Exterior Finish

Will the non-stone exterior walls of the Stadtschloss be covered with stucco or left as brick? If brick, will they be painted? Photos of the original structure make it look like the exterior walls were a beige color that looks like stucco in the photos.

Neither stucco nor painted brick. It will be plastered and then painted, very likely in beige whereas the stone parts stay untouched.

Unfortunately, I believe they've opted for a modern interior for some peculiar reason.

On a technical level as well as on an artistical level the masonry and sculpting will be on par with the baroque original. For over a decade experts and artists have been researching, studying and practicing to come as close to the original as possible. (Even the stone comes from the exact same stone quarries as 300 years ago) Each ornament is created four times: In the computer, then in clay, then gypsum and finally, if everything is right, in stone.

Yeah. I'm pretty sure that all of the interiors are going to be constructed in a modern style. They only raised enough money to construct three out of four façades, hence why there's that far more dull one facing the Spree.

Please don't spread half-truths, if you don't know for sure.

There was actually never the intention to rebuild the City Palace as the City Palace (with all it's interiors and facades). What is being build right now is the Humboldt Forum, a modern convention center and museum complex, but clad with the three baroque facades of the City Palace. A long time it wasn't even clear, if these three facades would come back, as some modernists highly objected against it. It was a two decades long and hard battle! So, the old interiors were not considered, because there was no money, but because all space was from the beginning intended to be used for conventions and museum exhibits.
There is however still the chance, to rebuild some of the interiors in the future. For example the "Gigantentreppe":



This historic staircase will now be occupied by the lapidariu, in which some remnants of the original baroque facade will be showcased. So not much of the actual convention and museum space would be affected, if the lapidariu would cease to exist. After the facade has been completely paid by donations, this will be the first historic interior, that they might consider bringing back. Might consider! I have the feeling, this once again will be a hard and long battle against the modernists.

The Fourth Side

Keep in mind that there never was a uniform baroque fourth side of the stadtschloss but rather a mixture of odds and ends of earlier structures. Personally, I would have just carried the architecture of the other three sides on around the fourth side. However, there are those purists who object to mixing original and new parts of a building and making them appear to be one seamless whole. Most likely, that viewpoint won out in the end.

I read somewhere that the interior of the Palace can be rebuilt. Not everything, but a big part of it. I can see it happening in the future since the public will probably LOVE the finished product in 2019, so they will want more.

Germany's biggest cultural building project is taking shape near Berlin's Museum Island. Those in charge of it hope to avoid the skyrocketing costs and postponed deadlines that have plagued other prestige projects such as the new Berlin airport.

Ludi, the pics you are sometimes posting by this "qualifier", where do you get them from? Is there any chance, that guy can do pictures without always adding those horrible image quality destroying filters? Is he posting them on Instagram, lol?

Interiors

Even better, I can't post links, but look up historisches stadschloss and click on the first link, then click on old palace or new palace and there's tons of info on old rooms (even more obscure ones) if you haven't seen it already.
