Hamburg Science Center 2-4

Hamburg Science Center 1-2

The building of 23,000 m2 will comprise of a Science Centre, aquarium, theatre, offices, laboratories and commercial and retail facilities and is located at the eastern edge of Hafencity, Hamburg’s ambitious harbor redevelopment.

The Science Centre is constructed of ten modular blocks that connect to form a ring shaped building. This concept allows for maximum flexibility for exhibitions. Visitors will start their visit at the so called “base station” just under the top of the building, cross over through the exhibition halls and descend in the modular blocks through the various exhibited scientific subjects, such as “the beginning of life” or “everything flows”. Approx. 8,500 m2 of the building is located underground with a large part of this space being taken up by the aquarium, providing a zoological tour from Hamburg to the Red Sea.

With terraces on various levels of the building the Science Centre allows panoramic views of Hamburg city centre as well as to the West and East sides of the Magdeburg harbor.

By providing rentable office and laboratory spaces the building will act as a hub for various scientific institutions in Hamburg. Cultural Senator of Hamburg Prof. Dr. Karin von Welck explained that: “The new Science Center will be established as an interdisciplinary meeting place for HafenCity Hamburg, an innovative space for art, culture and science.”

As a Science Centre the building leads by example addressing the issue of sustainability not only in its flexible approach to programming and function but also by incorporating the latest environmental technologies.

Speaking at the project launch yesterday Rem Koolhaas said ”this building is supposed to reflect Hamburg’s serious ambitions for the development of the former port area”. OMA’s Science Centre is the latest in a series of buildings commissioned by Hamburg Hafencity GmbH as part of a large scale regeneration programme of the area, which stretches some 155 hectares between city centre and the river Elbe. The design is a further development of the winning scheme designed by OMA in 2004.

    mmmm…. pero OMA no tení­a ya dos edificios en el hafencity de hamburgo??
    dos medias naranjas al final de uno de los muelles….
    en este link ya han hecho un cambio y en vez de dos medias naranjas con agujeritos, solo queda una….pero este ultimo cambio parece un poco radikal….

    no será que le da envidia lo bonito y grande que va a ser el de Herzog y de Meuron y han decidido cambiarlo para que se vea más? O es un proyecto aparte del otro para OMAconquistar el nuevo hafencity?
    me sigue pareciendo mas interesante el de Herzog y de Meuron, por cierto, en la pagina puedes manejar una webcam y moverte en directo por las obras de la Filarmónica….
