Fondazione Prada is an exhibition space dedicated to contemporary art and culture which exists due to the patronage of Miuccia Prada and her husband Patrizio Bertelli, head of one of the most famous fashion brands in the world. The project was opened in 2015 according to a design by the Dutch architecture firm OMA, led by Rem Koolhaas, hosting a permanent contemporary art gallery with works by various artists including Jeff Koons, Walter De Maria, Pino Pascali, Damien Hirst and Carsten Höller.
Characterized by an articulated architectural configuration that combines three existing buildings (Podium, Cinema and Torre) and new construction, it is the result of the transformation of a distillery dating back to the first decade of the twentieth century. The building at the entrance welcomes the audience with the “Bar Luce”, conceived by director Wes Anderson to recreate the atmosphere of a typical Milanese café.
In the almost 20,000 square metres of the Fondazione Prada complex, there are large spaces dedicated to exhibitions and temporary events.
Torre is a 60-metre high building made of white concrete and consists of nine floors of different heights, floor plans and orientation, connected by a panoramic lift. Inside the building, project “Atlas”, emerged from a dialogue between Miuccia Prada and Germano Celant, is unveiled.
