The concert hall "Elbphilharmonie" in Hamburg is an impressive building. Its trailblazing architecture attracts already, when you're still miles away. But you'll have to get very close and take your time to explore its small architectural details, in order to understand, that it's these details, that create this concert hall from the inside out.
The architectural essence of this concert hall can be found in every single piece, whether it's a window, a stair case corner or the outer shell. It repeats itself but is never the same. One can dive into this architectural organism and feel the vibrancies, the Elbphilharmonie consists of.
In April 2018 I had the chance to revisit this concert hall, to take photographs in the restricted areas.
