The winning scheme is BMW Welt, Germany by Coop Himmelb(l)au, Austria.
Deeply indebted to Le Corbusier’s enquiring mind and dedication to experimental culture, Wolf D. Prix pursues new meanings and forms in architecture. The great roof resting on the solid cone with cantilevered form contains the real meaning of this project. The roof emphasises the hybrid multi-functional activity zones.
