The Luma Foundation has released the latest set of images of the Luma Arles arts centre in the city of Arles ahead of its opening on 26 June 2021.
At the centrepiece of the arts centre in the French city of Arles is a 56-metre-high tower designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Gehry.
The 15,000-square-metre tower will house seminar rooms, exhibition spaces, research facilities, an auditorium and a cafe for the arts centre, which was established by Swiss collector Maja Hoffmann in 2004.
Its distinctive facade is clad in 11,000 irregularly arranged aluminium panels, broken by numerous protruding glass window boxes. The angular tower rises from a cylindrical glass base.
