One of the most exciting and amazing building projects in the world at the moment, looking forward to going back to Berlin and seeing it taking shape, what a difference it is going to make to this part of the city.

Dear god they actually pushed through with the modernist side of the building.

Have they gone mad?

We're just subsidizing the construction industry, since obviously we'll tear this f*cker down in about 20 years, for a faithful reconstruction.

We don't have to demolish it... Let's do it, like they do in Skopje. Just slap some ornaments on it...et voilà, looks as good as old!

Nice work! Looks good.

Exactly what I mean..., they can slap some ornaments later on it.

Why, thanks very much! I too think, I have outdone myself with this one! Let's immediately send it to Stella -or even better- start a new petition!

by the way, the three statues above the entrance are depicting Wilhelm- and Alexander von Humboldt...and their mother, because she gave birth to them.

Tbh, I don't think it's such a bad idea. They could apply some sort of relief on the Stella facade. That'd at least make it somewhat interesting.

Similar to the Bundesumweltministerium BMU (Federal Environment Ministry), just more distinctive. Sorry for the poster...

I added this visualisation to post #1 of the thread:

Southern side of the Schlossplatz - where once the Neptun Fountain stood (now in front of the Rotes Rathaus/Red City Hall)

Just My Opinion

Some of these comments seem to me to be awfully petty. The chances of getting a complete, faithful in every detail, reconstruction of the old Stadtschloss building inside and out are nil now and in the future. Some of you act like the place won't be complete unless the Hohenzollerns are asked to take up some sort of residence in the place. Would it make you any happier if Georg Friedrich and his family had an apartment in the building?

The only thing that I cannot see is why have a modern design for the fourth side? Why not just continue the overall design of the other three sides on around to the fourth?

Because Germany, Europe and the world's dominated by modernist architects who just have to leave their poop everywhere, regardless of the location and the surrounding classical beauty (supported by urban planners, politicians and the media). Instead of the history and beauty conscious Traditionalists and New Urbanists. Simple as that.

They have committed to rebuild this Palace , why not go all the way ? of course it won't be a hundred percent looking exactly like the original but at least let people feel the spirit of European classical architecture to the end ...( they could have just let the old structure remained ) if the message is Modernism is the way to go now .

They have been pretty wise to rebuild it with an eye to historical coherence. In around 50 years pretty much all of Asia, Australia, South America and North America will look exactly the same. People will actually look for unique cities like Barcelona, Rome, Paris... and Berlin. Tourism will hugely benefit from this.

Unfortunately this is truer than you think.

What I mean is, not every city can be as iconic as New York City, but smaller cities that have a unique urban form will definitely have more appeal in the future. The day when you won't be able to tell apart Beijing from Baltimore or São Paulo from Johannesburg... not many people will pay too much attention to the Dresden Neumarkt being rebuilt from scratch a few decades too late after it was destroyed.

Great to see that the building is starting to rise up. We were in Berlin last September, and the area was still grassed over. So quickly has the work been done! Out of interest, what is to happen, or has happened with the archaeology that was revealed in the area? Has it just been recorded and covered up, or is some of it to somehow go on display in the lower levels of the new building? We have seen examples of this, in Dresden for example, where a new building has been constructed over the ruins of a building destroyed during WW2, but you can still see the old foundations in the basement of the new build.

We have photos of the foundations of the original Berliner Schloss, and of a church that was discovered under the Schlossplatz road. Really interesting archaeology, but I can not share the photos with you as I am not able to attach pictures to my posts. I do hope that the historical side of this site will be preserved somehow.
