Today, 20 April 2018, Torre, the new building marking the completion of Fondazione Prada’s Milan venue, is opened to the public.
Designed by Rem Koolhaas, Torre further develops the repertoire of different exhibition conditions that together define the architectural vision of the foundation, characterized by a variety of oppositions and fragments.
Each of the nine floors of 60-meters high Torre offers an original perception of the internal environments thanks to a specific combination of three spatial parameters. The external façades are characterized by an alternation of concrete and glass surfaces, which allows exposure from a northern, eastern or western side on the different floors, whereas the top gallery space is exposed to zenithal light. ⠀
With today's opening is also unveiled the project “Atlas” that hosts works from the Prada Collection displayed in a sequence of environments incorporating solos and confrontations, created through assonances or contrasts, between artists such as Carla Accardi and Jeff Koons, Walter De Maria, Mona Hatoum and Edward Kienholz and Nancy Reddin Kienholz, Michael Heizer and Pino Pascali, William N. Copley and Damien Hirst, John Baldessari and Carsten Höller.. “Atlas”, exhibiting artworks realized between 1960 and 2016, is also a dialogue between Miuccia Prada and Germano Celant.
