That is very pleasant to see the reconstruction of a so charming city. As Carpenter said, the Frauenkirche is a genial work of barroque architecture

Iktinos,

Please explain why those concessions are necessary right now??? They ruin an otherwise beautiful ensemble! How could they let investors build stuff like that? Is it because they are cheaper to build?

Most architects hate reconstructions. And sadly these people are usually able to influence politicians (on city councils etc). Hence in order to get some reconstructions, the proponents of these reconstructions will then have to make some concessions to the modernists.

This is what the building site behind the Frauenkirche (1st pic previous post) might look like in a couple of years.

I still think it's incredible that such a project could ever become reality in Germany, a country where buildings are always connected to (and almost held responsible for) our dreadful history.





Really BIG pictures

Nobody in their right mind could say that the building on the right is better/prettier than the one on the left. Modern architecture blows.

Thats a stupid generalization.
Should we start to built everything like its a 100 years old?
Honestly, we have to be carefull that we dont go down the retro path too much.
The Neumarkt project is great, but we cant say modern architecture is shit.
It isnt. Theres crappy modern architecture and theres great modern architecture.

Would I, for instance want a retro brickhouse stadium instead of the Allianz Arena? surely not.

I'm talking about everyday architecture. Compare the modern buildings of the Neumarkt to the old ones and you'll see that much more work has gone into the old ones. I'm not saying we should go back to those days, architecture obviously progresses, I'm just saying that we should perhaps try to use past architecture as inspiration for new buildings.

Anyway, some new shots: http://www.aphforum.de/forum/viewtop...142&start=1596

Great effort from Dresden! If these buildings are a reconstruction from a scratch, then they are really impressive. The color of the roofs could be a bit toned down, but I guess it'll look about right after getting dirty.

Scaffolding's been removed from another building...this one could be the most beautiful in the entire area.
