Inspirered by the waves that surround it, the breathtaking glass structure will be the new Elbe Philharmonic Hall. The project will be due for 2010. It will then house one of the world’s finest concert halls and will put Hamburg on the map, according to the swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron. Today, three years before the Hall is due to open, great animations give you an idea of just what it will look like. It will contain a 2150 seat concert hall, a 550 seat chamber music hall, a 200-room luxury hotel, a wellness area, a nightclub and 21 luxury apartments.
