For the 24-Hour Museum, AMO collaborated with Prada and artist Francesco Vezzoli to transform the 1937 Palais d'Iéna into the venue for a social and architectural laboratory, featuring an opening night party, public and press tours, and visits by schoolchildren. AMO designed the mise-en-scene of the modernist pavilion, by Auguste Perret, using the various spaces to stage - and interrogate - the three types of museums spaces that are predominant today.more..
A large pink neon cage turns the main space into a psychedelic concrete and metal nave. It hosts the majority of Vezzoli "statues" - foamboard classical figures with the faces of contemporary celebrities stuck on - and the gala dinner.
