This outstanding architectural project first came to light back in 2014 as BIG was declared the winner of a competition to extend the Audemars Piguet’s landmark. As previously mentioned, the spiraling structure gently rises out of the ground and highlights floor-to-ceiling windows that offer sweeping views over the valley in the Jura mountains.

Bjarke Ingels Group worked in collaboration with CCHE and Audemars Piguet to integrate the remarkable building with the surrounding landscape, thus providing the inner layout of the museum. This new design also resembles the springs of a timepiece as Bjarke Ingles complements, “watchmaking like architecture is the art and science of imbuing metals and minerals with energy, movement, intelligence and measure to bring them to life in the form of telling time.”

“We wanted visitors to experience our heritage, savoir-faire, cultural origins and openness to the world in a building that would reflect both our rootedness and forward-thinking spirit, but, before all, we wanted to pay tribute to the watchmakers and craftspeople who have made what Audemars Piguet is today, generation after generation.” – Jasmine Audemars, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors
