Paris Newest Art Museum is like None You Have Ever Seen
From an initial sketch drawn on a blank page in a notebook to the transparent cloud sitting at the edge of the Jardin d’Acclimatation in the Bois de Boulogne, Frank Gehry constantly sought to “design, in Paris, a magnificent vessel symbolizing the cultural calling of France.”
“To reflect our constantly changing world, we wanted to create a building that would evolve according to the time and the light in order to give the impression of something ephemeral and continually changing,” states Frank Gehry.
A creator of dreams, he has designed a unique, emblematic and bold building.
Respectful of a history rooted in French culture of the 19th century, Gehry dares to use technological achievements of the 21st century, opening the way for pioneering innovation.
“IT IS A VERY UNUSUAL BUILDING. I HAVE NEVER DESIGNED ANYTHING LIKE IT.”
