Does anyone know what kind of software they use to draw such building designs? I'm interested in designing similar buildings and creating similar renders. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.

You're probably correct; I was just recalling a comment from a tour in the structure, but upon closer review of the statistics, I can only see that the dome was once the largest north of the Alps. Sorry for the mislead.

As far as I know they use Maxxon Cinema4D...
But I dont know if they use the Vray plugin. (but i guess not judging from the renderings)

What about St.Paul's Cathedral in London (h:111m, l:158m, w:75m)? Les Invalides in Paris is pretty impressive too.

Btw, Dresden is a lovely city...

I think it's the largest baroque stone dome north of the Alps.

Good efforts, Dresdians. But the Neumarkt is just a tiny spot. The castle, the Frauenkirche and some rebuilt stuff. Unfortunately the rest of Dresden is filled with commieblocks and new ugly and cheep-drawn buildings.

Some rebuilt stuff? Just a few buildings in a tiny spot?

Have you seen the Hofkirche? The Zwinger? The Opera? The Brühl Terrace? The Johanneum? And those are only a few of the famous monuments and buildings. There is reconstruction everywhere - including many residential and commercial structures. All you have to do is read a few posts on this thread.

Have you visited Dresden? It is very beautiful - and getting more beautiful.

A tiny spot....

Yes, I was there and was disappointed. In fact, the «Neumarkt», the «Zwinger», Sempers operahouse, the castle, the Hof- and the Frauenkirche etc. is just the «spot» you see in here:

The rest around the «Inner City» are unfortunately commieblocks, wasteland and cheap new stuff.

This picture is from 2004 or even earlier. There has been done a lot of work since then.

True, but the area he marks does more or less cover the extent of all historic or rebuild buildings mentioned earlier: Hofkirche, Zwinger, Opera, Brühl Terrace, Johanneum and Neumarkt are all in this enclosing.

This does not mean, however, that I agree with his statement that the rest 'are unfortunately commieblocks, wasteland and cheap new stuff.' To the north, across the river, you'll find a large area with more historic buildings. This area was spared much destruction and is therefore much more a 'complete ensemble'. When I visited Dresden I loved the historic / restored centre, and I also love the reconstructions going on around the Neumarkt, but the Neustadt was maybe even better, because it was a great surprise to me - or maybe because of all the lovely bars around there .

Did you even check the Neustadt area on the other side of the Elbe? It's inner city, too.


Apart from that, Löschwitz, Blasewitz and the vicinity of Dresden are among the most beautiful cultural landscapes of Europe.

But it's true, the rest of inner Dresden needs more efforts in urban rebuilding.
