Adi Dassler Brand Center (ADBC)
A shimmering black crystal opposes the passing of time
Glassolutions supplied the glass façade constituting the black monolith of the Adi Dassler Brand Center (ADBC), the new Adidas central building. The structure named “Black Crystal” expresses the sense of time: timeless from the outside and the time in transition from the inside.
''The “Black Crystal” was intended to be a sharp-edged, plane and transparent large-scale form without expansion joints or sections."
