The 30,000 square meters facility employs more than 400 people from over 20 countries.
The Design Center coordinates and directs the activities of the different Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad, Tokyo, Como, and develops the design of the Group’s production models.
The shape of the building resembles an open hand, in which each element has a different function: design, CAD drafting, model making, prototyping and presentation of full size car models.
The doubly curved roof is made of segments consisting of patches cut from a toroidal surface.
In a special area, a controllable, semi-transparent light wing ceiling allows the presentation of new vehicles under simulated daylight conditions.
