BMW raised this huge skyscraper to house commercial offices in 1973. Devised by K.Schwanzer, it simulates a huge four-cylinder engine. The story is this: After the First World War, Germany was prohibited to manufacture aircraft engines, so started making railway brakes. During the Second World War, BMW vehicles were supplied to the army and, after the defeat, all three German factories and facilities in Munich were destroyed. But during its reconstruction of 1973, BMW has become a pioneer in the automotive industry through the application of modern technology to their vehicles. Nearby is the BMW museum, housing legendary models from the past to the future.
