ASTONISHING IN AND OUT ARCHITECTURES

Posted by: Gisella Borioli
The contemporary art museum that contains art work of the private collection of Miucia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli has just opened. The beautiful, candid, disquieting “Torre” designed by Rem Khoolaas. The construction completed the artistic offer of Fondazione Prada in Milan placing a futuristic architecture in the complex of old and new buildings dedicated to contemporary art, already an unmissable destination of the cultural Milan. The floors of the tower have irregular heights, from 2,7 meters of the first floor up to 8 of the upper level and containing collections of different origins and inspirations. Every space overlooks to a breath-taking glass wall hunched forwards on emptiness, on an original panorama of the Milanese suburb that extends up the city’s limits. The most admired space, an unmissable fairy-tale, the enormous “mushrooms” by Carsten Höller that rotate upside down. Another museum that stands out as art work is the 150 meters high gold “frame” named Frame of Dubai, recently opened on project by the award-winning Mexican artist Fernando Donis, partner of Studio OMA of Rem Khoolaas for eight years. A surreal architecture, a large square that sparkles like jewellery close to Zabeel Parc that frames the city and shows the old, new and the future Dubai. In addition to the spectacular view that can be admired from the glass window and floor of the last floor, as a matter of fact you enter directly into the world of tomorrow among visual effects, 3D projections and virtual reality. It feels like actually living there, in the city where cars fly, humanoids robots are found on the street, the atmosphere is rarefy and secure.
