Children and youth and families activities

The Fondation Louis Vuitton has chosen to lavish special attention on younger visitors.

Families can enjoy a fun and interactive introduction to contemporary art and to the building itself.

These educational walking tours for 3-5 year olds are punctuated by game stops where children can learn about a work of art, an architectural detail, a material, and so on.

A narrative thread, by turns poetic and imaginary, is constructed from group-participation nursery rhymes, poems and fables. Using hands-on games and word play, these living stories bring art and architecture to life for our youngest visitors.

Try your hand at art in workshops held in the Atelier, on the site of the converted Musée en Herbe, which re-opened at the Fondation in April 2015. These creative workshops are a regular event during French school holidays and are followed by a tour of the Fondation building and its collections.

In the course of the workshop, parents and children together create an original work of art, a medium to explore the Fondation building and its collections – while making memories to take home.

Strike out on your own with the Apprentice Architect app

Specially designed for children aged 8-12, “Apprentice Architect” is a fun and enjoyable app that encourages kids to actively explore the new Frank Gehry building on their own.

 

Available for iPad free of charge in both French and English at the App Store, “Apprentice Architect” is a virtual companion for your family visit which challenges your child’s observational and deductive skills, dexterity, and above all creativity, so that he or she can become an “apprentice architect”.

 

From sketching to site management, children can try their hand at various steps in the construction process with six fun, clever games:

- Draw and build with "My sketchbook": trace the outlines of a nature-inspired building then use "My studio" to render it in three dimensions,

- Observe and watch with "Look around you": find unique perspectives, photograph them, then hunt out the hidden characters who built the Fondation or run it today in the "Where's Frank?" mural,

- Skilfully control the crane and painstakingly install the glass sails in "Take the controls",

- Discover the secrets of construction in the "How does this work?" quiz.

 

So that as many people as possible can use the application, there are a number of tablets available free for use by the public.

Lucky Vibes : The game of the Fondation!

Lucky Vibes is a game you can play on your iPhone that combines music and dexterity. It is a radical new initiative from a cultural institution.

Fly over Frank Gehry’s building in your Tubaloon to catch as many notes as possible. But don’t lose your tune - and watch out for obstacles!

Lucky Vibes has four levels that depict the Fondation Louis Vuitton in different situations: in summer, in a storm, at night and during a concert. When transitioning between levels, players learn interesting facts about the building and its history.

Special “competition days” will be held several times a year, when the best players can win prizes and exclusive invitations to the Fondation.

With its new Lucky Vibes app, the Fondation is appealing to a digitally savvy public, particularly teenagers and young adults.

 

 

How to get the game?

The game is available free from the App Store, and the Google Play in French and English.
