Inspired by the marque's curvaceous supercars, the HENN Architects Porsche Pavilion is architecturally magnificent. Designed for the Autostadt in Wolfsburg, Germany, the pavilion provides visitors the opportunity to experience the history of the Porsche brand.

The dynamic, folding rooftop emulates the bending profile of tidal waves crashing down into the ocean. Its cantilever profile blends seamlessly into its surroundings and visually conceals the entrance to the interior showroom. The curved rooftop also hangs over the surrounding water feature, enhancing the illusion of the tidal wave structure. Passing guests can take a moment to admire the architectural structure on the staircases surrounding the picturesque pond.

The HENN Architects Porsche Pavilion lives up to the brand's exceptional eye for detail and ability to produce elegant yet powerful masterpieces. Stats for Tidal Wave-Inspired Structures Trending: Older & Average
