Waist Down.

Miuccia Prada's latest project, 'Prada Transformer' is an outstanding structure designed to accomodate a series of events in Seoul, South Korea. The tetrahedron has four different configurations, which can simply be switched by rotating the structure with construction cranes.  The 'Transformer' is designed so floors can become walls and walls become ceilings in just one hour.
Currently in the form of a hexagon, it is hosting a reprise exhibition 'Waist Down - Skirts by Miuccia Prada.' 

"Being eccentric from top-to-toe is too much, but you can do eccentric with a skirt. Put a simple shirt or top with an eccentric skirt and it isn't a big deal. There is so much more room tp play with." - Miuccia Prada
With cardboard cut-out models lining the transformer's skeletal interior, skirt clad mannequins dotted around, and individual pieces suspended from the ceilings - Miuccia's eclectic exhibition is a graceful compliment to the sweeping mechanics of the Prada pavilion.
