Vitra Conference Pavilion / Tadao Ando



Vitra Converence Pavilion
Architect: Tadao Ando

The conference pavilion for the Vitra Campus is Tadao Ando's first building outside Japan and was completed in 1993. The main part of this minimalist building is below ground level. Tadao Ando wanted to integrate his pavilion harmoniously into the cherry tree meadow, which had grown for decades, with the aim of cutting as few trees as possible. To do this, he took aerial photographs and turned the building plan around so that only 3 trees had to be pruned at the end. An impressive example of cautious architecture in harmony with nature.
