Fantastic job, so many German cities should follow the examples of Frankfurt and especially Leipzig!

I wish mexican cities followed this examples. We've lost so much historical/architectural heritage through the years, and nobody has ever considered rebuilding or even repairing it.

Bourtange - The Netherlands
Quote:
Originally Posted by wikipedia
Bourtange is a star fort and village in the Westerwolde region of the Dutch province of Groningen. It is a part of the municipality of Vlagtwedde, and lies about 32 km northeast of Emmen.

The fortifications were initially built during the Eighty Years' War (c. 1568–1648) when William I of Orange wanted to control the only road between Germany and the city of Groningen which was controlled by the Spaniards. This road followed a sandy ridge (tange) through the marshes (the Bourtange Swamp). Later, around 1594, Bourtange became part of the fortifications on the border between the northern provinces (Groningen, Friesland, Drenthe) and Germany.

In 1851 the star fort was given up and Bourtange became a normal village.

Around 1960 living conditions in the village deteriorated and it was decided that Bourtange would be rebuilt to its state of 1740-1750. Today it is an open air museum. In 2001, the town of Bourtange had 267 inhabitants. The built-up area of the town was 0.21 km², and contained 133 residences. The statistical area "Bourtange", which also can include the surrounding countryside, has a population of around 530.
In the 1960 it was similar to the nearby village Oudeschans


The reconstructed star fort of Bourtange


Eventualy it should be something like this (in the direction of Germany)


View on the ground


The buildings of the town are not very spectacular. It was never meant to build something monumental, it was just a fortress for protection.

I'm afraid that's true of Latin/South America in general. In the 60's and 70's they could'nt wait to tear down everyting old and replace with the shiny new which of course is now the crappy depressing old from two of the worst decades in the whole history of architectue. Only Buenos Aires kept a lot of its great buildings and is now considered the finest city by far in South America - hmmm, tells you a lot about modern architects.

Couldn't agree more. Sad but true.
