¿ Do you know anothers examples of this, been develope in Germany right now or been planed for the next years ?

Potsdam is reconstructing stuff too, City Palace, Garnison Church etc.
Here is a web cam of the Palace

What I really would like to see reconstructed is the Kaiser Wilhelm Kirche in Berlin. That tower from the '60 is something that should disappear. The whole square would benefit from a reconstrusction, there are enough ww 2 memorials in Berlin.

Agreed on both counts.

In my opinion,if they had wanted to reconstruct some buildings in modern way,they should have done that in narrow streets,because on the corners of the streets modern buildings are too notable,and baroque reconstructions should be on the corners,that is my opinion

Yeah, the corrugated tin on the ground floor is really classy.

It would be interesting if someone could dredge up an image of what stood on that particular corner prior to February 1945.

Methinks that whatever it was, it was infinitely more pleasing to the eye.

The ground floor isn't finished yet.


And come on people, it really isn't all that bad. I'm not in favour of the modernist stuff around Neumarkt either, but this definitely is one of the better examples. It will be pretty much covered from most perspectives soon anyway.

As much as I am thrilled - completely - that this project happened at all, I do not think this type of architecture is appropriate in this setting. Why not "do it right", and build the modern style buildings elsewhere? "WHY THERE?" is my question. And what was wrong with the original structure that they would feel compelled to stick this in its place?

There is no such thing as something "too modern for the place". For Otto Von Bismarck's sake: people have been building modern (for their time) stuff in old areas since immemorial ages!

^ That comment doesn't make a lot of sense, since the modernist architecture (or the modern schools) that mainly came up in the 1920s completely broke with everything that evolved before. It was meant to have nothing to do with our century-old architectural heritage. And that's why this kind of buildings doesn't belong there.

We only get stupid modernist stuff around Neumarkt because of the influence of architects, urban planners and nutheaded politicians.

Were these buildings also painted when built or are these garish colours a modern thing?

They were also painted of course. Though a little more dim colours dominated, due to the rather limited techniques.

You can spot various colours on the different famous paintings by Canaletto, for instance.

Dresden, Neumarkt in 1750 (by Bernardo Bellotto)
