Great progress and an exciting time for this building and Berlin.

I can't help but say, at the same moment, 'there's still time to do the interiors right too!!!'

From what I've read, rebuilding the original interiors is going to be left to future generations.

How I wish I could be one of those generations! For the time being, I feel fortunate to be able to see at least exterior being rebuilt.

Particularly THIS interior which was considered by many experts in architecture and design to have been Europe's most notable interior design and construction. Even if just the most important rooms and halls were to be replaced, it would be immeasurably valuable.

Thanks for the Great Update Photos

I would like to thank Ludi for the great update photos of this project in progress that he has been providing. This gives those of us who are not in Berlin a lot better feel for what is going on there. The detail that he provides is very much appreciated.

Again, thank you very much.

I see new scaffolding going up at the base of the southwest corner. Could this be for brickwork on the façade? (!!)

According to Mr. von Boddien, the bricks will start climbing their way up the facade by the beginning of April.

Are plans made or at least underway for a major dedication of the building when completed? I was fortunate to attend the official dedication of the Frauenkirche in Dresden, and similar event for the Stadt Schloss would be another 'don't miss' experience.

Of course there will be a grand ceremonial dedication. It's one of the most important projects of reunited Germany so far, on par with the Bundestag. It will be at some point in 2019 most probably, we'll see how they'll proceed.

New stuff by Frankonia Development, which are developing the Schinkelsquare next to City Palace...



There left some details, but I want to share them here anyway.



For example the cross on the top wouldnt be that big.

Just little off topic, how will look like Schinkelsquare/Schinkelplatz? Is that reconstruction also?

I agree. I rationalize by saying anything's better than a vacant lot, or worse, a parking lot.

There were better proposals for Schinkelplatz though, such as the very classical one by Stuhlemmer:
