A row of buildings actually. Like Plögerscher Gasthof (Schloßstraße 7):


Full resolution (source, really great animations!) / Mitteschön

See old photos and preserved statues here: https://storyofpotsdam.wordpress.com...seine-figuren/

Seen from Steubenplatz towards Alter Markt / City Hall / St. Nikolai and City Palace (Stadtschloss) to the right, to be reconstructed buildings to the left:

Comparison: Today vs. ~2019 (the modernist atrocity of the FH Potsdam will be torn down 2017)

Can you hear the music?

A booming symphony, indeed. Beethoven's 5th.

I wonder if 1918 had not happened, would the Hohenzollern have continued to build baroque and Grunderzeit palaces or would they have build a Bauhaus style home in the royal park at Potsdam?

Unlikely. After the war, people tried 5 different styles. Bauhaus was one of them. The creators (came from Hungary to Germany)come from a group called "Frankfurter school" and had socialist world government in mind. To ease the pain of giving up the feel of local belongings, it was argued to replace local construction habits with something simple, emotionless, easy to apply (for the third world, too) and low prized for social government manufacturing. Some had the re-use of square houses of the first Israel 2000 years ago in mind. With Hitler they had to jump all over the world. In the 1930`s capitalists from the USA jumped on the wagon for the idea of eliminating unemployment by making cars, chairs and also houses worth wile for 15 - 30 Years before demolition.

I like how Potsdam, unlike much of Berlin and Dresden, is embracing the original classical architecture without as much modernist junk shoved into each redevelopment. Great job Potsdam, and thanks to everyone for the great pictures!

I would like Potsdam to stay true to its past and build what was once a beautiful compliment to the vision of the architects of an earlier period !

How about Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, Ode to Joy? I can hear that one better when I look at the future picture. P.S. I always enjoy your comments KeepthePast.

Really encouraged by what is happening in Potsdam, it's going to look amazing and rescue a stunning architectural ensemble from oblivion. I really hope the Garrison Church can finally be secured too, it seems the signs are looking hopeful, but I'll be much happier when that tower starts to rise again, and reclaim its rightful place in the city's skyline.

Looks like I may have to delay any plans to visit the city for a few years yet, but I know it'll be well worth the wait! :-)

Hi,

some new Panos around the Garnisonkirche are now online on Arstempano. May be a little bit important: the small Townplace on the eastside from the church. We must see what is happen in the next years. I was reading that they want cut the "Platte" on this place to have this Townplace again. But before it is important: The reconstruction of the Garnisonkirche!



Garnisonkirche / Langer Stall

View from the Lustgarten to Breite Straße / Garnisonkirche

View from the Plantage to the Mammonstraße (on the right Side = Garnisonkirche)

in the next weeks we are making a litte go around (360° Panos) inside of the church!

I love that building with the imposing facade and half-timbered sides. Can you tell me more about it?

I like to give some pictures to the international community. I still talk to some other photo holders for usage of their pics. Enjoy:





The Tree has a very special meaning: It was the tree, where people put letters for the king in the branches.





The last image is from the friendship island
Thanks for the pictures potsdam-fan from the forum Architectura pro Homine

Buildings are called: Barberini, Chiericati and Pompei. The originals are in Italy. Well, they do look different in Italy. "Inspired" copies so to say. And now we copy copies here!-)

Like to explain: Potsdam was and still is Germany's secret capital. Many international agencies and organisations like the red cross are located here, not Berlin. The town original was build to suit the taste of her majesty. Every street was royal approved. Owners got lots of money donated to them in return.

Palais Barberini:


Palais Chiericati:



I like the colour


The columns for the upper floor. Interesting!

pics from user potsdam-fan!

There are other reconstruction projects, too.
Another nice thing are renovations. Under the DDR many mansions had fallen to dust, but new or old owners putting everything in there power to save them!!

This is villa Henkel. The roof was about to collapse!



pics are from potsdam-fan
