The Vitra company has been inviting renowned architects to build on their campus in Germany since a fire destroyed most of the original factory buildings. They gave architects like Frank Gehry and Zaha Hadid their first large commissions. The campus is full of great design, fantastic furniture, and a pretty great gift shop in the Herzog & de Meuron building.
