Porsche Pavilion by Henn Architekten
The Autostadt is a visitor attraction adjacent to the Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg, Germany with a prime focus on automobiles. It features a museum, feature pavilions for the principal automobile brands in the Volkswagen Group and a customer center.
The Porsche Pavilion is the first addition to the theme park since its opening in 2000. It was designed by the German firm Henn Architekten and its curved lines and form are derived from the dynamic flow of driving, encompassing the universal image of the Porsche brand.
From the architect: “‘The building is unique and its construction is extraordinary. This pavilion also has a symbolic and historical dimension, as it hints at the common roots through which Porsche and Volkswagen have been connected from the very beginning and will continue to be connected also in future’, says Matthias Müller, CEO of Porsche AG. ‘As a worldwide leading automobile destination and communication platform for Volkswagen, we provide insights into our brands, values and philosophy for our guests. With the Porsche Pavilion we start a new chapter in the history of the Autostadt’, adds Otto F. Wachs, Director of the Autostadt.”
