Seismograph City – sustainable strategies in architecture and urban design
This exhibition and catalogue present a diverse spectrum of buildings in various stages of development and completion as well as visionary designs which address sustainable strategies in the context of current architectural and urban developments worldwide. Central is the city of Hamburg, which due to its visions for sustainable architecture and urban design, has been awarded the title “European Green Capital 2011”. The exchange of experience between countries and continents plays a significant role in the development of common sustainable strategies. The importance of maintaining dialogue between cities is therefore reflected in the exhibition and catalogue.
The individual sections are organised according to the following themes: OnShore – new buildings, ReStore – conversions, NetWork – infrastructure, ShoreUp – flood protection/building near water, ShoreDistrict – coastal town development, Accumulate – energy, and Cross the Border – Visions. These provide an exciting insight (not overview) into current planning in the city of Hamburg, as well as a fascinating and rather surprising collection of projects, designs and visions which excite our imaginations, give us strength, motivation and which hopefully inspire us to further examine themes of sustainability.
