The Elbphilharmonie by Herzog and de Meuron on the Kaispeicher in the midst of
’s HafenCity marks
a location that was known to the public but not really accessible. In the
future it will become a new center of social, cultural and daily life not only
for the people of Hamburg but for visitors from
all over the world. Hamburg
The Kaispeicher A was still in use as a warehouse until the end of the last century. This solid and weighty construction will now be put to new use: it will support the Philharmonic. It will now bear on top the load that it once carried within its walls.
