It did look pretty horrific in those drawings

Here's hoping that that was just an error on the artist's part.

by now, the plans are firmly in place and the builders will be following the approved architect's plans in every detail down to each brick. What rendering was the last to be publicized?

Of course the plans are already firmly in place.

At question here is the accuracy of the artist renderings of what the final structure will really look like.

This is what the building originally looked like.




The following two images were done by different artists, but both purport to show what the reconstruction will look like when completed.

Notice the clown roofs sitting atop the building in both of these drawings





Like I said, I sure hope these artists were mistaken with their projections.

The top rendering looks as if the artist was trying to make the top floor roof line such that the interior space would have more verticle walls and greater room.

The bottom rendering looks very close to the original roof line, to me, although it does look unbalanced to accomodate the unusual angle of the building perimeter. The dormers also look a bit less substantial than should be.

We'll know in a couple months. Keep fingers crossed!

FINALLY!

Marvellous Quartier VII is about to get off the ground and start hiding the Kulturpalast!

Archaelogists will be in place in the next few days.

Great, the sooner that eyesore disappears, the better.

I don't think they will stop with that. Ever since I met "Dredeners" for the first time in 1989 and many later I have noticed their mourning over their lost city.
It's my firm belief that they will go on rebuilding as long as we live.

2 in 1. New beautiful quarter + hiding the ugly Kulturpalast.

Yes, agreed, but "what" they will be building is another story. At the moment, the strongest force in Dresden is the modernist architectural group who seem to have the upper hand on influencing city politicians and decision makers. While the NeuMarkt is a notable "win" for preservationists and historical architecture lovers, most of the building is internationalist and contemporary. The structures on the south end of Alt Markt, Prager Strasse, new projects all around the outer areas of the inner city are modernist. And these new buildings are designed/intended to last 100 years or more. So, while the desire and energy is to rebuild the city completely is in place, it may only look like Dresden in isolated areas, which means the historic lobby must remain strong. Sorry to say.

These are good news. It appears however that the side of the block facing the Kulturpalast will be rather monolithic and modernist looking. As far as one could judge from that first visualization. Not totally modernist but a bit like those commieblocks lining the Kulturpalast.

If the Kulturpalast is going to stay there for many more decades this might be even a good idea however. As it creates a smoother transition from historic Neumarkt to Altmarkt and the Kulturpalast would not be a totally alien.

The visualization for the "modern" buildings is just a massing. There's no designs as of yet.

Oh, but if they should plan a modern design, could they please scrap it and realize that "place holder" instead? It looks better than many of the modernist cra... masterpieces.

''Masterpieces'' with a huge wink, you say? At least reconstruct a part of the Altmarkt Area too.... Not the Stalinist buildings, but behind the Kreuzkirche or the Stalinist buildings or so.

Love your moniker. Go Illini! Don't forget the Brats. That said, Swiss Hotel is only semi-ugly. It's footprint, perimeter shape, and roof line are in keeping with classic/historic scale and design. Its modernist tweak is acceptable given what could have been the result.

In addition, this facade will be mostly hidden in an alley by the new gem quarter coming along now.

The metal framework for the mansard roof seems to be in place. What do you think: does it look historically accurate or hysterically inaccurate?:
