9 JULY THE BEAUTY OF CON­TRASTS

Apart from be­ing one of the most in­ter­est­ing in­no­va­tions on the con­tem­po­rary art scene, this is one of the few ex­hi­bi­tion sites in Mi­lan that can be vis­ited on Mon­days. The new ‘Torre’ at the Fon­dazione Prada is a 60-me­tre high tower fea­tur­ing nine lev­els, each boast­ing a dis­tinc­tive char­ac­ter. The Torre com­pletes the ex­hi­bi­tion head­quar­ters of the Foun­da­tion de­signed by Stu­dio OMA’s Rem Kool­haas, Chris van Duijn and Fed­erico Pom­pig­noli. Six of the build­ing’s new floors host ‘At­las’, a project re­sult­ing from a di­a­logue be­tween Mi­uc­cia Prada and Ger­mano Ce­lant. It fea­tures works cre­ated by in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed artists like Jeff Koons, Ed­ward Kien­holz, Wil­liam N. Co­p­ley, Damien Hirst and Carsten Höller, be­tween 1960 and 2016. The sev­enth floor houses the Torre restau­rant that con­tains orig­i­nal pieces from the Four Sea­sons Restau­rant in New York. The tower’s last sur­prise is the rooftop ter­race. Con­ceived as a multi-func­tional space, it in­cludes a bar area, where, amidst a play of light and re­flec­tions, vis­i­tors can ad­mire a 360-de­gree view over the city.
