Thanks for the Great Update Photos

Ludi: Thank you so much for the great update photos. You are providing a level of detail concerning the palace reconstruction that most of us would never be able to see on our own. Please keep up the good work as you have time to do so.

Steel ring with steel ribs of the cupola should be ready 12 June

On Wednesday morning at 8 clock a low loader brought the disassembled into two parts ton steel tires for castle construction site in the middle . In the afternoon, should the components of the steel ring, which later will carry the lantern , be balanced by a crane in 70m height . There builders should combine the undecorated tires on a purpose-built scaffolding . The project , however, was first placed . The steel ring with a diameter of approximately five meters is not only a key element in the lamp , but also forms the prerequisite for the steel ribs of the dome lock can be merged at the top .

" If everything goes as planned , we will have already used the topping-out ceremony on June 12, all the ribs ," said Bertold Just , head of Castle Bauhütte .

What we know for the moment is, that archeological works continue at the National Memorial site. The approval procedure is delayed, the new memorial could be completed by 2017, at the earliest (German article). I just hope they scrap the current plan, because it's an ill-conceived concept that isn't backed by the German people. Wrong location, wrong design.

I'd prefer a timeless glassy obelisk in front of the Bundestag, with inscriptions of important positive data and values of Germany (9 CE - Teutoburg Battle, 900 first Emperor, 1648 Peace of Westphalia, 1848 German Revolution, 1871 Unification, 1919 Weimar Republic, 1949 BRD, 1951 Treaty of Paris - EU cornerstone, 1990 Re-Unification, "We are the People, We are one People", "Unity and Justice and Freedom", ...). It could be illuminated at night and signal dignity and consciousness, while also being elegant. At a height of 19,90m. It would be a testimonial to German maturity and deliberation. It'd also match the national forum and the Reichstag building; in contrast to the misplaced kitschy teeter-totter squeezed in front of the Palace.

How about a height of 199m or even 1990m?

They should just rebuild the old National Kaiser Wilhelm Monument....

Of course they should! We've had lengthy debates in various forums and communities about this. Most people support reconstructing the colonnades and the Kaiser's base, but not with the Kaiser sitting on his horse. After all, it was dedicated to Wilhelm I., a somewhat involuntary emperor without great visions. The great statesman of early Germany was Otto von Bismarck.

There was a proposal with many regular "people" on the monument, symbolising the German people who re-united the country. I quite liked that idea, even though it's not so mature at the very moment when it comes to execution. Here's a drawing:


It's called "Entwurf 1435" (Design 1435), I forgot which artist created it, perhaps some Googling will do.


What I was suggesting with that glass obelisk is a Freedom & Unity Memorial at the feet of the German parliament, where once the Victory Column was standing. Like that:

Denkmal

I hope that the German government abandons plans for that horrible modernist "bomb fragment" monument that they have proposed putting up in place of the Kaiser Wilhelm Denkmal. The concept shown by Erbse is something that really deserves a second look.

I agree. It would ruin the grandeur and elegance of the area. There's been enough modernist abominations snuck into this development already.

Brick work seems to have ground to a halt. Did they run out of money?

I don't see it slowing down at all, Turtlebay. If anything, it's picked up speed over the past two weeks. The brickwork is quickly reaching the tops of the windows at the southwest corner, and new scaffolding is being erected on the south façade and extended along the sides of portal in the Schlueter Hof.

I just don't see guys on the scaffold. After the first lintel on the west façade hardly ever anyone, just a few down between portals I and II.
