Very cool. Prada is all about unconventionality so I think it's a good fit for them.

The "tower" (renamed "Haunted House") has been restored with +200,000 golden leafs produced by Giusto Manetti Battiloro.

Koolhas is very talented, but I think he missed the mark this time. Looks like too much of a mishmash: hard to see a coherent structure there.

The museum is still incomplete

I think that among other new spaces, the marble tower will be an iconic building. One of the main features of the new intervention is the use of materials, ranging from exterior glazing to white concrete structures, the aluminum foam and a blown up aluminum. Also I loved the so-called "haunted house" (golden tower): the building has been covered with sheets of gold by specialised artisans. The choice of gold aims to give importance to something very modest that eventually will get a soft patina like an old sculpture.

BTW Prada is doing a good work. Even Armani Silos (Giorgio Armani new museum) worth a visit.

A lot of art in this museum is by elitist bullshit artist, like the the work of Damien Hirst. C'mon!!! (That's just my opinion)

There is a lot of classic art, mixing ancient Greek and Roman works, but also from other countries (an example is the fragmented torso of Penelope from Iran). There are classic sculptures with body shapes collected by Mr Bertelli and Mrs Prada over the last decade. Additional loans are coming from more than 40 museums around the world, including Louvre, Prado, British Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

In other galleries, there are specific installations created by renowned contemporary artists. On the walls you can find mixing artworks of different artists: from Lucio Fontana to Donald Judd, from Yves Klein to Jeff Koons. Other spaces host historic cars.

The arts center includes a library, a children area to teach young people about art, there are also spaces dedicated to cinema, showing works like the ones of Roman Polanski. There is a large exhibition pavilion for temporary shows; another is a nine-story tower (U/C) that will house long-term installations and a restaurant; the third building, the theater, allowing the space to open onto the courtyard for outdoor dance, theather performances and literature lectures.

What about the café? It is a tribute to traditional Milanese bar, that take inspiration from Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II (where the first Prada store was opened in the city in 1913). The terrazzo floors pay homage to mid-century masterpieces of Italian cinema from the 50s and 60s.

Fondazione Prada will also host works of emerging talents. As I said before, the museum is still under development, other masterpieces will be added soon in new spaces currently U/C. It's a place to look at art, architecture, cinema and philosophy. Fondazione Prada is conceived as a laborary-museum, opened to everyone. Surely a new way to involve people in a museum.
