  Vitra - conference building by Tadao Ando
back to top


Several star architects planned various buildings on the Vitra premises in "Weil/Rhein" (Vitra is a furniture manufacturer).
Zaha Hadid was allowed to build her first building (a firestation - as such used for two years, before it became an exhibition space).
Gehry built his first europe-project (the Vitra museum). Very disappointing, as I find.
Tadao Ando planned my Vitra-favourite - the conference building. People saying Ando's fairfaced concrete is only hot in Japan never saw this building.
Fuller and Prouvé are there, as well.
Álvaro Siza is responsible for a very nice production hall.
