BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Tycoon plans Paris arts complex: "France's richest man has unveiled plans to build a major contemporary arts centre in Paris.

Luxury goods tycoon Bernard Arnault wants to open the Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation in 2010.

The 6,000 square metre space will be designed by Frank Gehry, the architect behind the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.

'The goal of this foundation is to spread the influence of culture, and the influence of France,' Mr Arnault told a press conference.

'We will place contemporary art in the context of modern and classical art,' he added."
