The VitraHaus invites visitors to explore, define and refine their sense of design. A visit to the VitraHaus is like taking a trip through design history, but it also offers the opportunity to encounter the work of leading contemporary designers. The furnishings and objects from the Vitra Home Collection are arranged in a variety of settings for both living and working: classics by Charles & Ray Eames, George Nelson, Isamu Noguchi, Jean Prouvé and Verner Panton are combined with contemporary designs by Maarten Van Severen, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Antonio Citterio, Hella Jongerius, Jasper Morrison and others.

Indianapolis Airport Terminal, USA – News : HOK
The Colonel H. Weir Cook Terminal, a 1.2 million-square-foot facility, combines pre-9/11 comfort and convenience with post-9/11 security mandates. The design acknowledges that in a global economy international airports are often the traveller’s first and last impression of a metropolitan area. As befits Indianapolis’ “Circle City” moniker, the terminal’s focal point is a 30,000-square-foot piazza – a circular civic plaza beneath a 200-foot diameter skylight with sunshades.
