This 8,000 sq. ft. building owns the world’s biggest Vitra Furniture Collection yet.
In 1989, Frank Ghery’s Vitra Design Museum became the gatehouse for the Vitra factory and collection exhibits. This 8,000 sq. ft. building owns the world’s biggest Vitra Furniture Collection.
As commonly seen with Ghery’s architectural designs, the Vitra Gallery follows the deconstructive sculptural concept. However, in this specific building we can see how he incorporates the interior materiality with the exterior white plaster and titanium alloy.
The shape of the building is a mix between towers, ramps, cubes, and volumes that come together to determine:
- Light access inside the interior spaces
- Building program.
