Is there a deadline for when all the work on the Neumarkt will be finished?

Read some of the earlier posts. There is a struggle between "Those Who See It Like We Do" and modernist architects and city planners. I agree with you, there seems to be an appalling disregard for both the past (an opportunity to rebuild the Neumarkt area in a faithful manner) as well as the future (where people will have to live with the mistakes of today). Egos and what appears to be a sort of contrariness are also factors. i've said it before, and I'll say it again: what are they thinking?

However, I continue to follow closely this wonderful project, which seems like realizing an impossible dream when I consider my interest in Dresden, which began 30 years ago.

Scaffolding has been removed from the gable of the "Zehmsches Haus":

Looking good. But did they paint it grey? I don't like grey at all, though it was used pretty extensively in renaissance times. But regarding the colors, I don't think they all have to be the original ones if it's for the better appearance.

Great, finally some Renaissance buildings. And you can find grey quite often in Saxony, be thankful that it isn't all white like in Freiberg...

that is not paint, it's the color of the stone and finish material used for the upper exterior floors. I doubt they will paint the stonework.

Beautiful, correct me if im wrong, but it almost looks like very early Baroque outline without the elaborate stonework. Regardless, I love it! Nice work.

I think the style is called mannerist, which is kind of a link between Renaissance and Baroque. The house was built in around 1620.

Thank you for the beautiful pict.

Is the facade made of parts of the originary building or is it completely new?

It's beautiful. I can't wait to see the whole building revealed.

I was in Dresden last week ... I've got some mixed feelings.

The city is nice, but Neumarkt looks terribly fake for me ... I hope time will help ...

Nevertheless, the Dresden boulevards look amazing.

Which "Dresden boulevards" are you talking about?


Actually, there only are real socialist boulevards remaining.

I think you have to try and come back in 150 years or so.

It's not just the dirt and grime of centuries that the buildings are currently missing but it's also the subtle weathering caused by hundreds of years of exposure to sun, wind, rain and frost. You could even argue that the reconstructed buildings aren't for us but for the generations to come. The main thing is that they have been rebuilt, the facades at least.

Somewhat true, but not completely. This comment suggests that for about 300 years, building owners in Dresden did not maintain their structures, both in terms of repairs as well as decorative upkeep. What many people mistakenly do is look at the old photos in black and white and sepia tones and believe that was what the area actually looked like in color too. Not so. Some of the color city scape paintings show the array of colorations in the structures and of course artists usually dramatize the shadows, patinas, etc for creating a more interesting, in their views, painting. But to believe that the beauty of pre war Dresden was in a collection of run-down, battered, and othewise uncared for structures is not the case.
