At Lavau, the commune is favourable to nature contemplating. Tadashi Kawamata designs a new identity and uses the wooden path leading to an observatory, to offer to everyone a new viewpoint over the river.
The building site of the Observatory started in 2007 with the end of the path:little by little, the visitor rises in the middle of the reed beds and reaches a vast platform where a tower is built. In 2009, the artist rounded up the construction by adding a wooden path in the surrounding meadows and reed beds that were drawing the line between the tower and the village. Tadashi Kawamata created her a little path out of wood, 40cm above the ground, which is embedded in the marsh and seems to float in the natural environnement.
Accessible to physically handicapped, except tower.
