Our friends at OMA | Office for Metropolitan Architecture‘s 9-storey exhibition venue “The Tower” is a luminous white poured-in-place concrete structure which stands beside the Prada Foundation arts complex in Milano. The Rotterdam office of OMA and its head, Rem Koolhaas, along with Christopher van Duijn, have headed up the renovation of 7 former industrial buildings dating back to 1910, and constructed 3 new. The tower is relatively small in terms of footprint—21.6,K Sqft, featuring one gallery per floor on six levels, with the additional three featuring a café, coat check rooms, and miscellaneous services—but stands 200’. It features rectangular and wedge-shaped floors.
