Dwell traveled to Munich, Germany, to get an up close and personal look at BMW Welt, an undulating, stainless-steel-clad structure designed by Wolf Prix of Coop Himmelb(l)au. It is joined on BMW's campus by a towering "four-cylinder" building and the BMW Museum, its circular antithesis, each created by Karl Schwanzer in the early 1970s. While there we were treated to a sneak peek at BMW's soon-to-be-unveiled sub-brand, BMW i, the company's first foray into the realm of electric vehicles. Check out the slideshow to get a glimpse under the hood of BMW.
