Duration of exhibition 18.9. – 25.10.2009 Venue Freie Akademie der Künste in Hamburg
The Lingang New City In Process – Resultate exhibition at the Freie Akademie der Künste in Hamburg is dedicated to past, present and future planning work on this scheme and the results achieved.
Highlights of the exhibition include the Maritime Museum in Lingang New City, completed in 2009, and the City Hall. Large-scale models, plans and photos give a glimpse of current progress.
A lecture on "Transformation einer Metapher: das Maritim Museum in Lingang New City, China" (Transformation of a Metaphor: the Maritime Museum in Lingang New City, China) explains the double sail design at the Maritime Museum, which with a height of 60m will be among the tallest unsupported structures ever built. Construction was a particular challenge for both architects and structural engineers alike.
