That same area in 1999. Screenshot from the movie "Absolute Giganten"

So, a TV show (it's basically cultural news in Croatia and all around the world) on HRT, the Croatian national broadcaster, showed a story about the Elbphilharmonie. They talked about the building, the problems with the construction and costs, and they also said it's disliked by most Germans because it's considered to be ugly and because it doesn't blend well with its surroundings. Is that actually true or is it yet another embarrassment of our dear national broadcaster?

The wider public has recently formed a more favorable opinion of this landmark building, as it is sure to become a major cultural draw for Hamburg and really accentuates the already stunning harbor in a new way. In general, star architect buildings have become rather rare in Germany, so when Herzog & de Meuron do build an avant-gardist eye-catcher like this one, it was bound to draw lots of attention. As lots of the architecture surrounding the Elbphilarmonie, meaning the so-called Hafen City, is already rather modern, the building does pay homage to its surroundings.

Having said that, there was definitely some major criticism due to the 6-year delay and the explosion in costs to around 800 mill. Euros (which more than doubled). The political cost was paid by the conservative party (CDU) in Hamburg, who lost the elections also due to this. When all things are said and done, Hamburg probably could have had far worse timing to build this structure due to highly favorable refinancing conditions and a booming local economy.

Thanks for your answer. I know that there were many controversies because of the cost and other problems, but the part with ugliness sounded really stupid to me, as the building itself is a true masterpiece.

I never heard anyone or any media report in Germany saying the Elphi is an ugly building misfitting its area, and I've read a lot about it.

I know, that's why I was quite surprised when I heard that stupid thing. The rest of the story was fine, problems with construction and cost and all that, but at the end of the story they said that most GERMANS disliked it and I was like: "Did they ask everyone? Why would someone in Munich care about a philharmonic hall in Hamburg that much?" Also, general public, even in Hamburg, wouldn't really care about architecture that much, only if something is really, really ugly, and this building obviously isn't. Well, you can't expect much from a TV station that actually invited a psychic during its main news program, although the main editor was demoted for that, but still... No wonder I'm getting my information only from foreign websites.

Of course they did not. There is no nationwide poll or anything like that. So basically nobody knows, if most Germans think it ugly or beautiful. And sure there are people who consider this building ugly. (In the German Thread we also spotted some not so beautiful design issues of this building). But I would rather say: Most Germans just don't really give a shit.
But Most Germans act like most people of the word, thiking their oppninion has to be everyones oppinion. So if architecture-and-society-expert Haty McHater think it is ugly most Germans think so as well (for him). So maybe your television station just quoted this expert

Maybe the German Tripadvisor Page is the best indicator, how Germans think about this building. Everyone can write and everyone could flame

Just to be clear, I was being sarcastic there.
