Regarding Portal III

Prewar photographs of "Portal Three" show all three openings (or doors) in that entrance to be arched at the top. The current reconstruction has the tops of these openings squared off rather than arched. I can't help but wonder if the stone and brick work will take care of this or if the architects have something else in mind. Does anyone happen to know?

That drawing should make it clear:

Of course the arched gates will be restored!

Looks can be deceiving. I think arched gates and spandrels will be built within the square openings on either side of the main gate.

Because some here inquired about the future surroundings of the Palace, here are renders of the winning design:









by BBZ Landscape Architects

They are also campaigning to bring back the "Rossebändiger", which stood in front of the Palace:

Both are standing right now in park in Berlin. Here's one of them:


Another very important matter is the "Neptunbrunnen", that once stood on the south side of the Palace:



Right now it is to be found in front of the Berlin City Hall:

Neptunbrunnen by Michael, on Flickr

To be perfectly honest, I like it exactly where it is now...

It will survive WWIII much better that way, than it's predecessor.

Nice, the cladding is looking good. That modernist part will be a great foil to the rest of the classicism around it

That's it for now. In general, I was very excited and the dimensions are truly impressive . Small and lack of space felt not occurred to me and although we were able to enter only the EC and 1st floor .

...and truly impressive photos. You were all over the palace like a bee. Thank you so much for the pictures; and for the incredible views not available through the Webcam.

Great photos ! Thank you very much !
Does anyone know, why they put these vertical things (or cuts) under the thermal isolation ? (you can see it in the second photo).

I've wondered about the vertical cuts, too - both above and between the windows. While they were being grouted, I assumed they would have something to do with the brickwork. But, as you say, they're being covered over with insulation so the bricks don't even touch the grouted concrete.

Perhaps this is the answer:

Another possibility (and this seems most likely): Contraction Joints: These are vertical joints or grooves formed or cut into the wall that allows the concrete to shrink without noticeable harm. Contraction joints are usually about 0.25 inches wide and about 1/2 to 3/4 inch deep, and are provided at intervals of not exceeding 30 feet.
