FRANK GHERY HACE HISTORIA FRANCIA
PARIS — In a cultural twofer that makes it Frank Gehry week here, the Louis Vuitton Foundation,
a private cultural center and contemporary-art museum designed by Mr. Gehry, had its official
inaugural ceremony on Monday, attended by the French president, François Hollande. At the same
time, the Pompidou Center across town is giving Mr. Gehry, based in Los Angeles, a major career
The Pompidou exhibition, “Frank Gehry,” establishes a narrative arc for a career that effectively
started with small-scale, experimental wood-frame studios and houses in Southern California and
culminates in the Vuitton Foundation in the Bois de Boulogne, which some critics have called one
of the most technologically sophisticated, artistically motivated buildings of his oeuvre.
A 126,000-square-foot, $135 million structure that formally opens to the public next Monday, it
promises to add a major contemporary monument to Paris’s long list of historic architecture.
At the end of the ceremony, President Hollande described the building as a “cathedral of light”
that was “a miracle of intelligence, creativity and technology.”
