ARCHITECTURE AND LANDSCAPE SPEAKING TO EACH OTHER.

I went to Paris for the weekend to visit friends and family and took the opportunity to go and visit the new (ish) Frank Gehry iconic building: The Louis Vuitton Fondation http://www.fondationlouisvuitton.fr/en.html  I have been meaning to go since it opened in 2014 and wasn't going back on the train before paying it a visit. I saw it at its best on a very beautiful autumn day: under clear skies and wrapped in the golden canopies of the Bois de Boulogne. The light was surreal and the relationship between Gehry's imposing but elegant monument and the surrounding woods was in perfect harmony. Gehry's reflecting and framing the woods and the woods hugging Gehry's. They were definitely talking to each other as if to say: "Je t'aime, moi non plus".
