Though its stint was shorten by the sudden economy down turn in 2008. Luxury fashion house CHANEL, designer Karl Lagerfeld, and Prikzter Architecture Prize winner Zaha Hadid have decided to resurrect Mobile Art, the traveling CHANEL Contemporary Art Container, once more, this time permanently at its original final destination of Paris. Unprecedented in its scale and concept for art lovers and fashion addicts, the UFO-shaped exhibition hall will sit next to another Prikzter Architecture Prize winner, Jean Novel, metal and glass creation at the Arab World Institute, a perfect juxtaposition between one organic style and structured form. The Mobile Art will house collaborative artworks from 15 artists, each utilized CHANEL as an inspiration. If everything goes accordingly, the complex is set to open in March of 2011. via: WWD
