Abstract (in English)

In 2014, the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg was about to file a submission for recognition of the ensemble Speicherstadt und Chilehaus mit Kontorhausviertel (warehouses and com-plex of office buildings including Chilehaus) as world cul-tural heritage. To put the Hamburg ensembles in an international context and give them the prominence they deserve, ICOMOS Ger-many and the Department for Heritage Preservation of the Hamburg Ministry of Cultural affairs, in cooperation with the HafenCity University and the Sutor Foundation, in 2011 organised an international conference with the title “ Urban Development towards Modernism – The Birth of the Metro-politan Harbour and Commercial Districts”. During the con-ference, comparative international examples of both the archi-tecture of warehouse complexes from around 1900 and of modern office buildings from the 1920’s and 1930’s were pre-sented and discussed. The conference addressed not only the question of similar objects that exist elsewhere in the world, but also their respective state of preservation and repair.
