In the midst of Gehry's sculptural Vitra Design Museum and Herzog & de Meuron's VitraHaus is Tadao Ando's demure Conference Pavilion, completed in 1993. Ando designed the path that leads to the structure as a single-file lane that doesn't lead directly to the building but rather on a bit of a roundabout route that lets you enjoy the Balancing Tools sculpture by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen and views of other structures on the campus before guiding you around the concrete wall that blocks the building entrance from view.
