Beautiful pics
City was almost 100% destroyed in 45' so it's amazing how you managed to rebuild it. I wish Warsaw was rebulit like that

Although houses look bit artifficial, the amount of work you've put in them deserves the highest respect

The new buildings look a bit plasticky I have to say, but hopefully and supposedly the effect of this will recede with time. Its just brick and plasterwork right?, so I guess all buildings of this kind look this when they are brand new.
I really think efforts of reconstruction like this is worthy applauding though, as I hope it might tear down the dogma, current among modern architects, that lost architecture cannot and should not be reconstructed.

I think its funny. People as it seems don't know how the old buildings of today look like when newly built. Maybe Las Vegas style projects have blurred the view on this, where buildings are fake, but look already from the 1st day on like standing around already for a long time. A real building I think does not have to fake age. Age will come all by itself.

Let's take a closer look at the recently finished Neumarkt buildings


Heinrich-Schütz-Residenz - Colored oriel with original pre-war fragments



Köhlersches Haus - Rococo-style emblem ornaments above the portal (also original fragments, not finished on this picture)


Source: German APH-Forum



For more photos, news (in German) and other stuff regarding reconstruction projects like this - take a look at
the historic architecture-related APH-Forum (Architectura Pro Homine).

That's the page Kampfy and me take all the marvellous photos from.
Just wanted to point that out again, to give no one the idea those would be taken by us

IMO this new building looks decent. I only hate the boring grey color that they chose.

There has been a nice report about dredens neumarkt 2 days ago on zdf. Also included other projects in Germany, such as the castle of the Prussian King in Berlins Central.

The Neumarkt needs to get a bit dirty and then noone will realize that its completely new.

Hope to visits Dresden this winter. Last time was 8 years ago. Should have changed substantially since then. The Neumarkt looks so nice.

I like it though. I wish such architecture apeared in my town. Anyway it doesn't look THAT bad around the Neu Markt - it's rather in the back corner than in the center. There was another contemporary style building that I really enjoyed. It was greish-red and curved.
Anyway, I want to say Congratulations for realising the project and making it alive.

British Hotel at Quartier IV

Judging by the buildings in the background, ja - that's the basement of the former and future British Hotel.


I'm pretty excited about that project.

This guy also had a great website, but I can't find it anymore. Do you know what I'm talking about?

The good news is the magnificent Facade will be rebuilt, again using what bits they can find left over.

Quote:
aar, 29 June 2007 – By the end of 2008, a new Hapimag resort will arise in the vicinity of the world-famous Church of Our Lady in Dresden. The building is an ambitious project since the facade will faithfully reproduce the original British Hotel that was destroyed in 1945.
At the end of 2008, Hapimag will open another resort in Dresden containing 34 apartments. It will be the 11th Hapimag city resort.
Site purchased
On 2 April, the finance committee of the City of Dresden gave the go-ahead for the purchase of the site at Landhausstrasse 6. The property will be transferred to the ownership of Hapimag once building permission is granted for the new resort. Hapimag will submit its building application before the summer holidays and hopes to start building work in the autumn.
Historical facade – historical vaulted cellars
The site where the new Hapimag resort will stand by the end of 2008 is the former location of the British Hotel. The building had an unusually monumental facade for its time. It was totally destroyed during a bombing raid on 13 February 1945. It is known that parts of the historical vaulted cellars are located on the present site. The extent of the vaults is larger than expected. Hapimag has undertaken to reconstruct the facade in every detail on the new building and to restore the vaulted cellars. This work will be performed in close cooperation with the Regional Office for the Preservation of Historic Monuments and the City Planning Office.

At present it is unclear what function the renovated vaulted cellars could assume. One possibility would be to use it as a place for storing, tasting and perhaps selling wine. Hapimag will join forces with architects from IPRO Dresden to develop draft plans for a utilisation concept for the historic cellar walls.

Nobody knows yet. There's still alot to do/restore. Might take another decade or even longer to finish rebuilding just the Neumarkt area...

No doesn't seem so.
Maybe the old Belvedere on Brühlsche Terasse.

But only proposed so far.

You have to know, that it's a little wonder, that so much of the Neumarkt was finally reconstructed. The City of Dresden (not the inhabitants of Dresden but politicians) are not in favor of reconstructions.

Here the up do date Map of Neumarkt (edited by me):

green: planned
dark orange: already completed
light orange: under construction right now
light orange framed: construction starts soon
red framed: should really be demolished!!! But not in the near future...
