It's actually quite a beautiful building. Get rid of the brown glass and you have a masterpiece.

^ No, you won't. It doesn't show any respect for the historical grid and surroundings.

The architecture of this abolishment is rather secondary.

Having seen it in person, I quite liked the building.

That being said, it doesn't play well with its neighbours across the street.

Just that there is no historical surrounding. There is barely a building around it which is significantly older than the Kulturpalast itself.

Historical grid. The surroundings are made of the historicising, Neo-baroque Altmarkt, the reconstructed Neumarkt and the mainly Renaissance city palace.

It's just out of place there, no need for further discussion. It comes up on almost every page and it's getting highly annoying.

I might create another thread for it.

Does anyone know if the Neumarkt live cam is going to continue into 2013? I hope so as it's a wonderful way to keep up with the reconstruction.

Sure, it will.


After all there's some more years to come with construction along the Neumarkt area (mainly Quartier V/VI).

The Kulturpalast does neither face the Neumarkt nor the castle. And the Altmarkt as well as Wilsdruffer Str are enclosed by buildings of a similar age where it fits in pretty well. The only annoyance is that you can't accept that.

LOL.

Either you've never been to Dresden or you're just blind.

While Altmarkt and even the simpler blocks at Wilsdruffer were mainly created in a whole different style than modernist in the 50s, the Kulturpalast is facing the Castle and its street, Neumarkt buildings and the Johanneum for years and will continue to do so for some time.

Luckily it'll be partly hidden by future buildings, but it's still not an apt building, considering the once dense and urban structure on the location it occupies.

And indeed, the blocks at Wilsdruffer have to go as well. Some day.

The Kulturpalast is straight out of the catalog. It will not make anybody's top 100 list of the best modern buildings. I've seen its "uniqueness" defended by many here but so far no one has justified its intrusive presence in Dresden's old town. Would they be so quick to praise this building if it were one of a chain of 1960's supermarkets in some random American suburb? Here they tear down buildings similar in design to the Kulturpalast all the time.

Any building, new or old, should conform with Dresden's revitalization, and not Dresden conforming with its dreary post-war past. The only nice thing I can think to say about the Kulturpalast are the spectacular views of the Altmarkt and Neumarkt to be had from its curtain windows:

Here is a very cool image of the Neumarkt skyline reflected in the granite wall of the Kulturpalast.

This is a very good picture.
I think it says a lot about the Kulturpalast.

The debate about the Kulturpalast is probably going on as long as the building is still there. Of course the building wouldn't be a huge pain in the ass if it was located somewhere else in the outskirts of Dresden, next to a communist parade boulevard and various dilapidated Soviet styled housing blocks. It might be even a beautiful building in that environment.

Luckily when the Gewandehaus is built, it will be hiding the Kulturpalast from the Neumarkt-area.

^ Lol, the Gewandhaus is dead since ~3 years now. It won't be there.


Instead, the Kulturpalast will be hidden by the quarters around it.

Okay im a bit confused, I thought the Gewandehaus was the name for the building at quarter VI, but it relates to a specific design I suppose. At least in a few years one wont see the Kulturpalast from the Neumarkt anymore.

The Gewandhaus would have been a modern addition adjacent to Quarter VI.

Yes, indeed. What an incredible piece of butt-ugliness. It even manages to make the Kulturpalast look delicate, splendid and well integrated in its surrounding.

Hard to imagine, but we had to fight against this barbarism like lions.

I myself was strolling around Neumarkt, handing out flyers against the Gewandhaus.

I joined several commission sessions with some FDP folks to prevent this crap.
Luckily we succeeded.
