You guys took a simple, reasonable, and appropriate historic post and made it political. Very disappointing to witness such totalitarianism.

My only last question is who removed the photo SpamKing posted?

What do You think architecture is? An abstract, self-referring excercise, or something for humans made by humans?
Is the demolition of a building, made with precisely placed explosives in order to make it collapse, architecture? Well, in a certain way, this was the same thing, but with "some" collateral damage. And this shall not be obliviated, because architecture is work of mankind, not something abstract and inhuman.
And the period is precise: it's the anniversary of what had happend.

Can You deal with the truth? Are You able to show respect for those who have been sacrified, for what You're now are calling "architecture"?

I don't bother about, that in those cellars, buried for decades, and now restored, preserved and integrated in the new buildings, many people may have lot their lives, but I cannot ignore this fact: it is part of architecture, in my concern. And is right to remember, once a year.

Of course I'm able to memorize the fallen. I respect and mourn them. I myself have relatives from the vicinity of Dresden that escaped from the city just before the bombings. All the more I'm worried about posting victim's photos here, I find them to be disrespectful.

But we've observed what happened with such posts earlier within the realm of this thread. We don't need another six pages of seemingly endless discussion relating to it. That's what we have skybars and the Citytalk forum for.

Some people just seem unable to cope with the functionality of an internet forum. If you want to discuss a topic other than that of the thread, you go to another thread or open such. It's as easy as that. And yes, the history of WW2 bombings in Dresden clearly needs to be separated from this thread, we've made this observation multiple times. We're not here for flame wars or historical revision.

Off Topic Completely!!!! Wouldn't' it be nice if the city of Dresden was to follow it's old street patterns? Make it modern! Make it old looking! How about a mix of both! Can you imagine how wonderful and humanistic it would feel.

Well, that's pratically Neumarkt project. Streets follow old street patterns, but there are many modern building between reconstructed ones. IMO, doesn't look very promising, just imagine Prague's Old Town being disrupted by a sh*tload of semi-modern buildings.

I don't think so, probably it was reported, so a random mod took action.

I've always wondered: is the street grid exactly the same as before, or were streets slightly widened while rebuilding the Neumarkt?

Sure. It was me, I reported the picture even if I shared the general message, and I had it removed from some mod or admin.
Unfortunately, Google's AdSense policy means that you can't share graphic images, regardless of the reason why you do it.
SSC's policy doesn't allow such pictures either. As simple as that

I think we can mourn the dead and remember the devastation caused by WWII, even without sharing the picture of their dead body

Hi - on Arstempano are three Panoramas from the inner courtyard Palais Hoym online. We have also Infocards with some Informations inside of the Panos. Another Pano is from the Frauenkirche and you can see Hotel Stadt Rom, Jüdenhof, the "green gewandhaus" etc.

cozy warm colours = in german in the baroque time = "strohgelb" - maybe I have a little to much Yellow and red. I hope I find Time for a little corretion in the next month. Other Buildings in Dresden are the Hotel Bülow, Taschenberpalais, Landhaus, Coselpalais, Schloss Hubertusburg near Leipzig, Schloss Reinhardtsgrimma near Dresden

In the last days are finish: 6 Panos in the coming Frauenstraße with the house of Johann Melchior Dinglinger, the goldsmith.



and here the Chiapponische House

I have been obsessed with this city for years, but after fixating on it for so long, it is becoming boring and unimpressive.

Well, yeah, probably it's a bit like being married to the same lady for too long without any great variety... Just go for an exciting affair with another hot citytesse, and then come back, cry her a river, show some penitence, and re-discover your one and only true love!

What's boring and unimpressive about Dresden!? It is a city with such a rich history, variety of architectural masterpieces and home to a huge amount of precious works of art. Of course, there is always space for improvement (would love to see a museum dedicated to war and Dresden's destruction), but IMO Dresden is just fine as it is now.

Hello, everybody! The Castle in Dresden is working on the Weapon Collections' display!

The "long hallway" will be upgraded between spring 2016 and fall of 2018 into this:


http://www2.pic-upload.de/img/297163...anger_Gang.jpg

seen on this map on the right hand side called "langer Gang" long hallway.

picks free

Fun Fact: The Museum is 20 years older than the Museum in the Vatican City!
Many weaponry was purchased for display 400/500 Years ago. For example folding drinking cups from the Osman Empire made of leather! 350 years old. Only four of those still exist from the millions once in use by the Osman's. All four known are now in Dresden on display
