Tadashi Kawamata was born in Japan in 1953. Based in Tokyo, he creates site-specific works all over the world. His favourite material is wood, and he uses beams and boards in installations that change our perception and experience of the sites he chooses. His works often take the form of structures, footbridges and overhead walkways that seem to spring out of their setting and demand to be used.

At Vez he has constructed three wooden tree houses in the bailey.
