Gehry designs for his favourite city 

Louis Vuitton yesterday unveiled plans for an enormous £70m glass museum in Paris. If built – and the project has yet to be given planning permission – it will almost certainly be nicknamed the Cloud, although officially it would be called the Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation. The project has been commission by Bernard Arnauld, president of the luxury goods group Louis Vuitton Möet Hennessy and the richest man in France. He said the building was his personal dream and it was his mission to give the public a chance to discover art. The museum will house permanent and temporary exhibitions of contemporary and classical art and is hoped to open in 2010 at the latest.
