2010 FW Prada Women's Show

In his work On the Art of Buildings in Ten Books, Leon Battista Alberti asks the following question: "If the city is like some large house and the house in turn like some small city, cannot the varied parts of the house … be considered miniature buildings?" The Fall / Winter 2010 Prada catwalk show space is in an abstraction of a city, yet conceived on the domestic scale of a club, with its dark, cozy and moody atmosphere.
