About the Crystal
One of the world's most sustainable buildings
The Crystal is home to the world’s largest exhibition on the future of cities, the world’s most sustainable events venue, and office space for global engineering powerhouse Siemens.
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.
The Crystal sets the benchmark for sustainable building design. It is the only building in the world to achieve the highest certification in both the BREEAM and LEED schemes, as well as many other accreditations. Siemens technologies throughout the building ensure the highest energy efficiency and CO2 standards are met.
