Germany is in a castle reconstruction boom. Also interesting for what the castels will be used for, to make financially sense! But see yourself:

Hannover town, Welfen schloss, Build by VW foundation as congress centre

Zwickau town, Castle rebuild private as nursing home.

Braunschweig town, Stadtschloss as museum. Payed private as a thank you by investor. He was aloud to put a shopping mall on the former grounds.

Pirna town, derelict schloss rebuild as offices for private and government offices,

Frankfurt town, Thurn and Taxis Palais. Investor rebuild it for office space. Mostly Law Firms

Bad Muskau, village. Reconstruction by donation and government as museum and conference center. Very impressive outcome.

Dresden town, residence schloss. Museum, funded by government. Payed by visitor. The only interior reconstruction.

Zerbst town. Schloss Zerbst. Slow private reconstruction from the birthplace of later become Russian Zarr Katarina the Great as museum, maybe office in part.

Potsdam town. Stadtschloss rebuild by private and government as new parliament building for the state/province of Brandenburg (arround Berlin)

Berlin, Stadtschloss, reconstruction as museum. conference and event space, also as large library, entrance to the metro as well as restaurateur workshops for neighboring museum island. Museum island is a collection of different museums. Put together, it would be bigger than the Louvre in Paris. That one is the biggest museum in the world.

Exterior Finish Work

Does anyone know how long it is expected to be before any of the exterior finish work on the stadtschloss will begin? I realize that they are not anywhere near ready to begin that at the moment. However, I would expect to see them want to close the building up with the roof and windows in place before any significant work were to begin on the interior.

About the concrete: You know how Germans are. Always trying to top things. In this case they are not just rebuilding, no they are also building an ultra low energy consumption building. They put up a concrete shell, on top isolation and on top of that real self standing brick. The thickness of that wall is the very same as of the original. In order to add the isolation they replaced half of the thick brick wall with concrete! There was some debate over it as you can imagine! Some wanted to use hollow ziegel, like the rest of town uses it. You don`t need isolation if you use those ziegel. But because the wall would not contain any brick ziegel at all, they decided to go half old way, half new.
Now the building uses only 5%!!! of the heating than the old one would have! Because they also going to add an in ground heating/cooling system. Water get`s pumped down hunderts of meters into the ground and back up.
Now I am quoting myself

The Humboldt Box looks very nice. It should be given a permanent home after the project is completed.

Sorry, but I can hardly take your hypocritical BS anymore! So the Humboldt Box isn't "cheap" or "fake" as the Frauenkirche is or the Stadtschloss?

You do know, the Humboldt Box is build of comparatively cheap material and thought to be only temporary? It's not much more than a fancy container.
Last but not least, if they are going to give it a permanent home elsewhere, they have to tear it down and reconstruct it somewhere else. I guess, to you it's still not cheap and fake then...

My idea is to take the Humboldt box and leave it on a place for another 5-10 years. I used permanent in a wrong way.

The Humboldt Box is not game because it isn't imitating something that disappeared.

I'd rather have something that imitates something good, than something new that's ugly.

An Inconsistency

Pardon my curiosity, but has anyone else noticed that the main entrance as it is being reconstructed has square door openings whereas the historic structure has arched openings for the three doors? I don't see how the new entrance will look like the old one at that rate. Any thoughts or explanations out there?

No, Joe, dont worry, they created base in square, but all of stone carvings and decorations will be added after, as those are not done in concrete, but in carved stone. I am quite sure that portal will look just as same as possible.
