..Hello Hamburg..

When modelling a long time ago I lived in Hamburg several times and always with Carmen. We are still friends and with schoolholidays we had the chance to visit Hamburg. It became a wonderful reunion trip, where we not only met with Carmen and her daughter but also with architect and former colleague Anke and her son.


Anke made a program for all of us to see the IBA, Intenationale Bau Ausstellung with the first algae apartment building BIQ. One facade is made of algae, which provides energy but also gives shadow through the algae that grow faster when there is more sun.

Very known in Hambrug is Planten und Blomen, a great park and playgarden from the seventies with matching plastic mountains. The children loved it.

Carmen took us to the neighbourhood Karolinenviertel where we walked through the Marktstrasse, an upcoming neighbourhood where you can find green courtyards, cool shops, have stroll in the fleamarket and eat a nice cake somewhere.
