Jury Statement:

Our lost site, ‘Löschplatz am Billhafen’ is located in the vicinity of the Elbe bridges at Billhafen, which has been an unused space for a long time. Once used as a harbor zone, where the transfer of goods between land and water took place. The site is located in the district of Rothenburgsort, Hamburg. The headland between the Elbe bridges is the selected site for this idea competition project. The existing graffiti, the view of the railway bridges over the Oberhafen Canal and the current blue crane with its port heritage make this lost place worthy of reclaiming. At present, cyclists and photographers visit this site. Its convenient accessibility from the Elbbruecken S Bahn station and the hidden potential of this site makes it an ideal space to rethink and rejuvenate.
