In the 21st century, some of the most crucial requirements for development worldwide are careful management of resources and environmental compatibility. HafenCity in Hamburg embodies the sustainable development of regenerated former port sites, realised through innovative strategies. In the new 120 sqm Osaka 9 exhibition pavilion on Magdeburger Hafen come alive the core issues of ecological sustainable urban development:

  • Mixed-use city structure efficient with resources
  • Mobility structure saving time and reducing carbon emissions
  • Sustainable energy supply and certified buildings

The Sustainability Pavilion is located on the embankment promenade on Magdeburger Hafen, opposite the International Maritime Museum Hamburg and the Elbarkaden. The pavilion gives a clear overview of the spectrum of activities where sustainable urban development is focused. Visitors are confronted by an unusual yet inspiring exhibition space: a sculpture installation made of used wooden pallets refers to the port, whilst integrated multimedia exhibits clarify the issues affecting sustainable urban development. The exhibition is constantly updated.

The exhibition also encourages visitors to explore the"green" aspects of HafenCity. They can experience the existing sustainable projects through guided environmental outdoor tours (s. below) or have fun discovering completed or current projects for themselves following the instructions on the special "Quartette" playing cards placed in themed compartments in the exhibition. A range of excursions, events, discussions and lectures on a variety of issues connected with sustainable development is organised in cooperation with various partners.
