The BMW Welt by Coop Himmelb(L)Au will officially open to the public on the weekend of October 20/21, 2007. Visitors from all over the world are invited to experience the exciting new building. As planned the handing over will be on June, 30 2007.
The main element of Coop Himmelb(L)Au is a large permeable hall with a sculptural roof and the double cone which emerges in relation to the existing headquarters complex. The hall is a marketplace for differentiated and changing uses and an unmistakable sign for the BMW Group. The interior topography creates differentiated spatial densities and fluid subspaces. The heart of the building is the “Premiere” vehicle delivery area. Hanging above this space are the customer lounges which allow views through the event space and toward the BMW headquarters.
Architect: Coop Himmelb(L)Au
