New fantastic stuff from sandstone works here.

And a nice documentation about the construction until now made by RBB ( Berlin-Brandenburg TV).

The Palace is topped out now! The celebratory act is currently ongoing.

Here you can see the "crown"-like wreath atop the cupola skeleton: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post124730166

There's something awkward in the composition of these facades. They're not balanced and harmonious enough.
A strong heavy plinth is missing instead of these columns and arcads that should be put above on the middle part of the facade and not at the base.

A classic facade must always be "heavy" at the base and go "lighter" as you go up. Here it's the other way.

To me, the lower level columns appear much heavier than the elements above them. The columns extend out from the building while the pilasters above and statues seem light and decorative. In any event, the intent was to mirror original.

I think Rascian is thinking about the rest of the walls and not the main portals

I think Rascian means the order in classicist architecture. The castle however is a baroque building and during baroque times they where a lot more playful with architecture, especially in german states.
You see this when you compare baroque buildings of the Anglo Saxon realm, which are still strongly bound to the classic order.

I always thought, Schlüter's court facades were a bit "odd"... But odd in a good way actually. Very unusual... The main portal for example:



Peculiar how the walls disintegrate and almost completely turn into large window surfaces. Like a green house. The facade basically only consists of columns and glass. Kinda modern. It looks two centuries ahead of it's time, almost 19th century neobaroque.

I agree. I think London's Crystal Palace borrowed from Schluter's large-glass appearance here.

This type of 'green house' treatment that blends with baroque could have been the type of canopy over the castle courtyard at the Dresdner Schloss, making it seem both modern and baroque at the same time.

Regarding the chapel, the windows at the balconied circular walkway are in a circular/curved pattern. But the lower part of the schloss dome was hexagonal in shape. This interior view doesn't seem to align with the outer structure; could this chapel have been in another part of the schloss?
