Paris1Hot on the heels of Paris Fashion Week, comes a sexy installation by Italian artist, Vanessa Beecroft, for the world leader in luxury, Louis Vuitton’s new Paris store. Designed by architects Eric Carlson and Peter Marino, the glitzy new house represents a groundbreaking architectural achievement, conceived as a promenade of terraces in homage to the historical and cultural importance of the Champs-Elysees as the world’s most stylish promenade.

Equally unprecedented is the integration of art and architecture, with works by three leading contemporary artists displayed as landmarks of the house promenade. Exclusively for the Champs-Elysees, the American artist James Turrell created an impressive “Wide Glass” modular light sculpture, while fellow American Tim White-Sobieski contributed a cutting-edge video installation alongside the house’s spectacular 20-meter long “traveling staircase.” Meanwhile, the Danish conceptual artist Olafur Eliasson transformed an elevator linking up directly with the top floor of the Champs-Elysees building, which will open in January 2006 as a permanent space of artistic and cultural expression, into a “chamber of sensual entropy” isolated from its surroundings.
