Developed at the New Museum’s cultural incubator, Collecteurs is a public-benefit corporation on a mission to give the public access to the millions of unseen artworks in freeports, storage facilities and private homes.


“Designed by avant-garde Hungarian architect Antti Lovag and built from 1975–1989, Cardin’s 8,500 square-meter property is a life form lying sprawled in the sun of the Mediterranean coastline.

The skeleton of the cave-inspired villa is made of lightweight mesh and rods.”
