prada's new show space of around 1,000 square metres,
which opened last autumn for the collections, exhibit some of
the elements that are going to make up the individual projects:
drawings, samples of experimental materials and clours,
photographic images, posters, models, full- scale reproductions
of structural components and furnishings, slide projections,
video tapes, films.
the idea behind the exhibition is to display the conceptual stages
of the different projects by the association 'H&deM' /
herzog & de meuron (basel 1978),
founded by jacques herzog (basel 1950) and
pierre de meuron (basel 1950)
and 'OMA / AMO', office for metropolitan architecture
(founded in rotterdam in 1975) and headed by
rem koolhaas (rotterdam, 1944)
for prada shops, offices and industrial structures
around the world.
