I hope more cities take an example like this.
Dresden will be rebuilt, no matter how many times it is levelled by idiots,
the cities architecture and soul will keep coming back.

I am curious, what is the of Dresden has been/will be reconstructed?

After Neumarkt, will it be higher than 50%?

Nice shot of Dresden (1910). You can even see Quartier I in the shot

I'm not so sure that over 50% of the city was even destroyed. There are plenty of districts in Dresden with beautiful pre-war architecture but the center of the city was hit pretty hard by the raids in February of '45.

You can make out part of the Neumarkt as well in this shot:



The building in the middle of the shot should be the Johanneum





Frauenkirche



Luther on his pedestal once again

Still, I have a hard time imagining I would see more than 60-70% of the buildings shown here:

Yeah, a lot of that was destroyed. Hard to really guess how much was rebuilt.

Anyway, a nice Christmas time shot of the Neumarkt. In the background you can see Quartier III (the one where there's a lot of construction work going on right now) Shot was taken from the steps of the aforementioned Johanneum:

The core was hit for one reason, moral bombings.
The people we called heros through the war, slaughtered thousands of people, knowing there was no military signifigance within dresden.

This is an absolutely amazing project, especially seeing the pre-war pictures of Quarter 1 !

Have always wondered how this reconstruction gets financed ?
Also, is the remainder of Quarter 3 in process of construction beyond the foundation work ?

Something I too have wondered for a long time, if the funding was easily secured, projects similar to this could be financed and created in London and other cities.

As far as I know, the Quartiers were sold to different investors.

This stuff is amazing! Why can't we do this in the UK?! I mean have you seen the state of our city centres? We actually went around tearing stuff like this down in the 1960's, to replace it with (mostly) utter crap. Shameful

Very fantaboulous thread, indeed!
I'd be interested in some up-to-date pics of the Neumarkt. Does anyone have? I'll go to Dresden this summer (28th July) and would be glad if everything is finished until that

Any reply would be great
How far have the developments gone? When will the Neumarkt be finally finished?

I found some interesting links (albeit only in German) that contain many other reconstruction projects in Germany, even though we are only supposed to discuss Dresden here.

I wish Berlin took more examples like this. Inner city hoods that should be restored to their former glory, are being filled with tasteless modern townhouses that do not respect Berlins architectuall history, or its loss of it.
