I'm not an expert but I think the red stone building in front of the church was the first building to open.

How is it going? I have some picks.
This construction is massive!


Here we have the so called "Stadt Haus" It is part of an ensemble of seven houses. People can rent here for events like weddings or business meetings.
On the left an older build and on the right the Dom


Still under construction. One of the seven houses that make one building to fit better in the medieval "Altstadt" from the looks has a golden roof. Most doors are out of golden metal, too


"goldene waage house"


The opposide


This here is the "Braubachstreet" She is getting along with natural rocks and stones used in construction as well as timber frame


Some houses use concrete for the shell, most don`t


Close by we have here the "Karmeliterkloister"


Wertheim construction. The river used to run here in medieval times. The wall is original, the house on the right a rebuild of 1950`s


This house on the left is the only original in this block and surrounding streets. On the right Wertheim. Unfortunely no reconstruction on the parcel


Thanks user Heimdall from the Architectura Pro Homine.de Forum to give me his pictures!

Seeing this and the Warsaw project gives me some hope and also makes me happy. I am from a part of the world where a lot of destruction has been going on over the last 2-3 centuries. Many cities have been completely destroyed and rebuilt several times over. Not even talking about the earthquakes. However, the greatest danger these days is systematic destruction by the governments, and also lack of money to restore/renovate the old buildings, resulting in poor people (understandably) destroying their old homes and building cheap (but well isolated) concrete houses instead.

I hope, once the peace and stability returns, that the new governments will initiate similar projects.

Large parts of the old towns might be gone, but there is enough left to go by and reconstruct. And in 100 or 200 years, these ''new old towns'' will become genuine old towns for future generations.

Hello everyone!


One problem in some cities is actually too much money. In old times, buildings where remodeled every second generation or so. The appearance of the build was drastically changed in some cases. Or does someone knows, that there are still timberframe streets in downtown Paris? The timber was plastered over. The owners where ether ordered by the government for fire safety or the owners where ashamed of their "old" and cheap houses. Today people have so much money, they just replace the whole thing. In many cases the renovation would have been cheaper.



This is a rendering. In front the medieval town core, between it and the skyscrapers the industrial town core. Behind todays fast growing highrise city core!

Because it is so nice, more pictures. Some timber used are as old as the original houses. The age of the trees used I mean. The entire area has two basements. One for parking and deliveries and one level for the private basements under houses and under streets and squares technical rooms.

The sandstone in Frankfurt area is red!

This is the detail from the "Goldene Waage" A renaissance Spice store and drug store.


Interesting: Before 1790 the buildings had names. Green tree, red house, big stone, fallen angel, blue roof, little berlin and so on. After that numbers where given to all houses. The numbers became too long after a while. House # 12834 was in the west and # 12835 was on the east of town. By the 1830`s the numbers where changed to streets and street names where given. In Germany the even numbers are on one side, 2 4 6 8 and so on, the uneven # on the other side. The system works and is still used. Other countries copied the system.




The Golden Roof is a nice touch. Will be used for events and meetings. The gable is glassed and looks of the cathedral


"Goldene Waage" in front. The people commissioned the first build moved from what is today independent Netherlands to Frankfurt back then, because of competition pressure. The build in the right is the red house. Originally used as meat shop and painted with blood every three years in red and called red house therefore. The build was used as meat shop for 400 years and will be home to a meat shop again. The new owner is related with operators that used to own the old "Red house" "Roth Haus"!


Underneath the golden roof: This will be open to the public with no charge. Those walls are from the Roman Empire that started the city. The square nearby is therefore called "To the Romans"


Goldene Waage from 1619. The owners moved from todays independent Netherlands to Frankfurt
winki

The tree is German Oak. German Oak grows slower than American Oak. The tree used for this piece from before the year of 1619, when the first Goldene Waage was build


The sandstone is red here in the area!




Still "Goldene Waage" "Golden Scale", because of a arm with scale on the exterior




high ceilings

I believe that's not entirely true. While many buildings were renovated to suite the style of their owner's respective epoch, it has little do to with both Paris and Frankfurt. The reconstructed structures are actually examples of such style changes, as the timber is also plastered over.

Frankfurt has lost the vast majority of it's old buildings due to war bombings. Often other old buildings were also demolished after the war due to the rise of modernism and the 'need' to get away from Germany's past. That almost never has anything to do with havong too much money, especially in war-destroyed Germany.

In Paris, M. Haussman actually did demolish most of the city and replaced it with what we know today. However, those buildings were not Timberframe houses, as Paris was in another cultural sphere.

Hope you all have a nice day! There is so much going on, that we need to focus more on Frankfurt

There was open construction day and the re-construction Association invited the media for a walk around. The pictures are from that society.




Haus "Reebstock" The double story wood gallery open to the inner court!


"Junger Esslinger" The brick will be plaster over


This is the director of the association BFF. Mrs. Leineweber. She holds handmade "Ziegel" aka bricks. Made the original way by hand.


The inspector had some headaches because of fire. Approved anyway, because German oak doesn't fire easy from start


House "Klein Nuernberg"


Director from "Pro Altstadt E.V." is very, very happy. Her association is the main pusher for the project.


This street is very important for the country: Every new Kaisers first way was down this street to this dome after the coronation. People rented window spots and travelled far to see the new Kaiser on his coronation. Germanys very first elected Parliament from at that time different independent Countries of Germany come here together. That was 1848, 300 meter from here, because of the history of incinerations in that dome!


2000 years old. With in floor heat!

source Mathias Mund, from BFF

inauguration or coronation

I don't think the emperors would have liked to be incinerated.

Pictures! I have pictures!

Who wants some, who like some?

Some of the not-reconstructions are being pushed to be a little more traditional by demand! So the contractors are fallowing suit!





Concrete will be pored


The letters are 9.50 m long and 60cm high

The saying says: "The new crumbles and old live blooms out of ruins" . Because of the re-construction 70 Years later

It's a reference to the pre 1945 building which showed the phrase "Das Alte stürzt [...] und neues Leben blüht aus den Ruinen." a Quote from Schiller's Wilhelm Tell.

Looking good if a little modern. Better than what was there since the 50s anyway.

Still, no Frankfurt old town will be complete until they sort out the Salzhaus.
