Paris enjoys a cultural revival: The Louis Vuiton Foundation

Paris is enjoying quite a cultural revival at the moment. A brand new attraction is about to open to the public for the first time at the end of October. The Louis Vuitton Foundation building situatedin the Bois de Boulogne has been designed by architect Frank Gehry and is in a style which is spectacularly abstract and has led to it being described as either a ship or a whale. The building is said to have been inspired by the Grand Palais and by the Palmarium of 1893.
