Frank Gehry's already iconic Fondation Louis Vuitton is finally welcoming special guests ahead of its opening at the end of the month

Yesterday saw the official opening of the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, with its first visitors stepping into the museum to view a collection works by Gerhard Richter, Bertrand Lavier, Sarah Morris, Taryn Simon, Frank Gehry and many others gathered together by Bernard Arnault. 

According to the organisers, the aim of the new museum is to display and "spread modern art from France to throughout the world", and so the core of the collection includes work from the 20th and 21st centuries.  The building itself was created by Frank Gehry, in his instantly recognisable style: And above the trees in the park of the Jardin d'Acclimatation floats the silvery, streamlined shape like a cloud.  

Inside the  Fondation Louis Vuitton there will also be a concert hall where on November 6, the legendary German electronica band Kraftwerk will play. The museum opens officially to the public on October 27.
