Fantastic project, I totally missed out on that one


I remember floating by, when this structure was in disrepair. You'll see the Elbe Manors close to it, all the lovely mansions, and I wondered why nothing happened to those lovely waterworks right at the riverfront. Maybe flooding used to be a problem, but well.

The Elbe Manors, Schloss Albrechtsberg, Lingnerschloss (Villa Stockhausen) and Schloss Eckberg, just a bit down the Elbe river:

World-class place. Magnificent.

These buildings look so fake and cheap with their sturdy sandstone cladding, the traditionally timbered and clad roofs and the close attention to detail and historical accurateness. So fake! D:

Well we can't see these yet, but those that I pointed out earlier in this thread looked very artificial to me and far from accurate, or genuine like some people tend to think in this thread. Oh well I guess we all have different preferences for how an exact reconstruction should look like, after all. #cheap

Destroyed 45. Mr Thorsten Radig (Real estate) like to give something "special" back to Dresden and likes to spend 1 Million to rebuild the tower. The tower would be free to enter when finished. The foundation can be recycled.

There have been more articles, but they seem to be dead links now.

just be happy for the reconstruction. Would a nasty modern building be better? no!
These buildings are far more better than the original buildings. Are they as nice? We just have to wait 200 years.

It's funny, the ones you say aren't accurate reconstructions are exact replicas of the old building. But I guess post modern architecture was really popular 200 years ago, right?

Some pictures from last weekend. I like the different roof colors



They took some of the curtain down.




The "Ziegel" roofing singles sitting up front.


Sandstone works


last stone to top the portal


Sandstone use on ground level was uncommon back in the day

Thank you, bilderbuch!

And now an update of the "Frieseneck" by the Friesen Strasse

Until a couple a days ago it looked like this


And now it`s moving fast








The base is still being worked on


The building in the middle


Building on the right hand side. The only re-construction


The Portal. The Headlight`s ironwork is handmade




The gutter is kind of hidden


One reconstruction, four new houses


The reconstruction had its ornaments mostly painted on, because the city was recovering from the seven year war back then and had not much money.


The middle building is stone clad.

Nice picks, Millennio Secondo

More details

From the wilsdruffer


The police HQ on the right, History of Dresden on the left


I am glad, it is not painted gray or white!






Looking from the British Hotel with a Swiss Flag. Owned by a Italian Cottage association the British Hotel is. Its members pay a monthly fee and can book condos on a weekly base worldwide for free in all properties of that association. The British Hotel is booked solid for three years. Dresden has a strong Italy connection.

Beautiful pictures from bilderbuch

I've always wondered why the ornaments on some renovated buildings in Neustadt were painted, it looked like something almost unique for Dresden, especially since there are so many buildings in the city that use that technique (although I've seen it in other places, as well). Knowing the cause of it, it makes you think whether it would be interesting to add real, stone ornaments now, during renovation or reconstruction, but I guess it would rather be a controversial move.

These plain and just painted facades looked like this also in the late baroque era. It's called "Hungerbarock" (hunger baroque) and is typical for Dresden and Saxony after Prussian forces bombed and occupied Dresden in the Seven Years War (1756–1763). When they rebuild the city back then they were just being "economic". So it's a good example for historical accuracy again.

Your definition for exact replicas is adorable.

I don't understand the Disneyland comments and how everything is soooo fake!!! Disneyland is a land of plastic, fiberglass, cheap wood construction, and is "make believe". Don't forget the wonderful array of concession stands selling high fat burgers, fries, and ice cream. Not to mention those crazy cartoon characters all over the place!?!?! Yes for sure guys......Dresden is just like that!!

The occupied Saxony pretty much financed Prussias war against Austria, France and Russia. A metapher usually ascribed to Friedrich II was that Saxony is like sack of flour: You can hit it again and again, something is always coming out.
Although the Seven Years War was desastrous for Saxony and Dresden in particular, the recovery of the country, known as the Saxon Rétablissement, was widely acknowledged in Germany and Europe. Making Saxony one of the richest regions in the Empire again and providing a good starting position for the early industrialisation afterwards.

Here is a map showing the devastation of the Prussian bombardement in 1760.




As one can see, large parts of the eastern old town were destroyed, including the Kreuzkirche. The Frauenkirche was also hit but resisted the cannon balls. (Reportedly Friedrich II. called the church a "Trutzkopf" afterwards, lit. sth. like "defying head" in English).
I marked the position of the project Friesengasse/Landhausstraße.
