The Crystal - London
The Crystal, a sustainable cities initiative by Siemens, is home to the world’s largest exhibition on the future of cities, as well as one of the world’s most sustainable buildings and events venues.
Siemens opened the Crystal in 2012 as a global hub for debate on sustainable living and development. Since opening, over 100,000 people each year have visited the interactive exhibition; thousands of meetings and events have been hosted in our sustainable events venue, and numerous major projects have been undertaken in the Siemens office on-site.
Designed by award-winning architects Wilkinson Eyre, this iconic sustainable building draws inspiration from the many sides of a crystal. The external shape of the building creates unique internal spaces, including an auditorium, conference facilities, meeting rooms and office spaces. With its waterside location on London’s Royal Docks, the Crystal architecture provides a striking contrast to the surrounding skyline, the O₂, Canary Wharf and the Emirates Airline Cable Car that passes by.
