The Chateau La Coste in Le Puy-Sainte-Reparade, near Aix-en-Provence, is a working vineyard, and, since 2004, a destination for a world-class collection of modern and contemporary art and architecture. For the past decade, the vineyard has been inviting artists and architects from around the world--including Tadao Ando, Louise Bourgeois, Liam Gillick, Jean Nouvel and Richard Serra, among others--to visit Chateau La Coste and select a location on the estate for a site-specific installation.
Tadao Ando: Chateau La Coste explores the five works by the Japanese architect (born 1941) featured at the Chateau: Gate, Art Centre, Four Cubes to Contemplate Our Environment, Chapel and Origami Benches (all completed in 2011). Beautifully illustrated with sketches, models and production photography, this volume also includes an essay by architecture historian Philip Jodidio analyzing how Ando's architecture inscribes itself into the landscape.
