I hope too. Though reconstructing art nouveau from scratch is not an easy task. Maybe some details were spared?
And the place is occupied by another building, isn't it?

Exceptionally beautiful cityscape of Frankfurt am Main, which gives a pure and whole image of old Germen architecture, the so-called half-timbered style*, with its curious high roofs in which many small windows are mounted. Our picture was taken on the corner of Domstrasse and Braubachstrasse. Many times before, we have shown multiple details of Frankfurt in our magazine, so we assume this city is well-known by our readers.
* The caption actually uses an older Dutch term, vakbouw, that roughly corresponds with German 'Fachwerk'. The current Dutch term is a literal translation, vakwerk

The city hall of the former empire city of Frankfurt am Main. This city hall was built between 1405 and 1413, was altered and expanded multiple times and was restored in the 19th century. The Emperor's Hall on the first floor contains life-sized images of the German Emperors, next to this is the Eloctoral Hall where the city council holds its meetings.

Interesting. There is actually a separate thread for Frankfurt on this forum.

Wow, so many historicist and Art Noveau beauties, it's unbelievably sad that most of those do not exist anymore. Although I doubt it, I hope that some Polish and German cities will decide for reconstructing most of what they'd lost, especially smaller and medium-sized cities, since that would help in boosting their tourist offer and would give them their identity back, something that's pretty much vanishing in this globalised world. When it comes to bigger cities, some of them should also aspire for as much reconstruction projects as they can get, although I don't see many of them completely restoring their face, especially Berlin, Warsaw or Frankfurt, cities that now have a new identity, but cities like Dresden should give it a try since they still have their prewar identity attached to them, although much watered down, and they would really benefit from it. Also, we now have all kinds of machines that can help us restore those buildings cheaper and faster than ever (erbse, you've seen the proposal in New York for that giant Neo Art-Deco skyscraper with huge ornaments, I doubt they would make them with their bare hands, something like that would really be helpful).

Does anyone have pics of the Obermunster Church in Regensburg? It was pretty much the only cultural thing destroyed in WW2 in the city (and was pretty much just pure bad luck from a random bomb or two dropped). They decided not to reconstruct it for whatever reason.

All I can find online is this



And I took some photos of the ruin while I was there last year (linked for huge)

Any pre-war pics, especially of the interior, would be great. I'd be very interested in seeing what the fresco over the altar looked like (remains in my pics). No information online as far as I can tell.

Thanks!

Excellent set of photos. Thanks Ludi.

While wonderful to look at and enjoy, it's ever so painful to know that such grand and great structures were blown up and pulverized...without much effort to reconstruct them. Mankind and culture are surely victims along with the loss of these buildings.

A point of reference: the Tietz building was a department store, today under the name of Hertie, shortened version of the founder's name Herman Tietz.

It makes me sick to my stomach. All these stunning buildings with its stunning interior and furniture. What a CRIME destroying this beauty with bombs. It makes no sense.
Berlin needs to rebuild more and tear down some of those nasty post war buildings.

Prussian State Libery could so easily been saved, it wasnt totally destroyed, it was damaged. Can even see those beautiful lamps still standing there after the war, I really hope these are saved.

Old Berlin will forever bee in our hearts.

BTW Is Grunewald a suburb of Berlin? Judging by the houses I take it the rich people in the 1890's-1910's started moving out of the city to build big houses instead of Wohnhaus? Had not heard of it.

You could add many more, for instance The Berlin stock exchange (Berliner Børse)
