Did you know.... BMW's headquarters are styled after their automobile engines.
Karl Schwanzer, an Austrian architect, created the BMW headquarters in Munich, which took four years to complete. Construction lasted from 1968 to 1972, with the goal of finishing in time for the 1972 Summer Olympics. The building, which is located close to Olympiapark, has served as the BMW headquarters since 1972. The design is inspired by a BMW engine, with four towers signifying four engine cylinders. The four interconnecting towers are hung on top of a single foundation. The building has a total of 22 stories, 18 of which are utilised as office space.
