Great Work, Now these buildings look new and sparkling, but in a couple of years their look will be better

What happened with www.youngbin.info?

Great video, well, reconstruction is very similar to original... It will be better then it is , that is out of question.

I have been following this blog for a little while and the reconstruction is certainly impressive. As a group the buildings look very good, but much of the detail looks poor. Perhaps the architects have little experience of working with old buildings, so do not understand traditional detailing? The roof tiles are particularly unattractive - all of them look to be machine made and are completely flat and without colour variation. They will not weather like handmade tiles and are a missed opportunity.

At lower level the render is invariably very flat and characterless and most of the mouldings appear to be stuck on, rather than moulded from the render itself. The best buildings are the most elaborately detailed, the worst are the ones with very flat facades.

On the whole, a ramarkable effort, but let down by poor attention to detail.

There is a lot of nice designs in the video, but there is to much modern and to less reconstruction. Not that the buildings they are going to reconstruct don't look good, but the modern designs are like a mix of a failing Hundertwasser building and Traditional reconstruction......

But are they also going to reconstruct the Salzhaus on the Romer? Would be nice if that building is going to be there again, was such a nice building

Oh...shit! ...was litterally the first thing I thought.
Hands down, this is the worst facade of the whole Neumarkt so far!

the funny thing is the ugly reminds me of 50' and 60' reconstructions in Germany. In that way it fits well in a reconstructed inner city

Yikes. I have seen worse but it just looks like some sort of bland retirement home/hospital.

The good thing is that this side of the building is really very hidden. The "normal" inhabitant / tourist won't even see it on his "normal" route during the city. What I mean is that you have the choice if you want to see it or not. Nevertheless this side is bullshit, especially the windows.

Yes. We have to bear in mind that sculptural details carved out of stone do represent a certain cost in this day and age. It makes sense to lower these costs by not bothering with them on the sides of buildings that will not be much exposed to the general view.

Don't be bothered about that facade, it's one of the best hidden ones in the area.

I'm much more worried about all the grey tones in the new quarter and that commieblock-like white piece of crap (Quartier III) we have to face on the last pic.

Yeah...but it has not that negative effect from this angle, I think. Well it definitely has no positive effect either but it is not ugly. It is just neutral because you can't see the ugly windows.

I'm more displeased with that narrow glass building in the last photo. What exactly is the point of doing it in that style, in that spot? It almost seems as if they are trying to give Dresden the kind of look of a city that was never destroyed, but grew organically from 1945 onward, with modern buildings nestled between older traditional buildings. This is completely beside the point. Dresden's destruction is part of its history, as is its ressurection. It shouldn't be trying to give itself an "old mingled with the new" look in the Neumarkt, at least that's my opinion.
