What a beautiful day outside! I guess I have to spend more time outside.
Welcome everyone. I have some pictures of the FH building here. The building will be torn down. One part is already disabled. The demolition takes some time, since asbestos has been found and also, funny enough some communists demanding the taxpayers to fix the building. After that, the communists demand that they can use the building rent free. So some communists (very small group, 20 People) chained themselves on the FH building. The owner of the building, the university called the police to remove them!


Lovely people. Now some pictures of the FH:





picks from Potsdam-fan!

The already missing part: The new library.

Thanks, frank1204!

A little peek at the "Yorckstrasse"

We are on the roof of the library and looking down at the Yorckstrasse, Platz der Einheit, (ex Wilhelm Platz) The main post building on the right. The post office is in need of a roof reconstruction. The roof is simplified.





The future canal to be and the plot of the past "old Postoffice"on the corner.

Potsdam-fan!

Let`s continue with our Persius mini series!
Believe me, the series will get even better!-)

This is villa Tiedke. Build between 1843-1845 by Persius. Renovated and expandet 1870, 1900. New baths 1960. Location is next the Hunters gate right between the Parks "Neuer Garten" and "Sanssouci". Persius used ideas from Florence and is, if I am not mistaken is today owned by the Parks and Schloesser Potsdam. Parks and Castel Potsdam rents out many buildings to archive the tremendous works to keep the 30 Castles of Potsdam in a good shape, not to mention the lust-buildings in the parks.

Situation 2002!?:



Today. The gray is new from 1870.











Thanks, Spreetunnel!

The next part is our mini series is about this little Kindergarten, called the villa "Tiek". Located "Schopenhauerstrasse 24". Build 1773 for the Wittmeyer family. From 1843 to 1850 the home of the famous poet L. Tiek (1773-1853)
Remodeled by Ludwig Persius 1843 and handed over to the community of the Friedens-kirche as Kindergarten for the church in the year 1874. The Kindergarten is still in this building today.
The Kindergarten 1895:



Villa Tiek 2002:


Fun fact: In the DDR (1948 - 1990) It was impossible to get construction materials. New materials where government owned and used mostly for new builds. there was a severe shortage of about everything. That is why all houses looked like this. Sometimes old houses where cannibalized and torn down to fix neighbor houses.

The Kindergarten today:


On the left is an side entrance to Sanssouci.


Since we have plenty of construction materials available today, the "Adiluka" has been reconstructed:


The statue is the "poesy" from Christian Friedrich Tieck:




In this picture it is easy to see the difference color makes. Plain white dose not cut it in northern Europa in plain weather.


The road to the "Friedenskirche" church. The church owns both buildings

Lets step up the quality of the pictures!
This is a group of buildings belonging to the villa Illaire.
Address is "Am gruenen Gitter"
In the year 1843 Persius became the order from Friedrich the IV to change the building of the former gardener to the residence of the honorable Cabinet minister Illaire and some guest rooms for the court. Different architects where involved like the "Sitbadium" designed by L.F. Hesse. I like the character of the house. Hope You do, too.













Spreetunnel, Thanks!

The next building in our Persius series.
This building was supposed to look like a Chinese pergola and became the home of Uong-bu, a Chinese from Canton Province. The pergola was supposed to remember him of China before he left for his employment in Prussia 1826. The building became this normal looking. Well, I guess one can not have everything. All doe, we have to cover the Chinese village in Potsdam jet in this Threat!
The second floor was added 1872. The name of the house became "Ahok" and was renovated 1998 - 99.






Thank you, Spreetunnel!

We finish our mini series with a industrial building designed by Ludwig Persius!

This is a water pump and unbelievable. So, I had to get the pictures for you!


1843. Painting by Carl Daniel Fraydanck:

modernized 1893 - 95.
1904 major updates.
1937 replacement of the steam pumps by electric motors.
1976 modernization of the pumps.

1986 - 88 building gets facelift.
1992 - Computerized water pumps move in.
