Rem Koolhaas + Prada = The new transformer

'Prada Transformer' - designed by OMA/Rem Koolhaas showcases a ground-breaking series of cross-cultural exhibitions, screenings and live events. The shape-shifting transformer combines four sides of a tetrahedron: hexagon, cross, rectangle and circle into one pavilion. The building is entirely covered with a smooth elastic membrane and is flipped using cranes, to completely reconfigure the visitor's experience with each new programme. This is a building with four identities, whenever one shape becomes the ground plan, the other three shapes become the walls and ceiling, defining the space.
