I quite like the density of the developments. I assume there will be a far more lively environment than is the case with supertalls surrounded by swathes of parkland.

Wow, great job Hamburg. Hamburg is a really nice city. I've been 1 time in Hamburg, only on the highway to Denmark.

The last picture in this topic is ugly, the others are nice!

There are. Further renders of the Science Center (click 2 enlarge):

Look at that guy with the bowler hat! Amazing.


What's the Maybach Exelero doing there?



Addition: The article given on that page, offering some deeper information 'bout this project.

Quote:
Hamburg Science Center

The complex, comprising of the Science Center, Aquarium and Science Theatre, is located at the entrance to the Magdeburger harbour and sits at the end point of an urban axis from the inner Alster to the river Elbe. Situated at the waterfront in close proximity to container and cruise ships, the building marks the connection between the harbour and the city.

The Science Center will become a hub for scientific study in Hamburg and help strengthen the city’s educational profile creating a place for the next generation of scientists to study and share knowledge. Not only will the Science Centre be linked to many other institutes in Hamburg but it will also become the generating force for innovative education and be a cultural highlight in itself.

The Science Centre is constructed of 10 modular blocks that connect to form a ring shaped building. This shape and the maritime power and mass of the individual blocks resemble the character of the historical, urban waterfront development. Therefore, the building is a symbol of Hamburg’s economic strength and a representation of the city’s interest in technology and science.

The exhibiton space also works on a modular principle similar to the building. This gives the curators of the space a great deal of freedom and flexibility. A variety of subjects will be able to go on display making the exhibiton centre a stage for not only scientific research but also for all aspects of our modern life.

The Science Center addresses not only environmental issues but also programmatic sustainability.

The function of the ten blocks that make up the building allow for large scale programmatic changes on a daily basis. The central structure accommodates the vertical circulation whereas the blocks on the west and east side are used as exhibition spaces. The curator is able to generate shortcuts, changes or create connections by means of moveable partitions.

With three terraces surrounding the building the Science Centre allows access to the Hamburg city centre as well as to the West and East sides of the Magdeburg harbour. This three way axis will link the various parts of the city and bring new life into the Hafencity. It enables direct interaction between visitors and passers-by functioning as an urban stage. Various events taking place on top of the individual plateaus of the building as well as the restaurants on the terrace of the Belle Etage will stimulate activity in the Hafencity.

Sounds quite promotional though, but also pleasing. Looks like it'd bring up some exciting attraction to the area and will increase the urban feel & activity.
I hope they're able to fulfill their ambitions with this project, Hamburg and the HafenCity need several landmarks like that (such as the Elbphilharmonie of course).

I think the science centre is ugly. Espcecially the concret facade is horrible. They should use glass instead.

Are you sure it's concrete? Thought it'd be glass and the shown facade would be just some sorta placeholder... Pure concrete would look disgusting for sure.

No, I am not sure but it looks like concrete. Just hope I am wrong.

Glass would be terrible! Hamburg doesn't need boring, cheap buildings/skyscrapers made of glass.

In any case, too much use of glass result in a less sustainable building.

That's Ralph Fiennes, in a bad movie.




That said, I really liked the earlier version of the Science Center:
