The BMW headquarters is designed like their car engines


The BMW headquarters in Munich was designed by Austrian architect Karl Schwanzer and took four years to build.

Construction work took place from 1968 to 1972 with the aim of being finished in time for the 1972 Summer Olympics.

The building is situated next to Olympiapark, and it has been the BMW headquarters since 1972.

The design is based on a BMW engine, with four towers representing four cylinders of an engine.

BMW denies that it is ‘shifting’ production to China. It announced back in 2019 that it would make an electrified 4th generation MINI with its Chinese Joint-Venture (JV) partner Great Wall from 2024 (which will be exported, including to Britain). That distinction may be rather lost on those who see MINI EV production ending in the UK and starting in China.

As a result, remaining MINI production at Oxford will be entirely based on petrol internal combustion engines (ICEs). These have a time limited life in European markets. In the UK a ban on ICEs comes into place in 2030. The situation at the Oxford plant reflects the bumpy road faced so far for EV production in the UK.
