Full Description

This publication is the second edition of this contemporary guide to the architecture of Hamburg, Germany’s second largest city and one of its most fascinating destinations.

The guide’s introduction featuring three critical treatises outlines the historic and urbanistic profile of the city. The selection of 74 projects, organised in 5 itineraries, provides a full-immersion in architecture, allowing the reader to dwell on the functional, typological and compositive aspects of the buildings, which are rendered even more legible by images and technical drawings that supplement the descriptions. This volume also contains useful information and advice, making it easier and quicker for readers to get around the city and truly capture the essence of the place even in a short visit.

This is more than simply an architecture guide: it is also and above all an invitation to travel.
