At the edge of Milan, in an old industrial area, the new Prada foundation is rising. Several buildings, including one covered in gold, and a tower of 60m height, are hosting exhibitions for some of the most important contemporary artists. The Pritzker Prized architect, Rem Koolhaas, is widely regarded as one of the most important architectural thinkers and urbanists of his generation. In contrast with the luxury, facing the museum and the gold facade, across the abandoned rail track, there is a refugee camp hosting 80 people from all over Africa.
