On the banks of the river Elbe in Hamburg’s HafenCity has arised Hamburg’s new cultural landmark: the Elbphilharmonie. The interplay between the archaic appearance of the former warehouse known as the Kaispeicher A and the bold curve of the dazzling glass corpus is the architectural calling card of the Elbphilharmonie. The building complex will, in addition to three concert halls, encompass a hotel, 45 private apartments, and the publicly accessible Plaza, where old and new conjoin in an exciting synthesis and the visitors are treated to a unique 360° panoramic view of the city from a height of 37 m. The centrepiece of the Elbphilharmonie is also one of the most exciting structural challenges in Europe at the moment: A world-class concert hall at a height of 50 m. with seating for 2,100, which is decoupled from the rest of the building for soundproofing reasons. The Elbphilharmonie is the perfect symbiosis of architecture and music at a unique site within the historic city port.
