ON THE COVER:
Locally sourced Rocherons Dore ClairTM limestone from Polycor's quarry in the Burgundy region of France was the stone of choice for the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris. The stone's earthy beige tones, with occasional dashes of pinkish-hued calcite veining, add a subtle color and exceptional elegance to the cultural landmark, which was designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry. Learn more about the project, as well as the sustainability of French limestone and how its use connected the Foundation with the community, by turning to the story beginning on page 66.
