BMW Welt event, exhibition and automobile delivery centre by Coop Himmelb(l)au, Wolf D Prix, We Dreibholz & Partner ZT
Situated adjacent to BMW’s Munich plant and museum, as well as Gunther Behnisch and Frei Otto’s Olympic Park, the BMW Welt building is central to the firm’s vehicle delivery service. On delivery day, a vehicle is transported from the high-rise storage unit with a capacity for 250 cars in a glass elevator to a rotating platform, from which the
customer drives their new car out of the building via an
expansive, curving ramp – the backbone of the glass and steel building.
