YOUTH MOVEMENT: Construction of the Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation in Paris’ Bois de Boulogne is due to resume imminently after having being halted by the city’s administrative court in late 2010. The court annulled the museum’s construction permit following an appeal by the Coordination pour la sauvegarde du Bois de Boulogne organization (or Coordination for the protection of the Bois de Boulogne organization). The city’s administrative court of appeals April 14 ruled LVMH could resume work on the Frank Gehry-designed building, though laws concerning the construction permit still remain to be voted through parliament over the coming months. Paris’ City Hall said that the site, which will house a permanent art collection plus a young artists’ residence, is expected to be completed on schedule for 2013.
