Those turned black of course. It's that visible by purpose.

Besides, the Elbe sandstone has the character of turning black rather fast, without pollution in the air. That's something specific for the region. I like how they implemented it.

Wow, i didnt know that, interesting. Old Frauenkirche was very black in photos, now i know why!

This is an on-going reconstruction that's taking place in Dartmouth near Exeter after a serious fire in May 2010. Dartmouth has some of the finest 16th and 17th century timber-framed houses in Devon, despite being bombed in World War Two. No 5 Higher Street was particularly important as it was an exceptionally well-preserved merchant's house from c1635. It seems that the exteriors are being reconstructed using as much of the original material as possible. The interior had a fine plasterwork ceiling but I'm not sure what's happening with this. It was damaged but was still surviving. A falling chimney smashed it and left the plasterwork hanging down from the lathes. I think people are hoping to rescue it and retain it in the reconstruction.

This thread needs a refresh

Reconstruction of Przemysl castle in Poznan[Poland]

Another bit controversial castle reconstruction from Poland is Reconstruction of Poznań king's castle(called also Przemysl castle) in gothic-renessaince style over hill in Poznan old city. The problem is we didn't know for sure how it looked in past, we have only small view of Panorama from 1617, here it is:


Unfortunetly castle was devasteted and change it's form many times(survivied building from 1783 founded on castle fundaments)
There were several project for castle reconstruction, mostly modern-glass-modern rubbish, but historic-like project won. Project is based on historic research, but there is also some fantasia like tower.
Here is how it will look like(building on right is that survived building mentioned above):



Reconstruction began, and here is some actual photos:


There will be nice view of old town from castle tower:


I'm waiting with opinion until they finish it, but I think it's not okey, if there are many ruined castles with good documentation and litography, where reconstruction could be less controversial, but since any reconstructions are quite forbidden in Poland, this one is better than nothing...

Reconstruction&Revitalization Poznan remains of defensive walls[Poland]


Is another reconstrucion from last years in Poznan, only little fragments of Poznan defensive walls survived, almostly forgotten. One tower survived somehow, second one was torn down by nazis in WWII and was reconstructed lately, and some walls between towers were also partly reconstructed.

Fragment around 2003:


Visualization:


and now:



Well, I'm kinda dissapointed with reconstructed walls, shame that they didn't realize it like in Visualization above, it just looks too shiny and eee.. new? Especially that super-sharp bricks, but hope that time will help here

That's all for now
Cheers

Yes.It was difficult to reconstruct the building since everything in the castle was stolen during occupation of Vukovar including all the plans and old photos of the castle.

Few more pics how castle Eltz looked like:

The Potsdamer Stadtschloss (en: Potsdam City Palace) was constructed on the site of an earlier fortification from 1662 to 1669 under Kurfürst Friedrich Wilhelm, and was rebuilt by Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff under Friedrich II from 1744 to 1752, who performed additional interior decoration.
During an allied bombing attack on 14 April 1945 the City Palace was bombed and burned out, some parts of the main walls remained. The East German Communist Party decided to remove the ruin in 1960.
The Landtag of Brandenburg decided to rebuild the Potsdam City Palace in its historical form and then occupy the inside as the new parliament of Brandenburg. The cost for the project was put at 120 million euros.

The Castle Eltz reconstruction (in Serbia?) is very interesting to me, because not very far from my city here in Germany is the 800+ years old ancestral seat of the noble Eltz-family.
I checked the coat of arms on the pics of the reconstructed baroque castle and it's indeed the same!

The familiy still lives in there!!

Is that castle in Serbia still in their posession?

Quote:
In 1736 Archbishop Philipp Karl von Eltz had acquired the Lordship of Vukovar in eastern Slavonia (present-day Croatia) affiliated with the Hungarian nobility. From 1749 onwards his heirs had Eltz Manor erected, the main residence of the Grafen von und zu Eltz until the family was expelled by the Yugoslav communist regime in 1945. After Croatia declared independence from Yugoslavia, Jakob Eltz returned to Croatia and as a naturalized citizen became a member of the new Sabor parliament, where he represented Vukovar. During the Battle of Vukovar, the Eltz Manor in Vukovar was destroyed by intense shelling and the bodies in the Eltz tomb desecrated by Serbian forces. Jakob Eltz, then in his 70s, personally took part in the defence of the city.
