This giant ship-shaped gallery of glass and steel, moored against the deep green of Jardin d’Acclimatation on the west side of Paris, almost overshadows the remarkable artwork inside. Anyone who’s come within spitting distance of an interior design publication in the last fifty years knows that its architect, Frank Gehry, has quite a notorious list of ‘deconstructivist’ buildings to his name, including the famous titanium-clad Guggenheim in Bilbao, Spain.

The permanent collection houses works by Maurizio Cattelan, Wolfgang Tillmans, Alberto Giacometti and Sigmar Polke, among others. It also boasts a particularly beautiful large-format image of a rock formation soaked in black paint by Tacita Dean, which makes reference to one of our favorite painters, Caspar David Friedrich.
