VITRA DESIGN MUSEUM

Vitra Campus

Architecture Design Industry

Edited by Mateo Kries.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Vitra Campus</I>.Since the 1980s, the Vitra company has erected buildings on its grounds in collaboration with some of the leading architects of the present day, including Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry, Tadao Ando, SANAA, Álvaro Siza, Nicholas Grimshaw and Herzog & de Meuron. This has resulted in a unique architectural ensemble, about which the architectural critic Philip Johnson wrote: “Since the Weissenhofsiedlung in Stuttgart in 1927, there has not been a gathering in a single place of a group of buildings designed by the most distinguished architects in the Western world.” The Vitra Campus currently attracts over 330,000 annual visitors. While the VitraHaus by Herzog & de Meuron provides the opportunity to experience furniture classics and new products from the Vitra Home Collection, the renowned Vitra Design Museum by Frank Gehry presents alternating exhibitions, which are accompanied by numerous events and workshops. Further attractions on the Vitra Campus include a museum shop, a café and guided architectural tours of the buildings on the Campus. With roughly 300 illustrations, Vitra Campus offers an overview of Vitra architecture, its daily use, the development of the Campus and biographies of the architects. It is ideally suited as a souvenir, as preparation for a visit, as a Campus guide, or simply as interesting reading on some of the most significant architects and buildings of our time.

Vitra Campus: Architecture Design Industry

Vitra Campus: Architecture Design Industry

Diogene, Renzo Piano and the Renzo Piano Building Workshop's 2013 minimalist living unit, is the smallest and most recent building (to date) on the Vitra design and architecture campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany. Measuring only 2.5 x 3 meters, Diogene "functions autonomously as a self-contained system and is thus fully independent of its environment. The front serves as a living room: on one side, there is a pull-out sofa; on the other, a folding table beneath the window. Behind a partition, the interior contains a shower and toilet as well as a kitchen, which has likewise been reduced to the bare essentials." Featured image is reproduced from Vitra's newly released overview of its storied campus, featuring work by the world's most distinguished architects, including Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry, Tadao Ando, SANAA, Álvaro Siza, Nicholas Grimshaw and Herzog & de Meuron, to name just a few. continue to blog
