Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris

The Louis Vuitton Fondation art museum opened in 2014. It is situated in Bois de Boulogne and is close to the Jardin d’Acclimation in Paris.

The designer Frank Gehry took inspiration from late 19th-century glass and garden architecture to create a unique, contemporary building which forms 12 sails—each one unique.

Macalloy supplied Stainless Steel Tension bars in a range of sizes, with special components engineered and supplied by Macalloy. Our specialist in-house equipment was also used to tension the bars.
