The concert hall “Elbphilharmonie” in Hamburg is an impressive building. Its trailblazing architecture attracts already, when you’re still miles away. But you’ll have to get very close and take your time to explore its small architectural details, in order to understand, that it’s these details, that create this concert hall from the inside out.
The architectural essence of this concert hall can be found in every single piece, whether it’s a window, a stair case corner or the outer shell.
The City-Hof is a stain of shame. But the way it has been treated for years and how the city of Hamburg is bleeding the City-Hof dry, is also a shame.
When it was built by the architect Klophaus, this building wasn’t ment to look like this: disfigured by gray eternit plates since decades. I’d really like to have a look behind those plates. They say, there’s a beautiful facade hidden.
