The architect designer of the building was Zaha Hadid and it is a representation of radical as well as innovative interpretation of the open landscape of office. the design of the building is a facilitator of innovative interpretation a landscape of open office that is responsible for the delivery of a higher level of engaging experience in as far as connectivity in addition to transparency are concerned the context of a demanding functionality. The objective of the client was the translation of the industrial architecture to a concept of aesthetics in an attempt to comply on an equal scale with the representational as well as functional requirements. In the zone of transition between the halls of manufacturing and the public place, the function of Central building is to serve the purpose of a mediator with an impression of a positive impact that is permanent in consideration of the beholders eye in a way that is restrained in a semiotic manner.
The “BMW Central Building, Plant Leipzig” happens to be a lively nerve centre or rather the brain with respect to the entire complex of the factory. The entire existing threads in consideration of the activities of the building collect at the same point then they divert away from this point. The strategies of planning that are applicable in this situation relates to the trajectories as well as the cycles of the people. This implies to the workers as well as the visitors. This was in addition to the cycles as well as the progress with regard to production line that traverses the focal point with a departure and consequent returning(1).
The most significant characteristic relates to the extent of transparency that is responsible for the facilitation of an easier form of communication as well as organization. One of the most notable signature elements are characterized by the galleries whose length is 6000 meters that facilitates the transportation of the body-in-white. The galleries can be clearly seen from the exterior to facilitate the monitoring of the processes of production that are in progress.
The building as designed by Zaha Hadid who is a notable architect based in London has so far been a beneficiary of a number of awards such as the Deutsche Architekturpreis of 2005, the Leipzig Architekturpreis of 2005, the “Deutsche Architekturpreis Baton” of 2005 as well as Best-Office-Award of 2006(2). The intension of the awards is the provision of recognition of the courage that is associated with the customers who are in a position of contracting with the architects in an effort of creating buildings as well spaces that are innovative.
The notion that is derived from the “Central Building of BMW that is in Leipzig” is associated with an up to date manufacturing that is automated. With the connection of a variety of the buildings of auto assembly that are threaded all the way through accompanied with the actual lines of production. The nerve centre is a reflection of the streaming ideas, the people in Addition to the rest of the components in consideration of the complex of BMW. The comments of Zaha Hadid relates to a final experimentation of the architecture that she inherently posses in consideration of a magnificent building that is in operation. the building has been organized in a manner that there is an exploitation of the sequence that is so obvious in consideration of the front to the back in consideration of phasing of the busy as well asthe public to withdrawn as well as quite activities. The frontage has enveloped has pulled in beneath the diagonally top floor that is in a projection.
The integration of the workers that is closed is enhanced by the entire transparency of interior organization. The functions have been mixed in a manner that traditional organization of the groups of status has been avoided making it less conducive for the workplace at the current time. A complete sequence of the functions of engineering as well as administration are situated in the context of trajectory of the workforce of the manual capacity arriving for work. The functions of white color are situated on the ground floor as well as the first floor.
the factory plan of the BMW before the design in addition to the construction of central building was there in the form of three buildings that were disconnecting that were all responsible for the a very vital part of the production of the series vehicles of BMW 3. The three buildings of production had a design that was aimed at housing the real estate of BMW in addition to the facility responsible for the management group in a separate manner with the accommodation of raw automobile bodies’ fabrication. The competition aimed at designing a building that was centralized to serve as the connection of the three buildings in a physical manner. There was also a requirement of accommodating the needs spaces of the administration as well as the employees(3).
The application of the idea of Hadid was in respect to connectivity in addition to utilization in informing all the aspects in as far as the building was concerned. The building plays the role of connection for the steps in the process of the assembly in addition to the employees. the design of the building is in the form of a sequence of the levels as well as the spaces that are overlapping in addition to interconnecting with the idea that was responsible for informing aimed at blurring all the separations in the midst of a solitary section with respect to the complex to th other in addition to the creation of the level ground in consideration of the employees of the two categories of blue as well as the white collar, the visitors as well as the cars. According to Zaha Hadid, "The Central Building bundles and distributes all the essential movements of the plant." the idea that is related to convergence with respect to the entire flow of communication in this building has likewise been expressed in as far as the hall design is concerned which resembles the building "gravitational field".(4)
The enterprise focal point that is vibrant has been made evident in a visual manner in the vibrant spatial system that has been proposed which encompasses the entire front in the northern part with respect to the factory with the articulation of the middle building which serves as the confluence point in addition to the culmination of a variety of the flows that are converging. It appears that the entire vastness of this face of the building has an orientation as well as an animation of the force field that emanates from central building. The entire movements that converge to this site are funned in the course of the compression chamber that has been squeezed in the midst of the three major segments that are responsible for production namely the “Body in White, the Paint Shop as well as Assembly”.
Zaha Hadid was an architectural designer who was based in London. The work of this designner covered the entire fields that are related with design in the range of the urban scale to the extent of the products the interiors as well as the furniture. of central importance to the concerns ate associated with some engagements on a simultaneous manner in practice, the field of teaching as well as research inconsideration of the quest to a commitment that is uncompromising in as far as modernism is concerned. The work that has been build by Zaha Hadid has resulted to her gain of a high level of academic as well as public acclaim and therefore if she wanted to rebuild chaotic Athens, Greece based on that principal then the reaction of the people in Athens would be favorable in as far as this move is concerned. most of the people have greatly adored the work of Zaha Hadid and the move of the reconstruction of the chaotic Athens, Greece uis considered a positive one that is consequential to the modernization of the place.
The new design by Zaha Hadid was chosen by the jury of BMW from a range of choice of 25 architects on an international standard in consideration of the ultimate piece of the plant of the BMW that is in Leipzig in Germany. with no actual model of the design of the architect, the centrl building by Zaha Hadid may be only taken in relation to monumental as well as revolutionary past industrial design such as the “Fiat Lingotto Factory of G. Matte Truco in addition to AEG Turbine Factory that is in Berlin of Peter Behren's” the others such as the designer of “Dongdaemun Design Plaza in addition to Park in Seoul in South Korea. all these are thr prof of the competency of Zaha Hadid in the field of architecture.
The building of BMW Central encompasses 270,000 feet squared that is equivalent to 25,000 square meters foot facility which comprises only 250,000 feet squared that is equivalent to 23,000 meter squared of 540 acre of the campus. The building offers services to an estimated 5,500 employees, as it also serves as one of the largest part of significant piece of factory due to its connections to the three sheds that are responsible for production.
Zaha Hadid has been a winner of numerous competitions on an international standard, and has been influential as well as groundbreaking on a theoretical sense. Most of the winning designs of Zaha Hadid were in the first place never built a good example being the Peak Club that is based in Hong Kong in the year 1998 in addition to the “Cardiff Bay Opera House” that is based in Wales in the year 1994. Zaha Hadid gained a victory in design of international competition at the time of the design of the master plan of the Singapore's one-north(5).
In the year 2005, the design Hadid was victorious in the context of the competition of the innovative casino in the city of Basel that is based in Switzerland. In the year 2004, Hadid was lucky to be the foremost woman beneficiary of “Pritzker Architecture Prize” that is an equivalent of a Nobel Prize in architecture. Beforehand, she had received an award of CBE due to the services that she had rendered to architecture. She happens to be a member in the board of editorial in Encyclopædia Britannica. In the year 2006, Hadid received some honors with a presentation and the spanning her complete work at the Museum of Guggenhei that is based in the New York. In the same year she as well got Honorary Degree of Beirut American University.
