I wonder who the SAAB Brand Center will choose to design the building. Will there even be a purpose-built building for it?

To further re-enforce GM's commitment to SAAB's Scandinavian design ethic, it'd be nice if they chose a Scandanavian architect to design the building.

I was thinking Rem Koolhaas but just learned that he's Dutch, not Scandinavian (no offense to anyone for my American ignorance).

I'm sure there are some very capable architects in the area who can lend the building a definite SAAB-like look.

Given the current state of Saab, the process would go like this.

1- Pick a building platform from the current GM approved design manual.
2- Hire a German architect
3- Design and build it in Germany
4- Ship it to Sweden and drop it in place, "Look, the GM Europe Design Center!"

5- bonus step, buy an old Subaru building and a Oldsmobile building in the US, slap new signs on them and call them "Saab Design Centers".
