Probably to commemorate the Siege of Vienna.

19th century pic of the Neumarkt:



Quartier I, Frauenkirche, Quartier II, III, IV, Hotel Stadt Rom, Quartier V (Heinrich-Schütz-Residenz) & VI (left to right)

In a perfect world, Quartier VI would look like this:





Who knows how much of that will actually come to fruition though.

One thing that disturbs me about the reconstructions is the absence of "beyond the facade" reconstructions. For example, if I were to compare the pics of the rooftops taken today versus the pics taken before the war, there is clearly less "randomness" of the roof structures. If you know what I mean.

Whats so difficult about building it exaclty like its shown in the rendering?

I mean---everybody who has a little bit of understanding for aesthetics confirms that this would be a nice, and also historic correct solution.
Just look at all these modern buildings, that are filled between the reconstructions-99% look like sh**

It's interesting to see how the Neumarkt is coming back to its former glory, from relatively the same angle:

1870:

70:

I hope that is built. It is beautiful and would add so much to Dresden. I hope to see the entire historic part of Dresden rebuilt.
Why wouldn't they be built? :/

I don't know why they couldn't have just kept on with the 'beautiful' look instead of putting modern here or there. Its an insult to the reconstructions and history of Dresden. They are total eyesores. Is it to be hip or something? This buildings will be refaced later probably and people will think "What the hell were they thinking?!".

Modernists. Sadly not everyone shares our enthusiasm for old architecture.

The bad news is that the building on the left probably won't be built (called "Au Petit Bazar"). The good news is that there probably won't be any modern buildings facing the Neumarkt either. So it'll most likely look like this:





Before the war:

Uhm...I dont get it.

Reconstructing "Au-petit-bazar" would mean rebuilding the situation just like it was before the war, right?
So why dont they just make it like that?---it even looks better...

Yes it would. But then again many Quartier II buildings don't look the way they looked in 1945 either. The situation of Quartier VI would then reflect the way it looked between 1803 and 1851 (when Au Petit Bazar was built). In a sense we're going back even further in time.

Quartier II

Well the modernist can get over their pitty 'architecture' and let real architecture be built. Honestly they are like social conservatives always putting their damn nose in places it doesn't belong. This is a reconstruction not a 'I hate anything human' convention.

If anybody's further interested in those shown renderings and further ones - Visit arte4d.de (by Mr. Hummel) (just go to the 'Gallerie' for some examples).

"An Gottes Segen ist alles gelegen"...rough translation would probably be "Everything depends on God's blessing"



Wer Gott vertraut hat wohl gebaut...who trusts in God has built well





Modern building next door:

Thanks for the update, Rapmaster K! We'll be staying two nights in Dresden on our trip to Germany next week in no small part because of your outstanding images of a mercifully now-being-rebuilt city. Wish we had time to stay longer - oh well.

Once again I have to give credit to the great photographers who are updating us. Good to hear though that the Neumarkt has convinced you to visit Dresden. 5 years from now it'll be even better.

If one can be really proudly on it what is rebuilt in the new market for a few years everything. I find it brilliantly and to so completely against modern new buildings at this lucrative place of Dresden. One has in Dresden only this unique possibility to bring a small piece of old Dresden again to the life. So thank you to the people from "GHND e.V"

@ Kampflamm: Sorry wegen der Aktionen von vor paar Tagen!
