The BMW Welt Architectural concept by COOP HIMMELBAU was opened in October 2007. The reflected buildings captured on that frosty winter afternoon are the BMW Tower and BMW Museum, both Munich landmarks were constructed in the early 1970s. Located near the BMW factory in Munich, this photogenic building houses the delivery centre – if you personally come to pick up your new car:-) – events, exhibitions and shops and is linked to the BMW Museum next door.

Location: Munich, Germany.

    that looks very surreal. it’s like a 3d animation of an architecture design.
    the repeating lines are very nice to look at, same with the reflection as well.
    very nice!

  • Adrian, thank you for the compliment:-) The building is quite amazing and I spent a long time trying to get the right angle including the reflections, etc. without people walking through:-) I’m very pleased you like the results.

    Conveys the (desired, I’m sure) impression of a sleek, perfectly running machine, just like the car! Well done!

  • Mike, thank you! I’m sure the designers and architects were trying to convey exactly that impression. I’m pleased I could capture it somehow. It is well worth a visit if you ever get the chance.
