Hamburg - The Dockland on the River Elbe

The Dockland Office Building - Hamburg, Germany.


Probably one of the most interesting contemporary office building in Europe, this building sits directly on the river Elbe in Hamburg’s harbor. They say it resembles the bow of a huge ship when seen on its long side.


The architectural firm of Bothe, Richter and Teherani has planted their futuristic construction right next door to Hamburg’s fish market as well as the new, classy waterfront neighborhood that includes restaurants, bars, cafes and clubs.


Since the Dockland office building sits mostly on the water, the land had to be reclaimed on a grand scale, which meant a lot of soil needed to be shifted around.


Not really my favorite area to be walking around by myself at this time of the day, as it was a long and rather dark walk from the closest station. Amazingly enough, I came back to this site three times in two days, if only to convince myself that I needed this shot.
