The Actors

For seven years, the IBA Hamburg has been looking for answers to the most urgent questions of the modern city. It developed more than 70 projects which have been realised on the Elbe islands up to 2013 and beyond.


The international building exhibition IBA Hamburg has successfully been filled with life by a team of employees, investors, partners, committees and dedicated citizens with tremendous passion and commitment.


In detail, this is the management and the whole staff of IBA, the IBA supervisory board, an IBA board of trustees of experts from throughout the world which has accompanied the process of the IBA right from the beginning. Investors without the dedicated support of which many projects would never have been possible. Furthermore, official and private partners, many sponsors and promoters, an own committee for civic participation of active citizens and politicians of the IBA presentation area, the IBA advisory board 'Klima und Energie' of experts from science, politics and practice. And finally, the coordinating committees in charge of the realisation of the IBA projects and the international horticultural show 'Internationale Gartenschau 2013' which has brought the Elbe island 'Wilhelmsburg' a lasting green oasis by the 'Wilhelmsburg Inselpark'.
