Fire station inside Vitra Campus
Architect : Zaha Hadid
1993
•
The Vitra Campus is a vast complex located in Weil am Rhein, close to Basel, (a point on the map of Europe where three countries converge : Switzerland, France and Germany)
The campus includes factories, showrooms, conference pavillons and the Vitra Design Museum. 
In 1981 a fire caused by a volt of lightening burned more than half the campus in a single night.
After this terrible destruction Vitra commissioned the replacement structures by renowned architects from around the world: buildings by Frank Gehry, Tadao Ando, Alvaro Siza, Renzo Piano, SANAA, Herzog&DeMeuron, Jean Prouvé, and several other notable designers within an area of few square meters. 
Vitra was determined to prevent a similar disaster from destroying its new campus, so Zaha Hadid was tasked to design a fire station inside the Campus.

I love a good bazaar 😍 Krujë’s Old Bazaar, or ‘Pazari i Vjeter’ is a must visit if you’re in the north of Albania. Krujë (also written ‘Kruja’) is a small town that’s a great stop off on the way from Albania to Montenegro, especially if you’re driving from Tirana.
✨
The bazaar in Krujë is one of the oldest in Albania and is located not far from Krujë Castle, an important location in Albanian history. Krujë is particularly famous for being the location of the castle, which was a stronghold of Albania and where the Albanian hero/warrior Skanderbeg started his rebellion against the Ottomans after deserting the Ottoman army with his men. The castle was built in the 5th-6th centuries and offers stunning views over the town! The bazaar has been operating in Krujë for the past 400 years and is a beautiful place with lots of homemade wares and other souvenirs. The cobbled streets make you feel like you are a few centuries back and definitely not in the 21st century 😁
✨
I absolutely loved the colours in the bazaar and took way too many photos 🤪 the bazaar was restored in 2015 after almost disappearing in the late 20th century during the Communist regime, so it’s amazing to see the bazaar flourishing once again.
✨
Have you been to a bazaar or souk? What sort of souvenirs do you like to buy when abroad?
