IBM Watson IoT Headquarters is a multi-award winner for its iconic design

In 2015, we announced our plans to open a new global headquarters for our IBM Watson IoT business in Munich. Its design, architecture and construction were completed in just one year – an extraordinary achievement.

Today, the IBM Watson IoT HQ is a unique collaborative hub, offering 2,400 square metres of shared laboratories, client experience zones and office space for nearly 1,000 IBM employees. It was designed as a co-creating environment, where customers and IBM staff can come together to transform their operations using a combination of IoT and Watson cognitive technologies.

We are thrilled that this revolutionary space has won recognition through multiple awards:
