Built to shape tomorrow: An international icon celebrates its 50th birthday. Karl Schwanzer's BMW Headquarters as symbol for a new era. Spectacular performance by US vertical dancers BANDALOOP.
Between 1970 and 1972, a timeless icon with global appeal was created in Munich in just 26 months. 3.5 million working hours on the construction site. 500 builders and 200 architects, engineers, and draftsmen. Over 3,000 façade elements manufactured for the first time in Europe using the Japanese cast aluminium process. At the time, employees from twelve nations built the BMW landmark.
