Further information:



Created in 1980 according to the designs of gmp: the Hanseviertel in Hamburg. Its brick aesthetic was a novelty for the shopping mall typology in Hamburg at that time. The system of covered connections between the streets of the city center also helped the Hanseatic district to set an precedent. 37 years later, on 12th January, two architectural tours through the Hanseviertel, at 4 and 6 pm, will be providing insights behind the scenes.

In doing so, Dr. Christine Onnen (Scientific Inventory Monument Protection Office) will be presenting the reference library of the Monument Protection Office (“Denkmalschutzamt”) in the upper part of the Hanseviertel. Following the tour, gmp's founding partner and architect of the Hanseviertel Volkwin Marg will be highlighting the milestones in the history of the shopping mall. An event that has found great popularity: Both dates are already booked up to the last seat.
