The new glossy construction resembles a hoisted sail, water wave, iceberg or quartz crystal. It sits on a top of an old warehouse building near the historical Speicherstadt. It was officially inaugurated with concerts on January 11, 2017.
The Elbe Philharmonic Hall doesn't fit the port scenery
The glass facade does not fit the rest of the architecture of the seaport. It is too contemporary. It diverts attention from the historic landmarks and the elegant features that the town offers. The building is structurally at odds with itself and it does not fit in with the picturesque beauty of the town.
It looks like an iceberg or crystal, which are both beautiful
The building reflects the color of the sky. It looks like a gigantic crystal or even an iceberg. Its position in the historic Hamburg seaport makes it a unique monument for the sailors to wish them good luck on the high seas. Ahoy!
