The newest completed building on campus is the VitraHaus, designed by Basel-based firm Herzog & de Meuron in 2010. The structure features seven balancing longhouses, and its design took the world by storm when first presented and then completed. The entire building is made of poured-in-place concrete and covered with a gray plaster on top and boasts local fir siding at its base. (Check back soon for a post highlighting the VitraHaus.)
