Prada Transformer

We were SO lucky to have seen this.
designed by OMA, The Office for Metropolitan Architecture, it is a HUGE structure that will transform from gallery exhibition space to lecture theatre to  cinema and to art space.
It is set in the grounds of a 16th Century Palace and the juxtaposition is simply wonderful.
So are the very novel use of shipping containers as corridors, office and reception spaces really created a special piece of work that is both WOW and recycles.
The cute guards (all in Prada of course) let us in to have a peep as we had a flight in 3 hours time to go back to HK, a very lovely show of Prada skirts, some mounted on "spinning hips".
