The Flickr Travelogues – architectural eye-candy from Hamburg

The Flickr photo-sharing website is an amazing resource for the virtual tourist – oh the places I have virtually been to…

It is, of course, only a visual form of travel, but we here in the antipodes have coped with books, magazines and slide shows when learning about architecture for quite some time – and no doubt will for some time longer. Flickr, however, democratizes selection of the places that we get to see – the ‘icons’ will always be heavily represented, but so will a range of other unnamed and unattributed works that are nonetheless worth witnessing – even in the superficial form (and Flickr excels in the superficial).

So, each week (or perhaps just every now and then) I’ll make a selection of images and post them here for your visual delight. You can click on the images to visit the original (larger images). I will be sure to credit the photographer under each image, (and where details are provided, the architect/s and building as well.

This week’s search terms: Hamburg/contemporary/architecture
