“The architects von Gerkan, Marg and Partners (gmp) have won first prize in the competition for the design of the Elbbrücken Underground station. The station will be located in the future district of the same name, at the eastern end of Hamburg‘s Hafencity, and will, at least for the time being, be the end station of the recently opened U4 Underground line.
The external roof construction underscores the visual presence of the structure; the crosswise layout of the frames results in a grid-type system and stabilizes the steel arches.
A glass façade suspended on the inside protects the building against the weather. The light-flooded station opens interesting vistas towards the local urban‚ Am Baakenhafen’ center, to the prominent tower blocks and the Elbe bridges.”
