Not really at this point. Maybe if they'll tear down some of the post-WW2 architecture.

Update:

Heinrich-SchŘtz-Residenz

Entrance:






Not really sure whether or not I like the color. I usually prefer a more "protestant" and colorless look.

Today:



Pre-1945:



K÷hlersches Haus:

That's a marvelous job being done there in Dresden. Great to see that baroque pearl being risen from the ashes.

Decent? c'mon Kampflamm, is a shitty building.

BTW, I really like the improvements of the Neumarkt.

Waiting to see Dresden...

I like the sinuousness of this new building, but i don't like its materials.
It is a little banal, could dare more in my opinion.

Are the interiors of these buildings at all similar in terms of layout to how they were originally ? Or are the layouts completeley different to meet the needs of today's renters ? Any historic looking interiors ?

I was wondering the same. I went to the "Dresden 1900", the restaurant in front of Frauenkirche, whih is a melting pot of style, even a train vagon inside, a bit kitsch. So i wondered wheather all the buildings inside looked new or some have a reconstructed part?

The modern building is ok IMO. 7.5/10
Especially the roundish shape makes it special and less boring. The windows are nice too.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the new building either. I like the curve, but I feel the facade is far too flat and I don't like the windows-they look like doors without balconies. While I understand that they are trying to do something modern, couldn't it have a little bit more detail? I'm not looking for statues and rocailles, but something to give it distinction would be nice. We are building for the future, and the future will judge us on what we do-let's try and do it well.

IMO the new buildings in Quartier III are definitely my favourite, expecially the one in front of Frauenkirche

Anybody knows the time for the reconstruction of Quartier VI-VII-VIII? And which building will be reconstucted and which building will be new?

Once it's finished, the Johanneum will look like just an other recently reconstructed building at Neumarkt.
I liked the old and authentic look it had.

I think thats some weird romanticism to think the old buildings only look truly good when they look old. After all those buildings that look old today had been new as well once. Of course does a patina even improve the ambiance, but that does not mean without it that its not beautiful as well.

Btw its a compliment to the new buildings if its just the lack of patina that makes up the difference for you between the reconstructions and the originals.
