The Office for Metropolitan Art (OMA) has just revealed their final design for the New Hamburg Science Center and Aquarium. The structure will house a science centre, aquarium, theatre, offices, laboratories as well as commercial and retail facilities. The structural design consists of 10 interconnecting blocks that will form the shape of a ring.

While it doesn´t look too bad I just don´t know how many more offices and retail space the new harbour city in Hamburg actually needs. The whole "harbour city" project that is currently under construction could turn out to be a massive failure and work against anything that will be required for urban architecture in the future. Right now there is a gigantic surplus in office space and they continue to build more and more.
