GRAFT developed the idea of any horizontal leaf in which protects the landscaping underneath with its organic and natural form. “WES-Landschaftsarchitektur” planned the particular landscape surrounding the roof structure. In the architectural using this image, it was required to produce the greatest achievable lightness: A special interferance principle allows for the roof structure to be attached in just two details. It lays inside the landscape and specifies a clear and protected area. The planning of the structurel framework was done simply by “Schlaich Bergmann und Partner”.

The particular elegant amorphous geometry of the roof top forms an evident connection between top and bottom, among sky and landscaping.
The associated service pavilion meets various functions: the consumer can ask questions concerning his new automobile, purchase accessories or perhaps get information about Autostadt sights and activities.
