Hamburgs new architectural gem!

Elbphilharmonie is a 110metres high building combining tradition and modernity at a very unique location. The building complex accommodates 3 concert halls, 1 hotel, 45 flats and the Plaza and a public square which is elevated thirty seven metres above the Elbe River, along with a 360 degree panoramic view of the city! The acoustically superior concert hall sits at the core 50 metres above the river and aims to become one of the worlds finest music venues. The build has cost a staggering 440million Euros yet more than 77million has come from donations.

The building and its location asks the question, is this just a unique building complex or actually a piece of art? We’ll have to watch this space until completion in 2012 to find out!
