“However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light” (Stanley Kubrick)

A new light went on in Hamburg to shine brightly across the harbour.

A thriving cultural sector is an essential part of what makes a city great. Now we can find the Bilbao effect in the Northern Part of Germany. The Elbphilharmonie is a concert hall designed by architecture firm  Herzog & de Meuron and will give further prove how  our buildings will shape us.

According to Barry Schwartz the distinguished anthropologist Clifford Geert said that human beings  are “unfinished animals” .What he meant is that it is human nature to have a human nature that is very much the product of the society that surrounds us.

It is great that this building is finished to help shaping the unfinished animals.
