The architect Prof Wolf D. Prix and his agency, COOP HIMMELB(L)AU, were able to visualize the expectations of BMW In the shape of gigantic cloud developed from a twisted Double Cone of steel and glass, and made accessible to visitors. The roof seems to hover high up since it was constructed to span a space of up to 80 metres in width. It is a giant, whose only visible support is provided by eleven elegant concrete pillars.

The giant vault-like ceiling provides shelter for the BMW Welt facility while incorporating its 6300 square metre surface area into photovoltaic system.

The architecture of the Double Cone adeptly expresses the strength and complexity of this absolutely unrivalled design. No single pane of glass in the facade is identical to another. Every steel frame in the construction is a unique work of art. This challenging vision has been realized with its own unique grandeur.
