For this Late Hours event, the new exhibitions "Simon Hantaï. The Centenary Exhibition" and "Fugues in Color" are the meeting point for the cultural guides, who will provide insight, reveal their discoveries, and share their secrets. The exploration continues with the 6th edition of the FLV Lab for which students in graphic design, multimedia narration, and architecture were invited to share their projects with the public. Experiment the prototypical mediation systems and discuss them with their designers to develop tomorrow’s approaches to culture.

FLV Lab #6


Each year, the FLV Lab invites the Graphic Design and Multimedia Narration students from the Diplôme Supérieur d’Arts Appliqués of the Jacques Prévert de Boulogne-Billancourt secondary school to design and construct the prototypes for digital projects based on the Frank Gehry building and the exhibitions of the moment. This year, the students will propose visitors an immersion in the world of the Fondation as soon as they leave the Les Sablons underground station through four fun, creative mobile applications. Come test these prototypes and speak with the students who designed them.

In partnership with the Master of Graphic Design and Multimedia Narration students from the Diplôme Supérieur d’Arts Appliqués of the Jacques Prévert de Boulogne-Billancourt, coordinated by Bris du Boullay and Laure Siéfert, with the technical help of Blanc-Tournant studio.

Every 30 minutes starting at the “Short Architecture Tours” meeting points

Fifteen students from the Ecole nationale supérieure d’architecture Paris Val de Seine studied Frank Gehry, the architect of the Fondation. They will share the highlights of their collective work during the night-time event through three short-tour themes.

With “Gehry, where art meets architecture”, we will talk about the dialogue that the architect maintains with artists from his youth in Los Angeles to his most recent collaborations, particularly on cultural facilities. “Gehry, storytelling architecture” will explain how the architecte dig into his personal life and mobilises everyone's imagination when discovering his buildings. “Technical approaches of Gehry’s architecture” will put a light on how the Fondation is the result of an exceptional collaborative work between architects, engineers and companies to deliver an exceptional building, at the cutting edge of technology. Finally, "Textures and material effects of the Fondation Louis Vuitton" will be the opportunity to look closer to multiple constructive, technical, and spatial details of the Fondation, from the Grotto to the terraces.

Discover the secrets of how the building was achieved, and explore the inspiring, artistic world of the architect. You’ll never look at Fondation the same again!
