Picture 4

Rem Koolhaas' tetrahedron-shaped pavilion for Prada Transformer is a 6 month installation in Gyeonghui Palace (경희궁). The steel-framed random white structure that looks out of place will host 4 events all the while rolling over between exhibitions to create a new environment for each event. I can't really explain it so just go here.

Inside:
The debut event: Waist Down - Skirts by Miuccia Prada
Huge runway cutouts, robot mannequins swaying/spinning skirts, vacuum sealed skirts, some skirts by Korean design students
