BMW, Leipzig - Germany


Mit seiner baulichen Struktur und Architektur setzt BMW Leipzig neue Maßstäbe: Karosseriebau, Lackiererei und Montage gruppieren sich unter einem Dach sternförmig um ein Zentralgebäude. Für die Gestaltung des Zentralgebäudes wurde die Stararchitektin Zaha Hadid beauftragt.



BMW Leipzig defines a new benchmark in structural design: with chassis construction, paint shop and end assembly coming together under one roof, wrapped around a central building. The contract for designing the central building was awarded to star architect Zaha Hadid. Under a clear and very specific building brief, the three core operations were to be closely linked for the first time in the history of automotive production. As a result, the structure forms a hub of communication for the entire automobile plant and gives it an architectural identity of its own.
