Could someone tell me how they determine which buildings are reconstructed and which ones are in a modern style? Were the ones that are now modern not historically significant or very decorative before the war?

Thus it also goes for me and many other people. Experience once old and nice Dresden.

Unfortunately, the people who deal with Dresden not a lot decide this. They think because they are architects that they know what is good for Dresden. They are very often quite wrong.

As far as I know the city determines which plots are rebuilt in which way. Investors can of course argue their case...some want more modern architecture, others actually want more reconstruction. But the city has the last say.

I just think it is a shame that they aren't rebuilding the whole thing to look historic. Some of the new buildings aren't bad, but some are atrocious and will look very dated in only a few years. Maybe then someone with taste will change the facades? We can only hope.

I am not shocked. It really depends on the finished overall impression. Maybe it fits.

I think these red things may be plastic covers that protect the frames while work is still going on.

Of course they are.


I hope the actual facade turns out just as good as the rendering.

This building would still spoil one of the greatest baroque streetscapes of Europe (Rampische Straße) in its fragmentation and splendour.

But the Poles did an awesome job reconstructing the oldest part of the city. In Dresden they just rebulit the most famous landmarks. And the rest were ugly commiblocks...

Edit:
Funny, how there's always one Polish guy bringing up, how worse Warsaw was destroyed, when talking about destroyed German cities. And then there's always a German guy, who has to tell the Polish guy, how awesome Warsaw was reconstructed afterwards and how awful the German city was rebuilt.

Has the economic downturn impacted the reconstruction efforts at all? I heard Obama is planning a trip to Dresden this summer, very cool.

Its springtime - Mehr Photos Bitte!

But it's true. I mean Warsaw was probably the most destroyed city during II world war in Europe. Polish people are really sensitive about it

Well, what the Poles never say and the Germans never know is how Warsaw was rebuilt. They destroyed several former German towns to get the material (like Gothic bricks or roof tiles). The town centers of Jelenia Gora and Legnica were dismantled and the destructions in Wroclaw were as big as in the war. Maybe Dresden could look like Warsaw today, but Leipzig, Meissen and Görlitz would also look totally different.
