ANNOUNCES THE OPENING OF TORRE
Fondazione Prada announces the opening to the public of Torre on 20 April 2018. The new tower marks the completion of the foundation’s Milan venue, designed by Rem Koolhaas, with Chris van Duijn and Federico Pompignoli, from architecture firm OMA, and first unveiled in May 2015.
Torre is one of the three new buildings within the architectural compound. The 60-meters high white concrete building becomes a recognizable landmark for the Fondazione, revealing itself within Milan’s urban skyline while simultaneously framing an unprecedented view of the city through its large windows.
Torre develops on nine levels, six of which are exhibition spaces, for a total surface of approximately 2.000 square meters. The remaining three levels host a restaurant and other visitors’ facilities. The structure is completed by a 160 square meters panoramic terrace hosting a rooftop bar. The exhibition spaces have been conceived to display works and large installations from the Prada Collection, and set to become a resource of potential perspectives which future projects and new artists will contribute to.
