I didn't thanks a lot.

There are some really cool things going on in Germany. I love the boom in Frankfurt and Hafencity in Hamburg is also cool but then there is Dresden. Dresden is just awesome. There are so many cityplanners that should pay Dresden a visit.

The Johanneum actually was one of the earlier attempts to reconstruct during the 1950s. Today it is undergoing a full refurbishing to eliminate the wear and tear of the past 60 years.

Any hope of the Kaiserpalast getting a rebuild? (Ripped from other thread)

It would be incredible if the Kaiserpalast would be rebuilt. It stood on Pirnaische Platz facing south toward the Neues Town Hall. On its right side was the police headquarters in what is now adjacent to Quartier III and IV of the reconstruction area. The street between the two buildings was a grand boulevard that went north from the Parnaische Platz a block to the Kurlander Palais and the Rampishe Strasse.

In front of the Kaiserpalast was a beautiful open area of street car, auto, and pedestrian traffic hub, including a landmark clock tower. Pirnaischer Platz was essentially the eastern gateway from/to the Alt Stadt and the Grossergarten area and housing neighborhoods east of the downtown area and on the south bank of the Elbe called Johannstadt. This area was the hardest hit in Feb 1945.

at the moment, the space on which the Kaiserpalast was located is being used as a parking lot. The roadway is busy and the area is essentially characterless. But the good news is that there are no buildings to tear down which is the issue with Wilsmersdorf and Prager Strasse. So hopefully, a recreated Pirnaischer Platz will be realized soon.

You can clearly see the bombed out ruins of the Kaiserpalast here:



And before the war:

There are no plans for its reconstruction.

The contrast between the British Hotel and the rear facades of the buildings along Wilsdrufer is a stark reminder of how different and less apealling the earlier buildings and rennovations were.

Talking of 'less appealing':

A superb row of historical reconstructions, and that 'thing' sits in the middle of it. I still don't know how they were allowed to get away with it IMO it almost completely ruins the effect as the eye is instantly drawn to it.

Fortunately it does not look so ugly at street level but yes, it was absolutely criminal to have built it there!

What does the front look like? I imagine at some stage that side wall will be covered when new buildings go up on the vacant lot. It's the front that is important.

edit. opps. Sorry, my bad. I was thinking it was the building on the far left under discussion, not the middle one on the street. I must learn to read properly... ;O)

We can be glad, that, seen from Neumarkt, the green house's roof covers the horrible roof of that hotel!

Yes, disgusting! especially as Rampische Strae is one of most successful parts of the reconstruction, IMO.

The architects of the Innside hotel were Woerner and Partner, and you can see them gloating about their 'achievement' on their website:

Clearly, the Woener architects are modernists and feel the disruption of design themes for neighborhoods somehow works. In my architecture studies years ago, a prime goal for design was to properly integrate new construction with its surroundings. Maybe that goal is no longer part of the consideration; or maybe Woener thinks his design does work in the row of baroque structures. There is no accounting for taste.
