January 31, 2014
REX is pleased to announce that we have won the international competition to expand the Mercedes-Benz World in Stuttgart Germany, including design of the new Mercedes-Benz Future Center—a showcase of the brand’s near and far future visions. The invited competition—launched in the summer of 2012—initially included 8 firms from around the world. In early 2013, the 18-member jury invited 3 firms to revise and optimize their proposals, an effort concluding with REX’s selection on 31 January 2014. The Mercedes-Benz World, opened on May 19, 2006, currently consists of the Mercedes-Benz Museum (displaying the brand’s past) and the Mercedes-Benz Center (displaying the brand’s present). With the inclusion of REX’s design for the Mercedes-Benz Future Center and other campus facilities, the Mercedes-Benz World will form a global epicenter for experiencing the past, present, and future of the brand, the automobile, and mobility in general.
