Hi SonOfThomp,
In response to your question on identifying the ruined building on the left side of KARASAK's photo of the 1960s Altmarkt; It's the Reformed Church built in 1894 on the Ringstrasse. There's a brief description of it in Wikipedia.

Its really great to see the Neumarkt been reconstructed, this jewel of Baroque should be an example for other German city centers to do the same even in that big scale. Im sure that the increase of tourism and services will be worth to try it , at least reconstruct the facades and the old grid of the old part of the towns.
Do you know anothers examples of this, been develope in Germany right now or been planed for the next years ?

Is not that bad to me, even these modern inserts give the idea that everything is more real and less artificial or Disneyland-like, and are also well integrated

I'm not sure I'd even call it 'modernist'. More like 'featureless'.

Thanks - I can see that, now that you have pointed it out. I would have imagined it being larger than it appears in the photograph.

Modern means nothing more than "current or recent." Modernist means "belonging to the ideology of modernism."

Yessir, I agree with critics towards "fake XX century modernist building" being built in Dresden today. Modernist thing in XXI century looks "fake" not less than rebuilding a baroque palace. With the pejorative fact that they're ugly . It's like falsificating an historical stratification. It would be better rather to build palaces in neoclassical contemporary style, that would be no falsification in that case. There are great architect building in that fully contemporary style today, there aren't many but there are. Of course, major monuments are rightly being rebuilt "like they were/where they were".

It could be said that "modernist" is no longer modern, in much the same way that Art Nouveau is no longer "new". It was a period in architecture that eschewed anything from the past, including aesthetic values, from the looks of it. But unlike Art Nouveau, Modernism hasn't aged well. Ugly glass and concrete boxes blot our cities like bad ideas from the night before

I agree. Bauhaus was around in the 1920s and we haven't progressed at all. Although there are some modernist buildings that can look decent. Have a look at this project from Berlin:





Some of the townhouses in Berlin look good too:

I love those buildings in Berlin! I'm not sure which way architecture is headed in Berlin, but I think it would be great if a lot of the city could be rebuilt (or refaced) in a traditional style. Then maybe, it would be as beautiful as it was before WWII.
