Elbtower Hamburg.

Reader prize for the Elbtower.

05.03.2018 - The investors’ and architects’ competition for the c. 230 m high Elbtower beside the Elbe bridges (Elbbrücken) has been decided.

According to a survey, Hamburg’s newspaper readers came to a somewhat different conclusion from the expert jury: they voted the design from HADI TEHERANI as the winner. Our company, INGENIEURBÜRO DR. BINNEWIES, was involved in the planning for this design.

The design comprises two sections of differing heights, joined by a glazed atrium, intended to represent a billowing sail. The bracing of the two slender high-rise slabs is assured by the central crossing part which forms a highly visible component of the design. The multi-storey plinth is planned to house public facilities.
