This building is rather made from scratch, so there's no revitalisation. Wrong thread, rychlik

No, actually you were not. Revitalization in a city does not just refer to restoration, that is not the meaning of the word, although I appreciate that most of the posts on this site concern restoring and rebuilding rather than total new builds and designs.

Woah, great work Bucharest. The buildings are great and so unmistakably "Bucharestian"...
I like Bucharest cause it has a very recognizable architecture, that gives a strong identity to the city.

Many cities in Central Europe are to much copy-cat when it comes to 19th architecture.

Indeed, great job again Leipzig!


But once we look "over the pond":

Many americans sadly aren't aware of their great historical heritage...

well then you don't want to know how magnificent Detroit used to be. Masterpieces were torn down to be replaced with parking lots simply because owners didn't want to pay property taxes.

Yes. This was taken in 2011 so I am sure it is done now.

Yes, you're absolutely right about Detroit although there are a lot of wonderful buildings still there some of which of course are in bad condition. Unfortunately it's not alone, New York has also lost far too many important buildings, Penn Station, Savoy Plaza, Biltmore Hotel, Ambassadors Hotel,Astor Hotel on Times Sq.,Singer Bld., Roxy and Capitol Theatres to name some of the best, but it's probably not so noticeable in NYC as it's such a huge metropolis.

but even such a huge metropolis should remember its past, its roots, its history...if i see pictures of Berlin (or Frankfurt, Dresden, Stuttgart, Cologne or any other bigger German city) before WWII i realize, that we lost so much of our heir...and i just can´t compare them with Rome, London, Brussels or even Vienna, cities which just grew "naturally" in the last decades, without devastation (hmmm...okok, maybe Paris is a bit special, because the whole city was rebuilt in the 19th century, there is nothing left from medieval Paris) ..so cities like Detroit or NYC should keep their few historic buildings. a lot of european cities right now rebuild their old buildings and squares...exspecially in Poland and Germany.
it´s a pitty for example to transform a beautiful theatre like the Michigan Theatre in Detroit into a parking garage... or replace the Singer building in NYC with a boring box...the Singer would be a tourist attraction now...
