I'm sorry: it's not a question of whether the Kulturpalast has been rendered aesthetically out-of-place by the reconstruction of the Neumarkt. That is polite and accommodating, but cannot survive even a cursory reality check.

THAT THING IS SIMPLY UGLY.
Some things in this often muddled and confusing world are just that simple.

No, they're actually preparing the construction site there. Machines were at sight yesterday.

It's a cupola
But honestly, the Kulturpalast is not ugly, it's just built in the wrong place. It would be perfectly suited to be used as a shopping centre somewhere in a suburb.

is there anyone who could explain to me how all this development were treated in terms of ownership? what happened to the fact that someone was owning the buildings that were destroyed in the war, and if buildings were destroyed at least the ownership on the land was still present?

I would imagine that most property was expropriated by the communist government of Eastern Germany.

Love this Thread. This is my very first post at skyscrapercity!

I noticed that there are not many construction pictures posted at the moment.
There is massive work going on at the city hall and inside the schloss plus
its courtyard. Not to mention reconstruction and revitalization in the suburbs!
To my knowledge there putting five castles back to use surrounding the Neumarket in a radius of 20 Km
Of course this thread is about the Neumarket. But maybe some before/after pictures of the other places, if anyone got some?

I can`t get pictures. But I like to answer some questions other members have form now on!

That`s actually a funny story. This moldy piece of bread happened by accident!
After the regime changed the plans 20 times, they came up two identical twin
buildings. (Before 1955 plans called for typical Stalin Neoclassical building. At first they had skyscrapers like in New York in mind, but had no money.) One as Theater and Opera, the other eval twin as a Parkhaus for cars.
Of course you guys know the lack of money in the DDR. Or actually money, they
could print. But they could not print construction material. So the project collapsed and they stopped after only 20% of the project completed!
So, that funny roof is an emergency cover!!

The east German Government "DDR" just took over the ownership of the land.
After the "Wende" 1990, witch is the German shortcut for "The fall of the Berlin wall and reunion," they made the decision to to make a cut by the year 1950. Everything taken before 1950 stays with the government or the new owners. (Oddly enough: The DDR sold some properties even it was a socialist regime!) Everything after can be claimed back with few exemptions.
So, the city sales the plots like a developer and uses the money for power, water, media connections or to pave the road. That way Dresden is loosing no money.

I actually find it very much needed buildings to brake the monotony of one generation of buildings.

I do adore a copper roof (probably because there's plenty of them in Helsinki). It is too bad you wont see it too good from the ground level.
Though I will admit that it's in the verge of looking cheapo 60's building. Could be a bit more clean and throw that red brick bottom away. Hopefully this reconstruction will deliver that.

While I do see some value in the 'breaking of monotony', I would prefer to do so with something aesthetically pleasing or harmonious. Doing so with the Kulturpalast is like relieving the boredom of a rainy Sunday afternoon by driving a salad fork into your thigh.

Can anyone tell me how the restoration of the castle courtyard is going? It's been a long time since I saw progress shots of the decoration.

Seems that they have started again working on Dresden. More info in Bausituation: http://www.bausituation-dresden.de/ (and if any German want to translate a bite an clarify us, it would be great)

Pictures (from Bausituation):




Personally don't like the modern part... at all...


And a little bonus took on 2011 by myself on Altmarkt: https://www.google.com/maps/views/vi...89010633732994
Hope next time I come looks really different the left part!

God damn modernist bullshit ****! They need to take that shit somewhere else. What in the hell are they freaking thinking? They have turned to shit with modern crap what could have been one of the greatest modern restoration projects since Warsaws Old Town was restored in the 50s.

Well, it's a side alley. It's nothing that pops the eye with pleasure, but it's not something we need to go on a rage about. There was nothing really interesting prior to WW2 either, rather bland buildings. That being said, I badly wish they decide to avoid the stupid grey colors.

Corner buildings should always be classical/replicas I think.
