SCHEMI-BIPV-1 trasp

One of the central design ideas was to expand the existing configuration of the BMW Tower and the museum with an additional element so as to create a spatial, ideal, and identity-forming architectural ensemble.  Due to the complex morphology of building the PV needs to follow the customized shape of the roof with a special adjustment of panel rows  that are fit to the surface geometry.
