Renowned architect Frank Gehry, who designed the striking Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, talks about his inspirations in this video by director Emile Rafael, in collaboration with the art institution itself.

“How do you create feeling with a building?” asks Frank in the above clip. It’s something that the architect has explored for many years.

This remarkable building, previously featured here, is inspired in part by his love of sailing.

“Most buildings are very static, but I like the idea of the movement, of the sense of movement, that it has,” he says. “There’s a transfer of this feeling through the bricks and mortar and steel that’s kind of amazing. It makes me want to do more.”
