It's weird, this looks curved. I know it's not though.

I better think it comes from the merge of several cams, differently orientated... you can see these "south face" cameras from the east face view..

Reusing Statues?

Is the plan to restore and reuse the statues that are shown at the top of this page or will they just serve as models for new ones? These are in the first photo posted by "The Eagle."

One wonders if the people of Berlin will want more reconstructions after seeing this beauty return.

Of course it will be stone. Those are gypsum copies! They take those as 1:1 copies that they can change. Based on those copies the stonemasons make the real deal!

All statues adorning the palace will be copies.
The original statues will be displayed in the lapidarium:

The next reconstruction will be right on the opposite of the Palace, the Bauakademie:



The German government already granted the funds for the reconstruction. Right now there still is only scaffolding with it's visualisation printed on it:



The beautiful square in front of it had been already reconstructed a few years ago:

Great news!
But one corner of the former (and future!) building does exist, doesn't it?

Yes, the corner of the Bauakademie was reconstructed a few years ago already to display the look of the facades created by Schinkel.

No. These are only pipeline for groundwaters to be taken away from the nearby construction sites, in order to keep them dry. Once the works are finished, the pipelines will disappear.
These are pink/blu just to make them look more gentile, and to know where the water inside has been pumped off.
