Tadao Ando Vitra By: Markus Keuter
Architecture firm SANAA has built a new Factory Building on the Vitra Campus, Weil am Rhein in Germany. 1993 was the last year for construction on the Vitra Campus until the factory building. The university already has many important structures from before ’93, among them area Tadao Ando’s Conference Pavilion and the Zaha Hadid fire station.
