Ney & Partners 2nd Prize U4 subway line Grasbrook, Hamburg (D)

Together with Ingenieurbüro Grassl and PPL Architektur, Ney & Partners won the 2nd prize for the competition for the design of a 1 km long extension of the U4 subway line towards the new Grasbrook district in Hamburg, Germany. The infrastructure project consists of three sections: a new bridge over the Elbe, parallel to the historic Freihalfenelbbrücke, a viaduct over land and a bridge over the Moldauhafen with the station Moldauhafen suspended above the water. The design included pedestrian and cycle connections and emphasised sustainability; photovoltaic elements on the linear cornices generated enormous amounts of energy, nesting aids provided shelter for bats, birds and insects.
