Reconstruction project in Stralsund

When I visited the city in summer 2012, I noticed that a large part of the city center was closed due to construction work. I read on the posters on the fences that it was reconstruction of a bombed out section of the city.

I can't find much info on this on the net, but I found this:

http://www.myheimat.de/stralsund/pol...s-d729285.html

I open this thread in the hope that others can contribute.

Here is another link:

Instead of historical reproductions they have constructed buildings that hardly compliment Stralsund's Hanseatic appearance. Most of them are modernist facades that are blandly functional. However, before construction began, a team of archaeologists discovered many wonderful items from a well-preserved medieval craft Quarter. The researchers feel that the brick walls and wooden construction are Germany's oldest building materials. They uncovered things like a split wolf's tooth used as a child's pacifier, a brass whistle, ornate bowls and knives, chamber pots, pilgrim badges, one originating from Spain or Portugal. Also found were amber necklaces, an olive oil jug, and a tile with the portrait of Duke Johann Friedrich of Saxony.

All images were found here: http://www.welt.de/wissenschaft/arti...sgegraben.html

Yet another huge opportunity to create a perfect architectural setting for the next 200+ years and the architects largely blew it.

I agree, the blandness of the designs overall and the near total lack of historic presence for the location is criminal. Why turn a unique city and rich-in-history-location into a non-descript strip mall that looks like it would fit in Topeka, Kansas?

I agree. Provincial thinking.

However, I think many of them can easely be modified later if one decides to give them a more traditional look.

that is a good point. Even the new structures in Dresden which are largely international modernist in appearance are at least in reasonable proportion and scale with the classic buildings. So in the future a dedicated owner could re-face the structures with better designs and materials.

Can anyone make a little summary with pictures of the reconstructions that are going to be done in this city?

Actually, the area didn't turn out that bad. I really like some of the sorta traditional facade designs. Most of the rest is solid postmodern stuff.

And you have to understand, that Stralsund is a rather weak location when it comes to purchasing and economical power. Germany is a rather expansive place to build too. So you'll most probably end up with such not-too-impressive results.

I really wonder why you guys linked to other forums though, while I created a thread at the German forum for this project. I'm regularily visiting Stralsund, as I own estate there.

So let me give you a little roundup.

This is Stralsund in Western Pomerania, UNESCO World heritage old town island at the Baltic Sea. Population of ~60'000 people.

The actual buildings. I have more current photos, but yet have to upload them.

There's some pretty solid Brick Gothic / Expressionism interpretations in between.





But also rather unimpressive bland facades. It's good that the whole quarter is partitioned into small units though. It's not a mall structure at all.

This is better than the empty lot we had before.

Another gable interpretation. These kind of facades can be easily improved later on.












Not the worst outcome, considering anywhere else in Germany they'd probably have gone for a brutal modernist design.

The cathedral looks similar to St. Mary's in Lübeck. I like the Hanseatic church architecture. Does anyone know the name?

Of course, it's St. Nikolai. Imho it's one of the top 3 greatest Brick Gothic churches.

Thanks. I do like those Hanseatic churches. Very beautiful and unique.
