I love the way the church is framed by the two buildings in this pictures. Views like this are one of the things that make great cities great in my opinion.

I wish it could be recreated...

Yeah, those two are beauties! I too always miss them, when I make them out on old pictures. The twins were pretty grand and extensive as well. Their main facades, opposite of each other, went for one whole block. (Somehow hard to describe in English). On the other end of the block, which we don't see here, there were twin cupolas as well.

Is there any chance for them to be rebuilt? Or is the land already occupied?

No chance. Rebuilding "ordinary" Gründerzeit building happens as often as Germany winning a war.

Lets have a look. Situation around 2008 on google streetview but it's mostly the same except the current construction site for the U5 (U-bahn line) on the Marx-Engels-Forum to the right.

If that is the case, we might see them again.

It's a shame because the twins looked great...

Fantastic stuff, that kind of pictures hurt ...

They should rebuild more stuff in Berlin, there still lot of "Gründerzeitbauten" but would love to see at least some rebuildings, maybe at the "Karl Marx-Forum on the right side of the picture where they construct the "U5" at the moment...

Yes i totally agree to you, maybe we have a chance with reconstruction at the "Karl Marx-Engels-Forum and Marienkirche-Viertel", there is also a thread about in the german SSC-Section.

Here you can see, where maybe reconstruction is possible:

I think Saxonia right if he says there will come no reconstruction. For private investores its too expansive and the city of Berlin also hasnt got too much money for such reconstruction.

But maybe..., we can be lucky, that there still at least many "Gründerzeitbauten", here some exampels.

But BACK to TOPIC.

They are really fast!

Building Materials Stored in the Park

The following link was supplied by one of you showing construction progress on the new Humboldt Forum. Are they using the park area across the Spree by the TV tower to store building materials for the new building? It looks like they are from the image of the construction site.

in this "one-day-webcam" you can see the constructionfield of the castle and in front the construction field for the underground railway "U5"...

I think they only use it for the underground railway, but I am not 100% sure...

Ludi - thanks for the great pictures, they really show the progress! I suspect they will be at grade before winter arrives.

I'm still amazed at the number of cranes in Berlin's skyline. Its been like that for the past 20 years and I suspect will be like that for the next 40.

I still love this concept the best (taken from a few pages back):



Would love to see an open courtyard and a public space facing the Spree. Much better than a stark concrete wall.

The Dahlem Museums need as much space as they can get, though.

I am not sure if this is quite the right thread to ask this but, does anyone know where I could find any floor plans for the original city palace for a project I am working on? Just wondering.

Original Rooms in the Stadtschloss

It is too bad that they did not at least reconstruct a couple of the rooms from the original Stadtschloss in the new building. In America it is not uncommon to rent for private functions the ballroom or other large room in a mansion that is now a museum. I would think that there would be a market for that in Germany as well. Any thoughts?
