At the end of May and the beginning of June our employees went on a study trip to Hamburg.
The main destinations of the visit were the International Gardening Fair IGS 2013 (Internationale Gartenschau Hamburg) and the International Construction Fair IBA (Internationale Bauausstellung IBA Hamburg).
The international gardening fair in Germany goes back to 1869, whereas the construction fair to 1901. This event is not just an “exhibition”, but it provides an excellent tool for area renovation, search for solutions to sensitive social and urban issues, and finding prototype architectural ideas.
Apart from participating in the fair we took the opportunity to go sightseeing in Hamburg, including the Old Town, Haffencity, Altona, and Lubeka.
