Since the 1980s, the Vitra company has been erecting buildings in collaboration with some of the leading architects of the present day, including Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry, Tadao Ando, SANAA, #65533;lvaro Siza, Nicholas Grimshaw and Herzog & de Meuron. The Vitra Campus currently attracts over 350,000 visitors each year. While the renowned Vitra Design Museum presents alternating exhibitions, the newly built Schaudepot gives visitors an insight into parts of the museum's extensive collection. In addition, during their time on the Campus, visitors can take part in a guided tour of the architecture or a workshop, enjoy the view from the Vitra Slide Tower and afterwards slide down the 37-metre-long slide, experience furniture classics and new products from the Vitra Home Collection in the VitraHaus as well as savour the offers of the shops and caf#65533;s. With roughly 200 illustrations, The Vitra Campus offers an overview of Vitra architecture, its daily use, the evolution of the Campus and the biographies of the architects. It is ideally suited as a souvenir, as preparation for a visit, as a Campus guide or simply a fascinating read on some of the most significant architects of our time and their buildings. This new edition shows the new Campus buildings since 2014: the #65533;lvaro-Siza-Promenade, Vitra Slide Tower by Carsten H#65533;ller, Vitra Schaudepot by Herzog & de Meuron and the project 24 Stops by the artist Tobias Rehberger.
