Thank you very much people! Absolutely great to hear this kind of feedback. Yes, I am in Halifax Nova Scotia. The pictures are from people I have kindly asked to provide me with pictures. Those people need to be honored, too. In fact I have some amazing pics, which I can not use right now or show, because I have no approval from those diferent owners just jet. If everything works out, we will have some wow factors!

Thank you. Time is also some issue. I am 33 Years old and have two jobs like everyone on Canada's poor east cost;-)

And now to the news and surprises: I know of at least 10 more reconstructions not jet mentioned in this thread! Lots of pictures to fallow! Stay tuned.

If loading time of some older computer call for viewer pics per page, please feel free to mention it. If someone else like to post some pics, you are welcome.

Yes, of course and sorry Hertog for your long wait. Here from a diferent angle:


It was a timber framed stable for his Majesty's horses. To save money it got one fantastic facade. The building was extremely large and had a gigantic roof on it. The facade actually stands still today. The building is scheduled "somewhat" for reconstruction. There is no investor for it jet. The city also does not know what they want in that building to be build. Last I heard for condos.
"long stable" the name "langer Stall"

It is the long orange building on the left.

Don't worry too much about it - they didn't create the things they've taken the pictures off. So morally they own NOTHING. If you're afraid of a legal action against you that is a different matter.

Like promised, an update on a reconstruction not mentioned here before. The Parks and Garden department Potsdam rebuild with the financial help of the Messerschmid foundation this beautiful lust-building. (means no real purpose) Inside Park Sanssouci. The most important park in Potsdam. Bombed in WW2. Nothing was done after. I think it was the best looking ruin in Germany. It had something. Was used back then in it's heydays for parties, galas and bales. The last reconstruction is going to be the lower ballroom inside. The upper ballroom was original rebuild five, six years ago and can be rented for the same usages as 1772 to be. That was the year Belverde opened 1770 - 1772. The name is FrenchBelvedere and means "beautiful view"

1984


Today, nice


here you can see the wine garden we talked about on the right downwards..... The distant little tower in the back will be introduced later. It is part of the chinese art collection with real china for roofing!!!


Belvedere ......

thank you Potsdam-fan

upstairs. It is all the real material.

winki

downstairs is under construction. I am some glad people are booking. That keeps everything financially afloat. Parks Potsdam had no money for reconstruction. But they look after it now.

I hear people claiming this quite often. It's actually not true.
Etymology:
Latin: bellus fine + vidēre to see
Italian: fine view

The French equivalent would be: "belle vue" Which we know from names like Bellevue Palace, Berlin.

Thanks a lot! With that name, I could find more information, including the architectural competition results: http://www.baunetz.de/meldungen/Meld...m_2904799.html. Unfortunately, none of the entries honour the half-timbered facade, not even with a nod or a detail. This is the winner:


Too bad, as that combination is what made the building interesting to me and 'normal' modern buildings behind a preserved facade are pretty common.

But as long as there are no current plans, who knows. If I grow up to be a rich guy, I'll invest myself.. :P

Restoring a ruin. Funny concept. I look at the pictures and I'm tempted to say I'd hate to see what it looked like before. Only kidding, Interesting place!

Yes, seems odd, but the "ruins" were originally designed as artistic ruins, the purpose of which was to screen off the water tower that supplied Sanssouci and "hide" it.

Parenthetically, in Berlin they are renovating the "ruins" of the Kaiser Wilhelm Church...which in my opinion should not be retained as ruins, but rebuilt.

If they only knew how many ruins they would eventually get without building them themselves...
