Why does there always have to be some kind of ideology behind the wish for a "beautiful" cityscape? I don't think I am ashamed of our times... nor am I for absolute monarchy, if I support the rebuilding of Berlin's City Palace...
There is just one simple problem: modernism is ugly! And if modern day architects struggle so much to design a cityscape that is pleasing to eye, like Paris today still is, or Vienna, Prague...then reconstructing or copying what once stood there is the only possible way.
Have you seen the modern fillers in between the Dresden reconstructions? They're horrible! Their bland, grey, boring, ugly...
When the architecture style changed from Romanesque to Gothic, Gothic was still pleasing to they eye and highly artistic or when Baroque succeded Rennaissance... But today we are at a point were architects design houses, that are actually just cubes of concrete with some holes for windows... It's like the complete antithesis to everything that was before. You can't really compare that with the gradual transformation of older styles and whole cityscapes...

Great pictures!

Dresden looks like a nice city and seems to have more historic buildings in the city centre than I expected.

Frauenkirche looks great, but Neumarkt looks too artificial to me...Maybe it will look more autenthic in 20-30 years, but now...it is really bad...
