Architect: Rem Koolhaas (OMA)
Location: Milan, Italy
Koolhaas, who co-founded OMA in 1975, has had a long-term relationship with Prada. He has designed a number of projects for the Italian fashion house over the years, including catwalk sets, window installations and a shape-shifting pavilion.
Prada launched its foundation in 1993, as a cultural organisation dedicated to cinema, design, architecture, philosophy, fashion and performance – and OMA was the obvious choice to design it.
The complex officially opened in May 2015, with highlights including the "haunted house" clad in 24-carat gold leaf and the cinema camouflaged by mirrors.
