Frank Gehry’s tower at the LumaArles arts center opens next year.CHRIS HELLIER

Swiss-born art collector and philanthropist Maja Hoffmann has invested a decade (and nearly $200 million) in laying the foundation for the city of Arles, France, which played muse to van Gogh and Gauguin, to become a new cultural hub. Her biggest project is Luma Arles, a 20-acre contemporary arts complex that includes a performance venue that launched last summer, and the crown jewel, a tower designed by Frank Gehry, which is slated to be completed in late 2019. In anticipation of Arles’s ascent to art destination status, Hoffmann has opened a Michelin-starred restaurant, La Chassagnette, and the creatively decorated hotel L’Arlatan, which is set in a grand centuries-old townhouse.
