in the hafencity quarter of hamburg, germany, international practice gmp architekten will be designing the new ‘elbbrucken underground station’ that will for the time being act as the terminal station for the newly added U4 line. stretching above ground, the rounded reticulated steel girders form a permeated tunnel-like structure extending out towards the river elbe, surrounded by historic bridges and a rapidly developing urban zone. beneath the steel structure a series of glass panels are suspended creating a separate interior glazed skin that controls direct sunlight without detracting from the gridded exterior elements. all level changes and circulation changesare handled entirely in the interior, freeing the immediate site from a clutter of unnecessary excavations or crossing pathways.

  • Yeah looks very “underground” and ties in very well to the fact that “Hamburger Hochbahn” means “Hamburg aerial railway”. o.O
