Scope and Content

File documents Price's participation in an international ideas workshop for a redundant docks area on the river Elbe in Hamburg, Germany. The workshop, entitled "IV. Hamburger Bauforum 1989", was designed as a simulated competition with different teams working separately. Price and his team proposed to turn the area into a large nature reserve for migratory waterfowl, and included a design for a self-powered floating walkway called the "mud-mobile". Although the project arose from the Hamburger Bauforum workshop, Price apparently pursued it further after the workshop was over. Included in this file are drawings of a room, possibly for an exhibition of the project (DR2004:0877). Material in this file was produced between 1989 and 1991.

File contains conceptual drawings, presentation panels, a model, photographs, and textual records.
