People in Hamburg can be extremely conservative, so you may be right. On the other hand, the area where this is planned is sparsely developed until now with almost no people living there. Only a rail line and an autobahn and a bit habour-related stuff. So chances are not too bad, I hope. I definitely hope!!

i have to agree. hamburg needs to step it up a notch and develop an internationally recognized presence. germany's second city should stand out ... people over on this side of the pond have basically no conception of hamburg whatsoever. which is a shame, it's a fantastic city. frankfurt should not solely have german skyscrapers on lock-down. although high-rise construction may not be desirable in the traditional city center, doing so in a former docklands area is absolutely beneficial.

With regard to the proposals, i like the buildings in the murphy/jahn but feel that the site plan of the second proposal is better from an urbanistic standpoint. fuse the two and you would have a weiner (pun )

I have to say that I didn't like any of the proposals.

The Murphy/Jahn project is my favourite, the talls are very ingenious

not again a pyramid! it's so unimaginative.

the height is great though. I prefer the lohan-anderson design. looks like a nicer (though smaller) version of canary wharf.

The Studio Gan design is cool. Should be great if Hamburg should build such real skyscrapers. As Germanys 2nd city they deserve it.

This is fantastic! Hopefully they won't make the mistake that is so common: Reserve to much land to one architect, and make it dull and repetative..

Great project! The "pyramide" project is for sure the most beautiful of the five.

Very good work from Hamburg, shows amazing ambitions for the city!
Though I'm not quite sure about this pyramid, even if it's tall and I like pyramids, this one doesn't seem to work for me.
Anyway, this is a winning situation for Hamburg, no matter which plans wins

I think it is great if my cith (Chicago) was so highly associated with such great projects. Maybe Hamburg would like to reply and give Chicago a great German style residential architecture that I am so fond of.

Pretty cool designs. Hamburg already has some impressive low and mid-rise architecture. Definitly one of my favorite German cities.

Can't believe people can not prefer the Murphy/Jahn proposal.
