Named The Tower, the stainless steel-clad cultural building is the centerpiece of the Luma Arles arts campus. According to Gehry, the design references Arles’ Roman architecture, nearby mountains.

It was designed in part to pay homage to Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night, the masterpiece painted during the artist’s stay at an asylum in nearby Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.

Sheathed in over 11,000 reflective steel panels, the glittering Luma Arles emerges from the Provençal landscape like a windswept tree.

The 56-meter-high arts building contains the exhibition galleries, archives, a library, offices, seminar rooms, and Luma Arles cafe.

Covered with 11,000 irregularly arranged stainless steel panels, the distinctive tower was designed to be a landmark structure for the arts center, established in 2013 by Swiss collector Maja Hoffmann.
