The book presents the history of the architecture box in image and text, surrounded from the simultaneous world championship parties, blue goals, the avant-garde of architecture and art scene of Hamburg… This book summarises in an impressive manner the events of a long hot summer and shows the long way of the box on the ship along the River Elbe where it has landed in a new “creative” colony at the old customs pier Entenwerder – a peculiar, maybe unique piece of art.

With texts from: Dr. Ullrich Schwarz, Michael Batz, Christine Dissmann, Claas Gefroi, David Grossland and others.
