Important buildings like this Townhall were studied or repaired during the XIXth or early XXth century ; architectural drawings (elevations, plans...) were made on that occasion. I don't know if they were preserved in that particular case.

Photos are fine for context and such but they cant provide measurements, so I always wondered what they use in these sort of jobs.

You can estimate the measures from the photos if they are detailed enough.

They have a computer programm for that. Even if the photo is taken from a weird angle, it is able to dewarp everything perfectly and give you the exact proportions of everything.

Nice, but as I see it's not reconstruction, just renovation.

Palais Thurn and Taxis Frankfurt/Germany:

The Palais Thurn und Taxis in Frankfurt was built from 1731 to 1739 by Robert de Cotte commissioned by the Prince Reichserbgeneralpostmeisters Anselm Franz von Thurn und Taxis. The palace has a very checkered history: 1748 was the seat of the Imperial Headquarters of Thurn and Taxis post, from 1805 to 1813 the residence of the Primate and the Grand Duke of Frankfurt, Karl Theodor von Dalberg. After the restoration of the Free City of Frankfurt was held here from 1816 to 1866 the Bundestag, the German Confederation.

In 1895 Prince Albert I von Thurn und Taxis Palais sold to the imperial post, after he had the interior in his Emmeram Castle in Regensburg to spend, where she is today. In 1905 the city of Frankfurt took over the palace and sent to one in 1908 the Museum of Ethnology for the collections of the Africa explorer Leo Frobenius.

During 1943 and 1944 the palace was badly damaged in several bomb attacks and a good part of the substance, however, was preserved, for example, Remains of ceiling paintings and stucco. Although a reconstruction would have been possible, the building was demolished in 1951:






After WWII:

Reconstruction between 2004-2009:

^They should have combined the palace with the towers and the shoppingmall in a physical way. The main entrance of the palace could have been the entrance of the shopping mall behind the palace. Now the entrance of the shoppingmall is somewhere hidden, shoppers have to walk around the palace for the entrance.

Last year i visited Frankfurt. I didn't really get the purpose of the palace since it had no function other than 'being pretty'. Just as an excuse for some towers in the citycenter. I hope they found a way to use it properly after all.

the entrance of the shopping center is NOT hidden, it is in the main pedestrian area called "ZEIL", maybe you used the side entrance



btw: the palace houses a conference center, office space and a restaurant.

^The picture you show is on the other side of the complex. That entrance makes sense. The second entrance behind the palace doesn't. Imo that one should have been combined with the palace.

Some of the interiors of the Palais Thurn and Taxis were supposed to be rebuilt. Does anyone know what's the current status on that?

Well, there are at least two reconstructed interiors. Especially the one with the dome is very beautiful. I saw pictures of it...but don't know where, sorry.

If it were any other german city I would find the close proximity of a painstaking 18th century reconstruction to 21st century skyscrapers unthinkable, but somehow in Frankfurt it works. Personally, I'm glad the Thurn and Taxis Palais was not connected to the rest of the complex but allowed to stand alone. It respects the integrity of the resurrected historic landmark, and allows both front and back to be appreciated.
