In June 2017, World of Walas opened a new office in Hamburg (Germany). The office is located in the central part of the HafenCity, and will be the office for German operations and home to Walas Concepts Hamburg. The new district (still under construction!) is built on a former harbour area along the river Elbe and very close to the historical downtown.
The 100 sqm space is open to the public. It will provide a stage to present citizens initiatives, a platform to discuss about the future of the city, a center to learn sustainability and a laboratory to develop ideas.
The team in Hamburg specializes on urban planning tasks, such as area and district (re)design and management, community engagement and empowerment, access to tecnologies for the built environment and equipment of the public space. The network is getting every day bigger and Walas is looking for large and small opportunities of cooperation to contribute to the local development.
