Frank Gehry might be known as a difficult architect, to put it lightly, but the Fondation Louis Vuitton shows why he is also a renowned one. As though about to take off into the sky, it resembles a futuristic ship with its series of glass sails. Dynamic and modern, the building is a work of art that is worthy of the fashion brand's name.

Located in Paris, France, the Fondation Louis Vuitton is built out of glass for many reasons. Gehry himself sets out a few, "Glass is not functional for any art, but to take advantage of that circumstance and turn it into a living space: that can change the building, it’ll take time to understand the building, and understand the possibilities of it."
