Designer Miuccia Prada and Rom Koolhaas presented the 160-ton steel structure (pushing the boundaries between architecture and fashion), which can be lifted and rotated in an hour to create a different shape and interior. The Transformer ($10 million) is currently in the form of a hexagon to stage a reprise of the exhibition “Waist Down—Skirts by Miuccia Prada.” It will go on to host an art exhibition, film festival and fashion show, morphing its appearance along the way. The Prada Transformer will, at different times, be a gallery, a movie screen, and site of a fashion show.
