create an impression of intangibility and continual transformation.

Hello Again! Last weekend I visited the exceptionally constructed Foundation Louis Vuitton on the edge of the Bois de Boulogne park in Paris where this hyper-ship exterior of modern exclusivity was magnificent! Can’t say I like the changes of color stain added to the glass sails and which is probably why I’ve edited my favorite photos into B&W. Oh Captain, I do hope that those additions are only temporary.

Inside there are eleven galleries where you maze from one room to the next and then navigate through a zig-zag of 4 levels.  It was quite fun playing Skipper trying to maneuver through the stark yet beautiful minimalistic interior. How refreshing from the overly abundant artworks, paintings and sculptures housed at most other museums.

 Aye! Aye! Let us steer a look…

Flora Day at Monet’

 

IMG_5053

Claude Monet lived in his home at Giverny for forty-three years. Within that time, he had meticulous ideas for his landscapers who gardened beautiful flowers outside the home and around a pond. You can immerse yourself in the world of the painter, famous for his landscape canvases and numerous views of his garden, such as the “Water Lilies,” the “Japanese Bridge” and “The Irises.”

Our timing was unpropitious as we arrived too early in the season to witness the water lilies blooming on the water. Nonetheless, the gardens were resplendent and the pond more lustrous than I imagined. One can easily spend a few hours sitting on one of the benches and staring off amongst the many species of flora. For those nature-enthused photographers keen on macro, landscapers seeking inspiration, art students dabbling with impressionism or an admirer of nature or history, this place is definatley worth the visit!
