Wunderbar. I'm glad we'll finally see this quarter rising. Dresden old town really starts to feel urban.

Hopefully not too much concrete, I prefer bricks.

Really? I find that awful grey thing is the first thing my eye is drawn to. A really bad mistake on the part of the planners.

Don't you think that is primarily down to two reasons:

1) You know it's a reconstruction and therefore you view it differently to other inner city areas that are 'authentic'.

2) You need to see it in 50 years time when time has softened some of the hardness of the edges?

I saw the center of Dresden two years ago, I must say that the effect is not like an amusement park, the only fact is that the buildings seemed too clean, but time will tell us. I like even the new addiction, that make it real and not only a "fake" reconstruction.

I know. I hope You're right.

However I have some doubts. It just looks TOO fake.

I suspect, like Wolfpaw, that time will bestow a patina of grime that'll tone down the shiny new Disney appearance. An obvious precedent would be the Warsaw Old Town: has it gotten more "authentic" looking in the past half century or so since it was built?
