LUMA Foundation

The LUMA Foundation was established by Maja Hoffmann in 2004 in Switzerland to support the activities of independent artists and pioneers, as well as institutions working in the fields of art and photography, publishing, documentary and multimedia. The centerpiece of LUMA Arles in the Parc des Ateliers will be a new Arts Resource Center designed by Frank Gehry, which will house research and reference facilities, workshop and seminar rooms, and artist studios and presentation spaces.


L’Observatoire International is designing the lighting for the main entrance, lobby and public circulation spaces, interior and exterior staircases, the atrium and "drum" surrounding the building of the Arts Resource Center.
