An introduction featuring three critical treatises outlines the historic and urbanistic profile of Hamburg, allowing the reader to reflect on the evolution of the city and at the same time relate it to the contemporary image of the places.
The selection of 75 projects, organised in 5 itineraries, provides 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.
The volume also contains useful information and advice which will make it easier and quicker to get around the city, making it possible to 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.
