It was a weekend to explore the places I meant to go for ages. The weather was cooperative enough to add the surreal dimension of this building #fondationlouisvuitton, completed in 2014 - designed by the architect #frankgehry. This cultural institute was commissioned by LVMH group CEO Bernard Arnault.
The structure of the glass roof allows the building to collect and reuse rain water and improves its geothermal power. Besides, the Fondation has attained its overall goal to reach HQE (Haute Qualité Environmentale) certification noted as Très Performant. The steps taken to achieve this level of certification could be considered equivalent to LEED Gold.
These glasses, originally transparent, have been covered by an array of colored filters - a temporary work by #danielburen since May 2016.
