The Equator Artist Group acquired some old wood from the Port of Hamburg and obtained permission to use three different types of material used in the harbor. Next summer the group plans to create furniture and art pieces from these ruins in cooperation with German artists. The Hamburg Port’s 825th Anniversary will be held in 2014.

The Port of Hamburg (Hamburger Hafen) is a port in Hamburg, Germany, on the river Elbe. The harbour is located 110 kilometres from the mouth of the Elbe into the North Sea. It is called Germany’s “Gateway to the World” and is the largest port in Germany. The port is the third-busiest port in Europe and 15th-largest worldwide.
