Veddel Übersetzen

The week of events ‘Über-Setzen. Erkundungen auf der Veddel’ took place as part of the 9th Hamburg Summer of Architecture. Projects by HafenCity University students were presented around the old customs area on the Elbe island of Veddel, accompanied by thematic discovery tours on Veddel and the Elbe. For the design, we played typographically with words, syllables and lines that create a connection between format and meanings.

Heterocronias

Is there only one form of time and does it apply to all?
