A car assembly plant in the heart of the city?

A car assembly plant in a city centre was previously inconceivable.

With “Die Gläserne Manufaktur”, Volkswagen proved it was possible. How did it come about? What was the underlying vision that inspired its construction and how were the architects able to turn their audacious ideas into reality? This informative tour provides insights into the building’s architectural concept, its functional and aesthetic aspects as well as the ideas behind it.
