Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg

Posted by Heinz (Hamm, Germany) on 14 May 2013 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Seit April 2007 ein im Bau befindliches Konzerthau in der Hafen-City in Hamburg. Veranschlagt waren 77 Millionen Euro. Die Eröffnung soll 2017
erfolgen. Bis da hin sind es 789 Millionen Euro.
So gehen die Politiker mit unseren Steuergeldern um.

Hallo Heinz, und ich kann nicht sagen, dass ich diese moderne oder fast abstrakte Bauweise fuer ein Konzertgebaeude gut finde - Ich meine, dass auch heute noch kOnzerte meist klassische Musik beinhalten - sicher auch moderne oder viell. ein Rock Konzert - aber ein ausgewogeneres Bauwerk wuerde mir mehr zusagen. (jedem das seine) - Wenn ich mir dann noch die Kosten ansehe - haette ich als Steuerzahler die Nase voll !!!!!!!!!!!
Aber ein gutes Bild, Heinz ..... schoenen Abend Monika

Fascinating architecture which seems to emulate the movement of waves.

ein imposantes vorhaben und sicher nicht unumstritten - nicht nur wegen des exorbitanten preises!
diese "magische" verteuerung (um's zehnfache!!!) erinnert mich sehr an das neue flughafenterminal in wien oder an das (neue) schottische parlament in edinburgh ... es scheint, als könnten die verantwortlichen überall gleich "gut" rechnen ;-)

@franz: Franz, Überall das gleiche. Bei uns noch der neue Flughafen in Berlin und der Bahnhof in Stuttgart. Aber da geht es in die Milliarden.

The architecture is really lovely - the shape reminds me of the waves.

Das ist wirklich ein beeindruckendes Gebäude. Die Architektur ist großartig ... Und mit Steuern ist es immer so, hier geben sie das Geld an andere Länder und tun nichts für das Land ;-( ( Schönes Foto Heinz !!!

It's a concert hall?
The acoustics must be pretty good in there.

@Curly: Das soll erst noch ein Konzerthaus werden.

A colossal miscalculation somewhere . . and you can be sure no-one will be responsible for it . . I thought it only happened here !

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

I get the feeling that we are all the same with money, if it's too large to visualise then it seems to have less value to us. A fascinating construction

stunning architecture - It is a similar story around the world for any construction works - pick an arbitrary number and multiply by 10 for each and every year the project over runs.

A beautiful building, I love the architecture. The photo is gorgeous with a beautiful light. Unfortunately as all over the world the politicians have played with taxpayer money.
Have a good day.
