Beautiful renovations in Vilnius! I just love the fact that they didn't add some modernist piece of crap to the Kempinski Hotel and built a more classical looking building instead!

The problem here is that everything we see is false or a copy.

My problem is that to many people think this is to make everything fake or copy......

They are rebuilding/reconstruction this buildings because they miss them in the streets of the cities or villages, or are destroyed in an earthquake, tsunami or other disasters like an war.....

Geez, please read some comments at the Dresdner Neumarkt pages or else, there you'll the same answer

Do people in Italy also consider a Monte Cassino cloister a false building or copy? I doubt this. Btw most building renovation in this thread are XIX buildings that didn't suffered during WW2.

While other cities revitalize, Warsaw's ideologically driven office of conservator is allowing for the destruction of heritage:

Now - these historic balconies are being removed.

Those revitalizations in Poland are great.

I bring you some photos of some works in my little town.
Are the enhancement of a medieval castle buried.

Castle of Miranda de Ebro (Spain).

Foto Rafa Varón. Lienzo Este a Barbacana.


Aquí el aspecto ya es de fortaleza. Deduzco además que el nivel del piso es el que sea ve ya aplanado.

Cubo de la Barbacana desde el fondo del Foso.


Puerta, Foso y Cubo.


El fondo del foso es más bajo que el piso del resto de la barbacana. No se si llegarán a los dos metros, pero se aproximan segurao.

Cubo, Puerta y Foso


Aquí empezamos a ver el pavimento definitivo en la esquina inferior izquieda... parece un aglomerado de áridos. La puerta está dividida en dos como era originalmente, aunque es obvio que la zona estrecha es completamente inservible. Empezamos con las preguntas... ¿esas canalizaciones rojas para que sirven?... parecen eléctricas.

Foto Rafa Varón. Cubo de la Barbacana


Esta es una foto genial. El Cubo de la Barbacana está finiquitado. ¿para que es esa caja?... ¿va a tener alguna iluminación especial tipo led o algo así?...

Lienzo Este interior. Avanzados los rellenos y pavimentos.


Zona conflictiva en el foro... jaja... el zig-zig del muro este. Pues bien, yo que era un esceptico nato y aun no pareciendome la cremme de la cremme, ha quedado muchísimo mejor de lo que esperaba. El camino en zig-zag es menos exagerado de lo que pensé al principio. Por mi parte aprueba la solución.

Lienzo Este interior


Batería del Rey.


Lástima no haber aumentado en uno o dos sillares la altura de la batería del rey para ganar uniformidad con el resto del lienzo. Mi pregunta en este caso tiene que ver con el cierre de seguridad de la ventana del suelo. Ahora hay unas maderas, pero ¿ahí a algo en concreto para cerrarlo o no?...

Lo dicho, genial reportaje.

Keyword here is "university". The reach of the radical modernists and "authenticity extremists" seems to not extend far beyond universities and professional architects however.

Wow, that's a silly thing to say. These are restorations, not reconstructions. So how are they "false" or a "copy"?

^ Lol, indeed. But I suppose he's saying we should rot modernist crap, which is the best thing to be said in this thread so far...

Berlin should take an example in this, it suffered so badly from deplastering work (Entstuckung), sadly. That makes once grand, opulent and nicely detailed buildings plain, bland, exchangeable and ugly.

I agree! I'm more excited about seeing Leipzig and Dresden than I am about seeing anything else! Although I happy to get to see Berlin as well.
