He Flew Ahead

In the 1960s and 1970s the Austrian architect Karl Schwanzer was an international phenomenon. His best-known work is his innovative design for the BMW headquarters in Munich, playfully known as the “Four-Cylinder”. A wonderful selection of historical images and a series of dramatized scenes place Schwanzer in his time, an optimistic period of economic progress. Friends, fellow architects and clients tell their stories in this informative and broad portrait of the man. Schwanzer, an architect with an unprecedented oeuvre of more than 600 buildings, had a keen sense of the times in which he lived. He was a dynamic personality, until his untimely death at the age of 57.
