Project Description

FROM THE ARCHITECTS:

For the SS 2016 Prada men’s show AMO investigates the perception of continuous space through an invasion of
the ceiling. Plastic sheets hang down acting as a virtual mold that defines the catwalk and seating areas, while the
concrete ground area acts as the negative of the above scene.

The fiberglass and polycarbonate stalactites manipulate the proportions and perspectives of the brutal and industrial
space. These alternating levels of views and transparencies introduce the guests to a blurred horizon. Arranged in
elliptical benches that are determined by the ceiling installation, they never perceive the room as a whole.

The wall, floor and seats, covered in concrete, emerge as a remnant, disturbing the boundaries between seating and
catwalk.
