Mercedes-Benz,BMW and Porsche , architectural statement.

Recently I had the occasion to visit three new museums in southern Germany.

The museums show the history of three car manufacturers in Germany, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and BMW.
The design of the three museums reflects current architectural trends.
It will be interesting to trace the sources of their inspiration…. I’ll introduce you my thoughts,  in future posts.


My younger son who accompanied me , is a big fond of cars
and recently showing troubling signs that he is also interested in architecture…..

Here is his reasoned summary that sums up the visit in the three museums,

Mercedes-Benz museum exterior transmit power, but the cars Display is less clear”.

Museum BMW is a box of surprises…. From the outside it looks like an old-fashioned office building, and inside display is a sequence of Surprising spaces” …. 

Porsche Museum is a contemporary structure,Its interior is designed in a manner which allows orienting. It is an experiential and fun space”.
