One from Trondheim, Norway.

A building known as Munken, built in 1902. The highest building in the city that wasn't a church at its time of completion.




Munken / Kongens gate 18 (1933) by Municipal Archives of Trondheim, on Flickr

The building was demolished in 1971 after a fire.

And was replaced with this building that still stands there to this day.

Wow, a house with just 4 storeys and a little turret was the highest buidling in Trondheim? In 19th century Germany 4 storey buildings were the norm, even in small cities.

It's six floors and a turret actually although the last one is not full. There are many other four floorers located around the city from the same period. While that is said Trondheim have always been relatively low city if you discount the historic churches there. This picture is fairly representative of the historic cityscape there:

Here is also a old aerial of the city: http://dms01.dimu.org/image/03TVRj79...sion=1200x1200

What you need to remember though is that Norway was a relatively poor country in the period between the black death and the late 18th century and close to no building activity happened here. It was first when industrialization come in the 1850s that started to properly change, but the economical activity at the time become very centralized around Kristiania/Oslo-region and other cities saw a lot less action. Hence Trondheim haven't really had a change to develop until modern time.

Trondheim had a population of 47,000 in 1900.

I think the current building is fine, kinda constructivist. Just needs a de-clutter and a repaint.

Fine for what? Probably keeps the rain out and supplies some heat.

It actually looks like out of interbellum period, it's not bad at all IMO. It would be a shame to just tear it down, there's loads of other buildings in the city that would deserve it way more. Saying that, the previous building was magnificient, one of Belgrade's finest and somehow easily identifiable as 'Serbian'.

Problem is a bit different, previous building was regarded as supreme jewel and highest achievement of Serbian architecture, created as an establishing example of post medieval Serbian architecture style, so current building is hated very, very much, as a representation of narrow-minded communism that had destroyed national architectural direction...

Magnificent. Do you know the name of the architect who designed this building?

Both the previous building and its replacement are good buildings, in my opinion.
I'd like to see the previous one rebuilt, but in a different location (possibly close to where it stood), so that both buildings would survive

That was at the end achieved?

P.D: To contribute somehow, a link to a page giving examples of ruined buildings and replacements in Europe: http://www.lavidaesinfinito.com/patr...ido-en-europa/
It is in Spanish, however, it has almost no text, pictures and names of the replaced places : )
