No. The political decision sadly shifted towards keeping that thing in place.

Why would they keep it? It's hideous.

Look back and see lots of discussion on this in earlier posts. The basics are that the original architect and builder of the Kulturpalast fought to keep his "creation"...and won. He had gathered much support from both private concerns and city officials, claiming that the building has historic and architectural value, and hence should not be removed. Of course, the city had difficulty defending plans for demolition and restoration due to high costs. Even ideas to simply remodel the exterior to bring the structure more in keeping with the goal of recreating the NeuMarkt and AltMarkt into their baroque pasts were overruled. The architect and his gang of visual terrorists won on every level, and the world will have to suffer through a few more years (decades?) having to look at this abhorrence. Maybe these guys are really biologists and felt that every animal needs a hole at the end of its alimentary canal.

Something along those lines, yeah...


Anyway, please refrain from starting another Kulturpalast discussion page after page!

I'm sick and tired of it. We'll have to live with the junk someone left there for at least another decade.

Thank you!

Photographs of excavated cellars in Dresden always make me sad.

Yes, I have the same feeling. Those cellars were literally death chambers during the bombings. I wonder if the construction/excavation crews ever find human remains or signs of other items one might find in buried bomb shelters--clothing, jewelry, dishes, etc.

There already is. Two modern portions, in fact. One is the Innside hotel which is very nice inside.

Thanks! Roof proportions of Rampische 33 look right, it was only slightly steepened by some cm, it seems.

yes, however, the roof line at 31, the next section, looks as if they are flattening it from the peak of 33. The result appears to be a point created at 33 that flows into a flat or different treatment next door.

Are those old cellar foundations stable enough to hold new buildings? I suppose that new buildings will be built from lighter materials then the old ones though...

one of the pitty things about old buildings is that you can't always built in new utilities, like RAINWATER PIPES. This is a new building, it could have been solved better than this.
Or is it for the authenticity that they even emulate the bad solutions of the past

Regarding the above image, what's going on with the upper plane of the roof, 33 Rampische Strasse?

What about that ugly building to the far right of the quartier, are there any plans to demolish it?
