Prada Art Foundation

Project: The Prada Art Foundation
Country: Italy
City: Milano

AMO, the research arm of Office for Metropolitan Architecture, recently unveiled their design for new experimental and exhibition spaces for the Prada Art Foundation near Milan. The development will involve transforming an early 20th-century industrial site south of Milan and adding an exhibition building, auditorium and museum tower to the existing seven structures.
The complex will accommodate events dedicated to cinema, design, architecture, philosophy, fashion and performance, as well as housing selections of works from the Prada Foundation collection.

The total exhibition space of 17,500 m2 will comprise 7,500 m2 of an existing industrial complex and approximately 10,000 m2 of new buildings. The complex will house the Foundation’s different events, which will be dedicated to disciplines ranging from cinema to design, architecture to philosophy, and fashion to performance. It will further include a permanent exhibition space for displaying the result of more than 15 years of the Foundation’s activities in the form of large-scale installations.
