Exploring this further with teams at ETH Zurich, they highlighted conditions under which an ideal urban development project could flourish.
The book, published by Walther Koenig, aims to positively contribute to the debate on urban development, providing a manifesto for a relational, collective and diverse future for our cities.
The project was presented to the public at Hamburg City Hall on the 8 February in an event that was attended by the Mayor of Hamburg and other key representatives.
At 230 metres Elbtower will become the tallest building in Hamburg, acting as both a counterpoint to the Elbphilharmonie and an entrance marker on the eastern edge of Hafencity.
The conclusions reached through this exercise demonstrate how future large-scale developments elsewhere could have a more positive urban impact, both at the scale of the neighbourhood and the wider metropolis.
The ceremony comes only days after DCAB was announced as the winner of the Elbtower competition to design a further high-rise building in the city, to be located four kilometres upstream from the Empire Riverside Hotel.Image © Empire Riverside Hotel This new publication is the outcome of an 18-month dialogue between David Chipperfield and Simon Kretz as part of the Rolex Mentor & Protégé programme.The collaboration led to a theoretical exercise examining the forces that influence the shape of cities, using the Bishopsgate goods yard site in East London as a case study.The new address is: No.25 Jian Guo Zhong Road # 9508, 200025 Shanghai, China Giuseppe Sirica and Giuseppe Zampieri from DCA Milan were invited to deliver the final lesson of the year for the inaugural edition of the Masters programme Design and Technology for Fashion Communication at Fashion Research Italy, a non-profit foundation established in 2015 as a centre of excellence for the Italian fashion industry.Twenty students were selected for the talk entitled , a presentation of the projects developed by the Milan office for various fashion brands over the last ten years.During their tour through Ark Des, Christoph Felger, partner and design director of DCA Berlin, presented to the royal couple the office’s proposal for the future Nobel Centre and explained the design and concept behind the building.In 2014, DCA Berlin won the competition for the design of the Nobel Center, , which will give the Nobel Prize a home for the first time in its history.The design approach focuses on the careful treatment of the existing material fabric and adaption to modern museum standards.The building has been stripped down to its structure and will now be painstaking put back together to look and feel untouched. Following an international competition David Chipperfield Architects Berlin and SIGNA Prime Selection AG have been selected to develop a new office and commercial building in the Hafencity district of Hamburg.will display a selection of 15 current and recent projects by the practice at varying stages in their development, exposing the range of activities that take place in an architecture studio today.For further information please contact [email protected] [email protected] the setting for a new furniture feature by photographer Gerhardt Kellerman and set designers Martina Lucatelli and Leadro Favarolo.
