Created by the contemporary furniture company Vitra, this extraordinary museum in Weil am Rhein (actually a suburb of Basel, Switzerland) displays works of design from American Shaker to Viennese Art Nouveau. Best of all, the museum campus includes such singular buildings as an early Frank Gehry, a Zaha Hadid fire station, Buckminster Fuller dome and Jean Prouvé gas station.
