Foster and Partners: Multimedia Centre, Hamburg

Sport & Wellness, Companies,


The Multimedia Centre in Harvestehude, only a few minutes away from tranquil Alster Lake, marks an important point in Foster's career, summing up many of the inspirations and elements appearing in the British architect's most recent projects.

Foster and Partners: Multimedia Centre, Hamburg But this project was not implemented, as the sole proprietor of the building at the moment is a publisher, who has preferred to construct offices rather than apartments.
In actual fact, the height of the top floor had been doubled to permit construction of apartments on two floors. Foster's building is a part of a very important block from the architectural point of view, right across from the Rothenbaum tennis courts.

The Multimedia Centre stands next to a building housing television studios and offices designed by Hamburg architect Wolfgang Grobner some time ago.
Architecturally, the two buildings, which are connected by an overhead walkway crossing the foyer at the height of the fourth floor, do not have much in common.
On the other side, along Rothenbaumchaussee, plans have been presented for extension of Foster's office building.

When the project has been completed, very little of the set of cubic apartments designed by the Basel group Team 5 in the same block will be visible.
