Ludi, you are much to fast! D: I really appreciate your pics though! Some are really nice.
I guess, we can open this thread to everyone now, who likes to share pictures of historical architecture and monuments in Berlin. But please try to post high quality pics. That was my initial intention for this thread.

Sorry, to be so frank, but that is complete BS!
No reconstruction is made of fibre glass. They are all made of high quality, solid materials. In the past, where most recontructions were made, often with the original materials and methods and spolia. Nowadays concrete is also often used. But what's wrong with concrete? Even the Romans built with that material. Furthermore most historic buildings you see in Germany are not complete reconstructions from scratch. In more than 90% of all cases parts of a building were still standing. It fortunately (or unfortunately?) were mostly the interiors, that were lost due to bombing. The outer shells were most of the time still standing.

You are perfectly right.
Even completely undamaged buildings usually don't preserve much more than their basic structures over the centuries.
It's the nature of buildings that they are not only there for being watched but mainly for being used.
Just think of water pipes, electrification, insulation etc.

The building might seem not that big at first sight, but there is a large extension on the back, built in a very different style of architecture:

A Gorgeous building! It was built 1887–1891 by August Busse as the Imperial Patent Office. Here's a some more detailed shot of the beautifully ornate entrance:

I agree. The thread should be paralleled by another Thread "Lost Berlin historical architecture"
