PARIS — Plans by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis to open a Frank Gehry-designed Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation in the Bois de Boulogne here next year may not bloom.
That’s due to a recent revision of regulations by Paris’ administrative court of appeals, which was responding to 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 court earlier this month annulled certain regulations — which are now under review — concerning construction in Paris’ wooded and green spaces. François Douady, the forest association’s president, said the court’s decision is bound to have an indirect impact on LVMH’s construction permit.
“The court will soon decide whether it is still valid or cancelled,” he explained.
A spokeswoman for LMVH said that for the time being, the company is going ahead with the project.
