That is SOOOOOOOOOO cool! Regeneration of original architecture into it's original form! Wunderbar!

Is this concept only occuring in Sachsen or is it more wider spread nationally???

As an aside, if only Dresden could recreate Prager Strasse!

Most of the reconstructions are in the old "DDR", the eastern part of Germany.

Under-developed regions miraculously saved their old buildings : no dynamism in the 70s, no recontructions. They're now architectural Eden. I bless centralist France for having made Paris a hell and protected the rest of France. The trend is changing though.

I visited Dresden in 01 or 02, so now I'm thinking about visiting it again because lot of things has changed as I see. I wish the reconstruction of Berlin would gone the same way..

Saxony has many beautiful cities and towns. Zittau, Görlitz..

I think in Berlin you will not see this mass reconstructions, Berlin is poor (GDP growth of the last 10 years was 0.0-0.5%).

But Berlin is a totally fabulous, exciting, interesting, hip, and cool city nonetheless. Granted, they've gone the modernist way predominantly, but there are very beautiful sections of Berlin. Regardless of what has not been reconstructed, Berlin is my favorite city for what it does have/offer.

If I want to see great "cobblestoned" beauty I'll go to Dresden or Prague. But if I want a totally exciting, world class city I'll go to Berlin.

Berlin has some beautiful intact neighborhoods, but the city has its problems aswell.
Berlin is an extremely old and historic city, it deserves to be reconstructed. Modern architecture is not timeless in almost every case(and when it is its usually out of fame). Berlin should reconstruct atleast a portion of its core to its original glory. Right now its kind of ugly outside its intact neighborhoods.

You have to admit this is timeless, though:

Having a night walk in XIXth century streets in wintertime is a timeless experience.
Looking at gigantic tins that need expensive lightings to hide their intrinsic uglyness is not.

True. If I remember correctly, the Socialists wanted to tear down Quedlinburg (which is now a World Heritage Site) and rebuild it in a modern, Socialist way. Thankfully they didn't have any money for that.

Hopefully this beauty will soon be reconstructed as well...the British Hotel (construction is supposed to get underway in 08)





Short reminder to illustrate where it will be located. Salomonis-Apotheke and Hotel de Saxe:

it would be grand if they re-built it. Its such a lovely structure.
Do you think that this could influence newer buildings being built around the world?

Are you specifically referring to the British Hotel? Especially in Dresden, people prefer old architecture though. Too bad some of the modernist architects are the most stubborn people around and plenty of politicians are blinded by their promises of building something new and exciting.

Yes, its so beautiful! Its kind of like that here. Many citizens prefered our old german social house from 1892 over our tallest building.
I think modernists are very backward trying to create something timeless without using timeless influence, they will continue to hold the world back instead of taking influences from the past they are built on.

Come on, don't act like an idiot. Every country lost some beautiful cities during the world wars and that was a tragedy whether it was a dutch city, a french, a German or a Polish. But you may have noticed we're living in the 21st century by now and no german here ever bombed Poland and you where never bombed by one.
