Following severe criticism for its soaring costs and the heads of its initiators having rolled, the city of Hamburg was finally able to hold a topping-out ceremony for its new Elbphilharmonie, designed by Herzog & de Meuron. Thanks to some very generous Hamburg citizens, more than €77 million has been raised through donations and other means of revenue against a total construction cost of €400 million.

The glass-structured design sits on top of Kaispeicher A, a historic redbrick landmark building within ‘HafenCity’ (Harbour City), Europe’s biggest urban construction site.
