Narrenhäusel Project

The Dresden-based company Max Wiesner intends to rebuild the Narrenhäusel, but needs the support of Dresdners and esp. the politics.
Another more distant render of the Narrenhäusel project to the right of Augustus Bridge
(sign the petition for its reconstruction here):


by ArsTempano

Original colour photographs of 1938:

Bonus: The Neustadt City Hall 'right behind', original colour photo from around 1940 -
its tower is supposed to be reconstructed first and placed at the square in the front:

Quite right. I love how that house looks, slightly off but still very much Dresden. Let's add a signature.

Erbse, why do you always have to get polemic about people who dont share your opinion? Calling a monumental entrance to the Altstadt with a second Blockhaus "Skopje style" is just an offensive missleading and disgusting comment with the only goal to denigrade my post

Don't take it personally. And don't offend me if you feel offended either ("...why do you always have to get polemic...").

I've re-read on the Blockhaus and you're right in that in the original 18th century plans of Zacharias Longuelune, an almost identical building was planned for the opposite side. With a giant statue on top though (so yeah, a bit Skopje style indeed ). And it applied only for these initial plans, with the Blockhaus supposed to have a pyramid-like top:

I know my english is horrible, but I think it is possible to understand ;-)

The Narrenhäusel a counterpart for the Blockhaus? I think the Narrenhäusel was a little garden palais. Its dimensions seemed larger than they were. The height of its gutter was only about 9 meters above the sidewalk of the Augustusbrücke. The buildings behind the Narrenhäusel will be much larger - as they were before 1945. Furthermore, that buildings will obviously be built in modern style. That is what I know.

Please note the following screenshoots from Arstempano with the Narrenhäusel without any buildings in the background. I think everyone can form his own opinion.

Regards Andreas

Are there any news about Quartier III/2? It's been almost three months since that meeting was held.

On an old picture of Dresden I saw this tower/building that I didn't know was there before the war.

Could someone tell me more about it.
I'd love to see it reconstructed, but I think there's already a building on the place.

It actually was a neo-baroque power station for electricity. I agree that was a stunning beauty and rooted for its reconstruction several times already, just because the impressive historical Dresden skyline could immensely profit from another tower at this location (same for the Gothic Sophienkirche). Chances are very slim of course.

It was right behind the Semper Opera (west of it), close to the Elbe River. I've got aerial views showing its position and will post them here.

There's a German article about it at Wiki: Staatliches Fernheiz- und Elektrizitätswerk (Public District Heating and Electricity Station)

The building was designed by William Lossow and finished in 1901. Lossow's office later designed other important infrastructure projects, like Leipzig Central Station, Europe's largest train station.

Another historicist gem he designed is the neo-renaissance Viktoriahaus Dresden (1892) next to (now modernist) Prager Strasse, which I definitely miss brutally:

The pleasant modernist view now.

In my opinion corner buildings should always be made in the original classic style here.

What's particularly sad, and actually upsetting. is how the city, after decades of awaiting its release from the chains of communism, rubble, and soviet domination, had the same opportunity as in the Neumarkt to reconstruct key architectural landmarks all along Prager Strasse; such as Viktoria Haus. But, they failed miserably to capture the moment. Now the entire space from the Alt Markt to the train station looks like Legoland...characterless, colorless, spiritless.

There's only slight visible progress around Neumarkt currently. Though some of the roofs are almost finished, I'll see if I can posts some pics of that here.

The status of the roofs at Quartier VII/2 (Jüdenhof) can be seen here:

Quite possibly the best Quartier yet. It's good they haven't spoiled it too much with crappy modern buildings.
