Adjacent to Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet’s original workshop from 1875, Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has completed a contemporary museum for the luxury watchmakers. The spiral building emerges from the valley floor of the Vallée de Joux in Switzerland as a modern complement to the historic building. Its walls of structural curved glass support a steel roof planted with grass to regulate the temperature while a brass mesh filters light. Visitors begin in the original building and continue in a clockwise direction like the spring of a timepiece though a collection of 300 watches. At the core of the spiral, the brand’s most complicated timepiece, the Universelle, is displayed in a glass sphere and is surrounded by eight other significant watches, reminiscent of a solar system orbiting the sun. Also in the coil are two ateliers showcasing the company’s intricate eight-month process of assembling 648 pieces. The Atelier Audemars Piguet Museum has opened on June 25, 2020.
