At Lavau-sur-Loire, Tadashi Kawamata has designed a little wooden path, slightly raised up, which runs into the marsh and seems to float out there. Little by little the path rises in the middle of the reed beds and reaches a huge platform : a 6-metre high tower, a real observatory, rises up out of the marsh.
Tadashi Kawamata works around the world to produce his projects, which always blend in perfectly with the site he has chosen. He uses recovered materials or wood from building to build his ins-tallations. Cheap and easy to handle by everyone, they are synonymous with mobility and precariousness.
