New Fondazione Prada Tower
At its launch in May 2015, the Fondazione Prada ‘s nine-story, 197-foot Torre was still under construction. After three year, finally completed, the landmark building in the former gin distillery on the edge of Milan will be open to the public on April 20, during the awaited design week.
Its completion marks the final stage of the more than 19,000 square metre complex of art designed by Rem Koolhaas with Chris van Duijn and Federico Pompignoli of OMA, the studio led by the Dutch star architect.
Six of the floors in the wedge-shaped Torre are exhibition spaces. The other levels contain visitor facilities and a restaurant, and the building is topped off with a bar on the roof that offers a panoramic view of Milan.
