They have pics, it can be rebuilt one day. Look at Dresden, rebuilding after so many years...

c'mon, it's rather stupid to think that some day they would reconstruct all that glory. the political atmosphere in berlin isn't suitable for that. and those former buildings have already been replaced with something else, they are not standing in ruins anymore, rebuilding them seems very far-fetched.

It'll never be rebuilt but most of the buildings built in the last three decades were not conceived to endure time. When the time to rebuild them comes, it might be interesting to repair errors of the past.

Yes plus Berlin is full of modernist.
I don't see why we can't have our own classic revival today.

i would guess that building in neoclassical or barroque or other older styles today would cost more than it did back in those days but glass and steel buildings can also be nice

With today's technology we should be able to mass produce such details with sophisticated wood and stone carving machines. Glass and steel buildings are purely functional. They don't tell a story, they have no local flavor, and above all no soul and become eyesores after a decade.

They were mass produced already in XIX century.

Let's face some destruction again.
Berlin's Brandenburger Tor in ashes. Taken from a panorama installation which was placed in front of the rebuilt gate some years ago.

Berlin again. This time I'm going to show you some historical bridges of the city -
some of them survived 'til today, but most of them are (probably) gone forever.
As well as their surrounding buildings, places and the former urbanity.

(Sidenote: You can look at the URLs to check what these bridges are called)





















Glienicke Bridge (Glienicker Brücke) - connects Berlin and Potsdam. Historically important during the cold war
(spy exchanges), fortunately still standing

East Germany - Baltic Sea coast and more (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern)

Well, I'd like to show you some (former) beauties of my home state in Germany, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
I'm living just 1 hour away of the Baltic Sea, so I often spend time up there -
Especially on the beautiful island of Usedom (touristic information).

The following photographs are colored (photochrom prints). If you want to find more of them, I'd just advise to visit the
Library of Congress and go for something like Germany

It should be mentioned, that pretty much of the following buildings survived the terror of WW2 and GDR as well -
but some are sad losses as well (especially the pier of Heringsdorf and Putbus castle)...
Anyway, just take a look:


Schwerin








Rostock








Now USEDOM: Heringsdorf










Ahlbeck








Now RÜGEN: Binz




Sellin




Sassnitz








Putbus - former castle (sadly torn down by the GDR government)




Lohme area




Chalk cliffs






Stralsund





That's it for now. Hope you enjoyed the lil excurse to my home fields
