BMW Welt’s futuristic architecture is one of a kind. A cloud-like impression is created by a double cone supported on just twelve hinged columns, giving visitors the feeling that the building is floating. BMW Welt’s architectural concept combines design and function in equal measure. This can be seen in the filigree steel facade that also helps to control the temperature within BMW Welt.

Solar energy from the roof and facade help to heat the building, while the large wall surfaces provide ventilation. Glass outer panels create a comfortable surface temperature. Vegetation outside the building, especially the greenery planted in close proximity to the building’s natural ventilation elements, helps to trap dust and create a cooling effect. 2,500 tonnes of steel were used in the construction of this unique building. We love it and we hope you do too!
