Francois Pinault, the french fashion magnet, announces that he will be adding to the cultural richness of Paris with a private museum. Mr. Pinault famously created two private museums in Venice, Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana and he will now be adding to this collection.
The museum is set to take over the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the center of Paris and the city’s Mayor said they will find a new home for the building’s current occupants. Tadao Ando will oversee the renovation process just as he did for the two museums in Venice. If this museum is half as spectacular as Pinault’s Venice museums we are sure it will be our new favorite in Paris!
