Apprentice Architect Mini is made for kids to explore and learn what goes into the making of one of Frank Gehry’s most iconic buildings – the Fondation Louis Vuitton.
This app helps children experience the Fondation Louis Vuitton even when they’re not at the gallery. Learn how the Fondation was built, meet the people who made it and get inspired to design something yourself!
“When kids come to the Fondation, I want them to elevate their imagination, so they grow up thinking of architecture differently” – Frank Gehry.
Included in the app are two fun and creative games:
Where’s Frank? Meet the people behind the Fondation Louis Vuitton. In this fun game you can search through the gallery’s visitors to see if you can find the key members of the team – from the man who operated the crane to the curator who chose the art to Frank Gehry himself – and, at the same time, discover what each role involves.
How does this work? With the amazing 360 degree photography and a fun quiz, we take you inside the sails, explain how the sound engineers work in the auditorium, and how the museum is designed to reflect the space it sits in.
About the Fondation Louis Vuitton:
The Fondation Louis Vuitton is a corporate foundation and a private cultural initiative dedicated to art and artists. The foundation represents a new phase in art patronage and in the culture initiated by LVMH in France and around the world over the past two decades.
The Fondation Louis Vuitton’s mission is to encourage and promote contemporary artistic creation both in France and internationally. The collections and programmes will continue the tradition of artistic and creative movements of the 20th and 21st centuries.
The building for the Fondation Louis Vuitton includes exhibition galleries dedicated to the permanent collection, temporary exhibitions and artists’ commissions. It is completed by a flexible auditorium for the presentation of multi-disciplinary performances and events. Its terraces offer unique panoramic views of Paris and the lush greenery of the Jardin d’Acclimatation, the inspiration for Frank Gehry’s architecture of glass and transparency.
