Today's archidose #410

vitrahaus, originally uploaded by ReallyLucky.

The VitraHaus in Weil Am Rhein, Germany by Herzog & de Meuron, Germany, 2010. According to Vitra's page on the architecture of VitraHaus, " The concept of the VitraHaus connects two themes that appear repeatedly in the oeuvre of Herzog & de Meuron: the theme of the archetypal house and the theme of stacked volumes."

Take a virtual architecture tour of the furniture maker's campus, which also features buildings by Tadao Ando, Nicholas Grimshaw, Zaha Hadid, and Alvaro Siza, as well as a SANAA-designed factory building under construction.
