Tadashi Kawamata constructs temporary site-specific structures that ask viewers to reassess their environments. Engaging with ideas of home, shelter, and social contexts, Kawamata creates installations in both public and private spaces. Like an architect, he assembles a team to collectively build works based on his project plans and plywood collage studies. Based in both Tokyo and Paris, he has built humble tree huts that perch on building façades in high-profile urban settings, such as the Centre Pompidou and the Place Vendôme, Paris. His in situ works across Europe and America include Cathédrale des Chaises (2012), a nestlike shelter built of stacked chairs, and Under the Water, a ceiling canopy of reclaimed wood.
