The pavillon was used by BMW for its exhibition during the 2001 Frankfurt Motor Show. For the cover of the BMW Pavilion, with a surface area of 7190 m², PVC/PES fabric was used for the roof cladding and ETFE-foil for the storefront. The peculiarity of this project, from the view of the structural engineer, is the monoxial-spanned-membrane.
