This type of vault can also be seen in Vladislav Hall in Prague's castle:

Yes, it would really be worth to reconstruct it. As far as I know there are very few "Schlingrippengewölbe" of this form preserved. Other examples I know are the St. Annenkirche in Annaberg-Buchholz (Sachsen/Saxony), Schlosskirche in Chemnitz (Sachsen), Pfarrkirche in Weistrach (Niederösterreich), Pfarrkirche in Königswiesen (Oberösterreich) and the famous buildings of Benedikt Ried like the Vladislaw Hall in the Prague Castle shown above.

Indeed. A reconstruction of the Erasmus Chapel definitely is a must for later generations. I'm fine with the Stella facade, as long as it's seen as a temporary structure for maybe 2 decades.

Number 2 is the position of the Erasmuskapelle here:

Berlin's Phoenix arising from the ashes!

The construction site is very busy now, even faster than its schedule:

Time to get really euphoric!

While it's not going to be perfect, it'll be an enormous boost for Berlin's war- and GDR-ridden center. And for Germany as a whole.

It is time for euphoria! Berlin has emerged as the cultural, spiritual, and social capital of Europe, once again, and it's time that the physical aspects reflect it's leadership position as well. I hope the Lustgarten landscape is planned with a nice renovation, too.

There are two cities I love to look at pre-WW2 - my own capital, London, and Berlin.

Berlin pre-WW2 looks like it was magical (and in my opinion, so does London ).

People go on about the beauty of Paris and Rome, but I reckon Berlin back then was well up there too.

I hope some day, the Germans put it back to as close as possible to a pre-WW2 state, and if any nation can, it's them.

I can only hope their enthusiasm rubs off onto London.

You will soon find out that there aremany other cities destroyed during the war that were real gems before. Take Nuremburg and Dresden as examples.

Yes, I've seen many in Germany and Poland, and a few in the UK too.

From my own knowledge of what happened in the UK, a lot of the bomb damage has been used as a ploy to grab land, demolish buildings and (as in the case of London), been used as a smoke screen to clear some very large tracts of land.

The current pace of the Stadtschloss reconstruction is quite astonishing:

Craneopolis Berlin!

This would have made the castle even better: Julius Raschdorffs design of an addition to the castle (1887). The Tower might be somewhat over the top, but it still looks great!

Or maybe just finishing Schlüters design:

why wasn't the tower and eastern elevation built in 1887? The Hohenzollerns surely had the money.

I think the top reason was historic preservation...
