To fit that location, I'll be the one with a Walmart shopping bag, Foster Grants, and white Keds.

It would be fun indeed! I feel like I know quite a few of you from this forum. As an aside, I was in Dresden just when the Frauenkirche restoration got started and a year or so after it was completed and I can tell you it is a much different and better city. Somehow for this American in Florida I feel a strong bond to this city as I think a lot of others on this forum do as well. When I first saw Dresden I was amazed at the damaged buildings having never been repaired since the war. One by one these places have been brought back. I love to see the city heal.

Great news!!

Regarding the old city, last time I was in Dresden, I took this two pictures from the Busmannkapelle:


This Busmannkapelle, was supposed to be the partial reconstruction of this:


However, what was going to be build was only this:


Anyone knows what is the progress of this? As it is located in the old city, I guess it should have a good process as the rest of the Altstadt. Anyone has news?

As far as I know, there aren't any plans to rebuild Sophienkirche. For one, the 1990s building presently occupying much of the site of the church would have to be torn town. For now, we'll have to be satisfied with Busmannkapelle Memorial, whose stones were at least brought out of storage and re-erected on their original site. I know it's a sad substitute for what was there, but if nothing else, they'll serve as a constant reminder of Sophienkirche. Perhaps when present Neumarkt reconstruction is complete, attention will turn to rebuilding Sophienkirche.

Let's talk about the city hall renovation. The city hall is a block of a building that was simplified at some parts or just left untouched, if war damage was not critical.
It's moving!

from 2012 source: bilderbuch, Thanks.

The "renovation" is still going. The whole story is very funny!
It was discovered, that some ceilings inside are about to collapse!
No joke.
By the reconstruction in the 50's and 60's the DDR State was low on material.
Anyway, employees noticed cracks are widening. One of the main hall ceilings had dropped already 40 cm.

The question of bringing some of the facades back to it's original state was put aside 'cause money for the moment.

the 1950's

2014



The original design. The other sides look better, well, closer to the original.
Anyway, there is a debate about putting like original lamps inside or using the original window color scheme. It will get better. The project seems difficult. The Architect Team just got fired earlier for having no effizient cap on costs....

They should clean the tower of the City Hall. I know it turned black because of the sandstone which was used for the construction, but the fire in 1945 is probably also responsible. It is the tallest building in the city and it deserves a "facelift".

You are right. Looks diferent. While some are disappointed not to see more reconstruction, others are happy about little steps inside. Some rooms are getting there ceiling stucco back, while other rooms the original lamps. That is a good thing.

Well, I'm a perfectionist, so I will be happy only when the City Hall gets its original look back.

I can't decide whether I'd prefer to see the City Hall tower cleaned, and thus made lighter, or left in its blackened state as a reminder of the hellish night in February, 1945 that it miraculously survived.

That is a rendering of the Rathaus prior to construction and I am pretty sure that colonnade was never built. The rendering appears to be showing the southern elevation on the left, making the colonnade an element for green space across the street on the east. But I have never seen a photo with this.

The picture actually shows an alternative design for the town hall, which wasn`t realized

Also, the second street facade of Hoym Palace, facing the Rampische, seems to have been scrapped:

I think I've read somewhere that they have to reconstruct Hoym Palais exactly as it was, probably including the side facing Rampische. It's idiotic not to do that. God knows what montrosity will be put in its place.
