If by "corner building" you mean the one in the last picture, I have to agree. It looks nice.

Not the reconstruction was popular but the booths of the yearly city festival...

I've been following this thread for a couple of years now, and it's wonderful to see what how Dresden has been rebuilt in the past decenium. It's an unique project of mixing historical buildings with more post modern ones. Though I got the feeling most people on this forum are negative about this development of mixing styles. But I think mixing the styles makes it not just a reconstruction but also a 21st century development. When the Neumarkt area is finished, the city centre of Dresden has an unique mixture of styles, from baroque to ostmoderne. I would like to thank everybody who keep making and/or posting photos of this beautiful city!

Do you guys know when the last façade of the Neumarkt will be developed, and what will be constructed? That would make some people here happy because it will hide the kulturpalast.

I think Dresden is the starter of reconstruction in Germany. Since Dresden many buildings are going or are rebuilt in Germany. Like the 'Umgestulpter Zuckerhut' in Hildesheim, the Berliner Stadtschloß and the Potsdamer Stadtschloß and the Garnisonkirche, the Ulrichskirche in Magdeburg, the historical Rathaus in Wesel, the Georgenkirche in Wismar, and an part of the historic centre of Frankfurt am Main. Only in the East like in Frankfurt/Oder and many more they need to rebuild some stuff. I think that Germany is going to rebuild itself again. The only problem is that all these buildings that are reconstructed or are going to be reconstructed cost so much money.

76.05 % voted against the reconstruction some months ago. That's not surprising because Magdeburg is a city full of communists

Magdeburg doesn't deserve such a reconstruction anyway. It completely abandoned almost anything that made it big through history.

So what? And therefore, they should stop the reconstruction of the Berlin Residence Castle? Erase immediately the Braunschweig Castle? And so on...

No, for sure not. Magdeburg should start somewhere, but probably isn't ready for such a big reconstruction yet. Neither the people nor the current politicians really want to revitalize the city's grandeur. It's not the time for Magdeburg it seems. There are other cities that should and can do big reconstructions for now, such as Potsdam, Frankfurt, Nürnberg, Hildesheim, Braunschweig, Wismar, Berlin and Dresden.

amazing

I was in Dresden in 1994. This parcel of land was either an open field or a parking lot. I had been raised hearing from my grandparents, how beautiful this city was. What I saw made me sick. The reconstruction of the frauenkirche hadn't even started.

Just one thought on what others have posted about the modernist construction. It is like what my wise old grandfather said: "if you don't have ugly you can't appreciate beauty'. I am an architect and all I see of the international or modernist style is a building that looks like - they ran out of money. In the states I truely believe we lack the intelligence, skill and ability to create anything like these masterpieces or even preserve our historic structures. There is also a fear of being the first to say the emporer has no clothes. I can't tell you how many times I have sat through a presentation of a pour concrete wall and had the presenter go on and on about the 'beauty' of a cold slab of concrete. Maybe Dresden will start a new zeitgeist were these building can be appreciated. I'm afraid it is too late for the US and even Britain - my family in Britain says that more damage from 'socialist planners' was done than the WW2 blitz. US I have no idea what our problem is. We change our cities like one would change their underwear. Each year the city has a new plan or look and is never thought through.

What always amazes me: In the eras of Baroque and even Renaissance buildings were already quite spacious and generously built, with many, large windows and high ceilings. Nothing like the stereotype you have in mind, of small, cramped huts.
For example look at this reconstruction in Dresden. It's already like a modern midrise, just with lots of facade details:

The Bürger knew how to live properly. It was an era of wealth and splendour.

Nowadays we have way more wealth, but almost no splendour anymore. Quite a sad confession of failure if you ask me.
