ArchitekTOUR 2011 – Architektur bewegt

On 23rd June, one of six one-day lecture events under the banner of "Water World – Maritime Move" series. Along with other speakers from distinguished architectural firms, Volkwin Marg will be speaking on the subject of Urban Design and the Waterfront – Three Decades of Experiences.

Hamburg’s Hafencity is currently one of the most exciting large-scale architectural projects in Germany. But ports in other cities are likewise developing into an important component of urban identity. The "Water World – Maritime Design" lecture event in Hamburg takes a look at water-related construction and design from a Hamburg viewpoint. Practical examples of solutions and innovations by leading companies will be presented. As part of the event, Volkwin Marg will be speaking about three decades of experience in urban design for waterfront contexts.
