japanese architect tadao ando is the master planner of a new arts center in the south of france,
commissioned by irish property developer paddy mckillen. the project currently under construction
is located at the chateau lacoste winery in aix-en-provence also includes structures designed
by leading architects: jean nouvel, frank gehry, norman foster and renzo piano.

ando drafted the art center’s master plan and designed its 3,000-square-meter (32,000 square
feet) main gallery. ‘we’re creating a space filled with water and the gallery will appear
to float on top of it
,’ he mentioned in an interview last year by bloomberg. the location holds
special meaning because ‘aix-en-provence is the home of paul cezanne, the father of
contemporary art.’

the center, which is due to open next year, features a music room designed by gehry
and a wine cellar by nouvel, and other structures by piano and foster, all pritzker laureates.
