The Schloss is coming along. The media reviled the plans to have the Residenz Schloss of Dresden finished by 2021! We will drink to that. Only the chapel will take longer!
And now, Ladies and Gentleman, here some construction pictures from inside the Schloss. The room is called "Kleiner Ballsaal" To hold a formal Ball in it.








pictures from BautzenFan, APH Forum, thanks!

that entire floor in the pics is the scaffold for the work on the ceiling, if i am not mistaken. the finished room will be about 25 feet high.

Good news!

The final designs for Quarter VII-1 are not bad...not bad at all:

Every reconstruction that was proposed is coming, we have a very traditional new Building facing Schlossstraße and the rest of the modern designs are decent looking and fit well in.

Excellent. A huge win.

Remember the time, not so long ago, when the view from the TaschebergPalais provided a clear image of the Frauenkirche?

I think this is the point. With the corners being historic, all non conforming become encased in a row anchored by appropriate design. The corners define the block in many ways, particularly due to the double exposure. If not correct, failure times 2 is known as disaster.

Why cant all the contemporary additions be more like the above? These buildings are perfect examples of contextual well designed buildings, they don't look anything close to pastiche but fit perfectly with the surrounding historic landscape because of their form,massing and window placement. Its just so easy to make buildings that are not offensive to the eye yet so many architects fail at this simple task

Also ,dresden is beginning to resemble a very beautiful former self. Especially with the addition of the quarter above, I think it has certainly regained its title as a beautiful city

I think the building is very good. Looks like they even will use red roof tiles. Amazing!

I would not have included the formation of flying somethings at 10 o'clock coming in. Too close an image to enemy aircraft.

Seems timely to give another salute to the focal point of the Neumarkt reconstructions. A standing ovation to Die Frauenkirche.

Beautiful picture! A wonder born into the world again.

While Dresden is known for its baroque masterpieces, it truly was a city of diversity.

Lovely. The Frauenkirche is a masterpiece of its own class. There's none like this.

How did you like your Dresden trip, did it live up to your expectations?

I got hooked on Dresden on my first trip in 1987. The ruins. A professor at Berkeley called Dresden a "black hole of American history", so that motivated a type of pilgrimage. I spoke to many people asking essentially two questions: 1) will Germany ever unite? and 2) will Dresden ever get rebuilt? 100% of those interviewed responded with a strong NO to both questions.

This photo of the Frauenkirche was taken during the occasion of its re-dedication in 2005. Yesterday, I happened to look at the image, a huge reproduction of which I have on display, and noticed the clock is at 5:17...and yesterday was 5-17. Weird, right? So I thought it best to post the shot.
