Zaha Hadid Architects has won an international competition to design this 40,000m 2Central Building for BMW's new Leipzig plant. The building contains office space flanked by production sites so that semi-finished cars 'float by'on conveyor belts . The internal organisation is 'transparent and flexible', with a generous lobby and courtyards to allow views and bring in daylight.
The practice said the project was a 'unique opportunity to push the boundaries of contemporary office design'. Work will begin on site by January 2003 with completion set for 2004.
