Fondazione Prada is housed in and around a former gin distillery in the Milanese district of Largo Isarco. Although the complex dates to 1910, Rem Koolhaas’ architectural firm OMA refashioned it in grandiose style for the foundation’s 2018 opening: An eye-catching four-story building clad entirely in gold leaf and a 60-meter-tall white concrete tower stand behind the more muted tones of northern Italian industrial facades. Spanning the worlds of art, design and fashion, Prada’s cultural center offers permanent and temporary exhibition spaces, a movie theatre and a Wes Anderson-designed café that reflects the movie director’s distinctive aesthetic.
