Weil am Rhein, Germany; Cradle of Deconstructivism

To say it clear. Weil am Rhein is an ugly city. Suburb of Basle and a better harbour area of this agglomeration at the border of Germany, France and Switzerland. There is no reason to open a thread for.

How wrong!

The Vitra Design museum and the neighbouring factory building are the first deconstructivism buildings of Frank Gehry in the entire world.

A few months ago I transformed the ordinary tower of the Freiburg central station into a false Gehry by taking a picture of its reflection in a neighbour cladding. This time I used a streamline camper to transform a Gehry into an ordinary building and failed.

Some more pictures of the museum, but especially from the factory Gehry built in Weil. The chairs seen in the pictures are produced in that company.

But it was not only Frank Gehry who found his chance for a complete new design in Weil am Rhein, also the first proposal of Zaha Hadid who was ever built one can find in that factory at Weil am Rhein: her fire station. So keep curious.

there's beauty in the design...
it can simulate an abstract painting.

They build a new look-out on the Vitra campus right now. To climb up one has to use stairs downwards one can use a slide as well. The building is called Vitra Slide Tower and is designed by Carsten Höller. The famous fire station of Zaha Hadid will become a permanent access for the public. Now the building is still inside of the production plant and only visible by guided tours. This will change at June 19th. Then they will open a panoramic walkway designed by Alvaro Siza.

I prefer the house above..you can save energy because of the natural light coming from the outside.

The look-out is finished now. To use the slide one should not forget to catch a sliding bag at the foot of the tower.

Aviously the view on the buildings is not so good, only the vitra shop one can see out of a new perspective.

They opened the campus so that there are more buildings visible without fences or waiting for a guided tour. The smallest one is Diogene a little building of 6 square meters designed by Renzo Piano.

Hadids fire station might have been open for a few days. Now there are new temporary fences which prevent access to the interesting side of the facade. But that's good news since this fence is necessary to protect the newest construction side where they built an addition for the Vitra Design Museum designed by Herzog DeMeuron. Unfortunately I didn't find any renderings of the project yet.
