Hamburg, surprisingly boasts even more bridges and canals than Amsterdam or Venice, severely limiting the space it has for new residential development. In many of these cities that contain internal waterways, global warming is causing water levels to surge, resulting in uncontrollable flooding. How could Hamburg pack in more people while simultaneously preparing for rising waters? The city is addressing both of these issues with a “living and working on the water” initiative.
