Take a peek at the Foundation Louis Vuitton in Paris!!

Juxtaposed against the Jardin d’Acclimatation in Paris, the Foundation Louis Vuitton houses various gallery exhibition spaces, a restaurant, a bookstore,and an auditorium.  The architectural construction exhibits icebergs of white blocks in various panels in collaboration with twelve grand sails made of glass.  The incorporation of the glass material enables the Foundation Louis Vuitton a sensation of movement and reflection in relation to the natural setting of foliage  - gardens, woods, and water.  Similar to Impressionism, the reflection evolves with the changing light.  Individuals may also climb the stairways under the glass to visit the roof-top exhibitions and gardens.
