Why is the circular form they're building atop the base of the dome so tall - and completely vertical? I compare the webcam image with the picture of the finished palace on the first page, and cannot reconcile the two.

I assume that these are simply supports while the dome is constructed.

I think that if you look closely you will see that the lower part of the dome is not actually round but composed of a number of flat panels. That should be what they are reconstructing at this point in the process.

Can anyone explain the final exterior construction plans? Will the lowest level windows be completed first and the next levels to follow? Will the brick understructure be entirely completed before the stucco and the ornamentation follow? Thank you.

Thx a lot Civis Fede II!

So many tourist at the cathedral and now one time pics here.

@albanyjd: yes they begin with the lowest level and then follow higher levels. The stucco and brick construction/ wall grow up parallel.

There are no stucco ornaments on the facade. All the ornaments will, like the original, be carved from sandstone. As these elements are very heavy, they have to be incorporated directly into the brick wall. So wall and ornaments will be build at the same time.

@Ludi, what are you telling him? XD You do know very well, that there is no stucco.

By the end of 2015, the Schloss is supposed to look like this (south facade):

I can't help but think that when the palace is finished, it will be so breathtakingly beautiful that the inappropriateness of the modern addition will become glaringly evident. The general consensus will be, "what were they thinking?" and repair of this ghastly mistake will likely follow.

"what were they thinking?" will apply to that horrible carbuncle restaurant on the roof. The modern addition will endear with time.

Why? Random window shit has plagued architecture and destroyed cityscapes for the past twenty years. Look at areas of major European cities today, and compare them to before this trend came about. You'll see they would look much better without it.

The proposed modern facade is boring, but at least it looks smart.

Ludi was talking in reference to how the facade material/colour turns out, not the window pattern or else.
I don't like barcode/random window patterns either, though this building is borderline okay when seen in its street context.

The Humboldt Box? It's used as the main venue to appeal for donations, inform about the Palace's history, and future as a museum of global cultures. It'll be torn down (or translocated, not yet decided) when the Palace is finished, supposedly in 2019.

No, it won't.
It's just an eyesore.

They just need to cover the modernist facade in ivy or other evergreens. Problem solved.
