Herzog and De Meuron
 
location Weil am Rhein
function museum, shop, showroom
contributed by MI_MOA

A new building has been added to the Vitra Campus. The VitraHaus lies in close proximity to the Swiss border and the furniture manufacture's Basel headquarters. Here the Vitra Home Collection is shown. The furnishings and objects are arranged in a variety of settings for both living and working: classics by Charles & Ray Eames, George Nelson, Isamu Noguchi, Jean Prouvé and Verner Panton are combined with contemporary designs by Maarten Van Severen, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Antonio Citterio, Hella Jongerius, Jasper Morrison and others. With the VitraHaus, there is a sense of "homecoming" not only with regard to the architects, but also in the building concept. Herzog & de Meuron make reference to the archetypal form of the gabled house, which is found in residential structures around the globe. They have stretched this basic form and combined a series of "houses" in an intersecting stack.

greagt addition to the campus. Got to see it at night when lit from outside, and visit from the inside. Usage of space pretty good given that it doesn't seem so from outside. comment to sanya: Gehry is pretty cool, pls take into account that the Vitra campus is an incredible concentration of works of the world's best architects, privately funded. Herzog and de Meuron also can screw up: check out their failure in the Aargau (CH) museum

This Herzog de Meuron structure makes the nearby Frank Gehry's Museum look like a piece of crap.

Already looked very promising on the pictures, is even cooler in reality. Great exterior, but also great layouts inside, great structure to the different levels, great use of the surroundings. All in all, a superb building and another demonstration just how versatile herzog
