Conceived by architecture firm OMA – led by Rem Koolhaas – the new Milan venue of Fondazione Prada has been created by combining seven existing buildings with three new structures (Podium, Cinema and Torre), which has seen the transformation of 19,000m² of former distillery building dating from 1910 to a contemporary home for art exhibitions.

The variation in spaces have been reinforced by the constraints of the existing buildings and the wide variety of materials in the architects palette.  The project is described by Koolhaus as:

The Fondazione is not a preservation project and not a new architecture.  Two conditions that are usually kept separate here confront each other in a state of permanent interaction – offering an ensemble of fragments that will not congeal into a single image, or allow any part to dominate the others.
