Fondazione Prada Tower

The Tower is the latest completed part of the Fondazione Prada.

The tower is located on the north-western corner of the Fondazione Prada and houses site specific installations as well as a restaurant, a reception space and guest facilities.

The Tower is oriented away from the complex, facing the abandoned railroad tracks and the city center in the distance. The floors are cantilevered from the vertical circulation core so that the northern facade is free to have different openings and orientations.
The floors have gradually increasing heights in order to create a varied repertoire of gallery spaces.
