Here is a presentation of the proposed Prada pavillion – called the transformer – in Seoul by the architect OMA.
This architect’s mind is like a steel trap. Always thinking. It’s always about intelligence, a marriage of form and idea and tectonic. He never allows orthodoxy to compromise what he is trying to do. It’s never merely about beauty or aesthetics – we have a growing suspicion that bag is only half full. How can a building, in a city, merely indicate who is serving and who is eating?
Anyway … somehow through this open process, he comes up with this Tatlin like, constructivist but thoroughly contemporary, abstract but contextual and most of all bold construction.
