Fondation Louis Vuitton by Frank Gehry

Architect Frank Gehry was commissioned to build the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris (Boulogne). The design has been thought according to the setting of the Jardin d’Acclimatation and the willing to create an ultra-modern building. The result is here : the deconstructivism of Gehry is right here and we can read it through the 12 sails in transparent glass held by wooden beams. Opening on 27th October.

Hueso Restaurant in Mexico

Mexican architects Cadena+Asociados have thought Hueso Restaurant’s interior, located in the district of Guadalajara, in Mexico. The project was to renovate a building built in the 40′s and to make a place that lets us see the squelette of the structure. An interior which reminds us of curio cabinets, with a dominance of white, wood and ceramic, to discover through Jaime Navarro’s pictures.
