Zaha Hadid’s entry for the UK’s Stirling Prize, the BMW Central Building in Leipzig Germany is illustrated here. Hadid outlines the thinking behind the design, “The Central Building is the active nerve- centre or brain of the whole factory complex. All threads of the activities gather together and branch out from here. This planning strategy applies to the cycles and trajectories of the production that traverses the central point - departing and returning again, as well as to the cycles of people".....
