Seoul's Rem Koolhaas Prada Transformer Opens Tonight With "Waists Down - Skirts by Miuccia Prada"

Seoul’s Prada Transformer, the four-sided, pyramid-like, moveable object building that “reforms” itself architecturally and structurally, will officially open tonight with the South Korean premier of the traveling exhibit, “Waist Down—Skirts by Miuccia Prada.”

More than 100 skirts from the designer’s first women’s collection in 1988 up to today will be on exhibit in the multi-purpose Prada Transformer, located in a centralized space between the outer and inner gates of the Gyeong-hui Palace, adjacent to the Seoul Museum of History.

The Prada Transformer vascillates as a four-story ‘art’ object and an architectural building, that rotates and redefines itself every two months or so. The WSJ is following the opening, in a two-part article. Click for part two.

This brief glimpse of Prada’s Waist Down Exhibition in the Soho New York store, has a remarkable likeness to The Transformer design.

Smart Sensuality designer Miuccia Prada has led the collaboration among creativity, art and fashion for years. The April issue of i-D features Prada on the cover, with an in-depth interview between Prada and artist Francisco Vezzoli, who produced the i-D cover portrait.
