The tower will house a variety of functions, including research facilities, workshop and seminar room, as well as artist studios . The building is expected to be completed in spring 2019. The 9,000-square-metre stainless steel tower sits on LUMA Arles, a large site previously occupied by 19th century railroad workshops. Today, this area is undergoing a rehabilitation process helmed by New York-based Selldorf Architects, while Belgian landscape architect Bas Smets plan to create a beautiful park adjacent to Gehry’s mountain-like tower .
