Bleak but beautiful.
For my last post I’ve chosen a building that I think is one of the most interesting I’ve come across.
This building, dating back to 1910, was part of the distillery complex at the site that has since transformed into ‘Fondazione Prada’. The whole building now serves as an intimate exhibition space and is entirely clad in 24-carat gold leaf.
Designed by @oma.eu , led by Rem Koolhaas, Fondazione Prada is an encouraging example of what can be achieved through the reuse of space; in this case, an abandoned industrial plot.
It’s really worth going to visit the next time you’re in #Milan .
That’s all from me. I hope you’ve enjoyed the takeover as much as I have.
Cheers, Matteo @matteo_angelo
