BMW FIZ Future
The winning entry of the multistage international competition FIZ Future looks at the design of the future masterplan and extension of the BMW Research and Innovation Centre (FIZ). People working in a huge variety of specialist fields will need to meet and pool their thoughts to create the innovations of tomorrow. A central axis accelerates movement and provides an enhanced spatial experience to encourage a greater number of such encounters. All cultures of expertise in automobile construction and mobility are always on view. Towards the edges of the campus, this perception reduces and becomes more focused to allow the various specialist fields and disciplines to further develop their ideas. This effect also promotes integration with the surrounding urban quarters. Here, the design of the new BMW FIZ opens up to its neighbours with a park, cafés, leisure and sports facilities as well as a civic centre.
