From 2006 to 2013 the International Building Exhibition IBA Hamburg provided a major impetus for innovation in urban development. Overall, around seventy projects were carried out over this period, including residential buildings, pioneering case studies, educational and sports facilities, senior citizens’ centres, local commercial hubs and creative venues, the widely celebrated Energy Bunker, and parks and open spaces. These now define the cityscape in southern Hamburg, the area composed of the long-neglected districts of Wilhelmsburg, Veddel, and Harburg Upriver Port. The IBA Hamburg produced many new solutions and ideas for future construction. It created living space and demonstrated how a twenty-first century metropolis can grow in an environmentally and socially balanced way.
Even after the end of the Building Exhibition, a holistic approach and fresh, groundbreaking ideas for climate-friendly urban construction form the main focus of the planning work carried out by the IBA Hamburg GmbH, which, as an urban project developer, is now participating in the next stage of the city of Hamburg’s evolution.
