Hamburg is growing! A large number of current building projects are evidence of the city’s present dynamism, and it has also become a forum for internationally acclaimed architectural offices, including gmp, Rem Koolhaas, Herzog & de Meuron and Richard Meier. In text and pictures, this guide to the architecture of Hamburg presents 100 outstanding buildings and urban planning developments of the last five years and also takes a look ahead to the near future. Besides prominent projects such as HafenCity or the Elbe Philharmonic, the guide also covers many smaller, as yet unknown or controversial designs from all seven city districts. Emphasis is not only placed on innovative new buildings, but also on the conversion and restoration of existing property. Its convenient format (DIN A7), maps and information on how to reach the objects by public transport make this book into a practical companion for any journey of discovery in the changing city.
