Dive into Frank Gehry's architecture
Johan Tonnoir, Maxence de Schrooder, Benjamin Cante
Dive into the heart of Frank Gehry's architecture with this *Parkour performance in the Fondation's building.
The free-runners, Johan Tonnoir, Maxence de Schrooder and Benjamin Cante, explore the glass vessel, from the Grotto to the terraces via the monumental staircase. They take over spaces, get inspiration from the sails movements, and question the very notion of gravity.
From an initial sketch drawn on a blank page in a notebook to the transparent cloud sitting at the edge of the Jardin d'Acclimatation in the Bois de Boulogne, Frank Gehry constantly sought to "design, in Paris, a magnificent vessel symbolising the cultural calling of France".
