Miuccia Prada on Art, Sex and Collaboration
March 3, 2017
"Co-chaired since 1993 by Miuccia Prada and her husband and Prada CEO Patrizio Bertelli, the foundation found a permanent home in Milan, created by Rem Koolhaas and OMA, which opened to the public in 2015. A smaller but still appropriately grand exhibition space is located in a 17th century palazzo in Venice. The Milan base was originally a distillery dating back to the early 20th century and combines seven existing buildings and three new structures. They could so easily jar but are, conversely, aesthetically pleasing and harmonious to the point where one could be forgiven for never wanting to leave: a meeting of the timeless and the innovative, again this is quintessential Prada."
