This art nouveau house was reconstructed in Brussels two years ago.

A pretty shameful situation because the house had been declared a monument in the early nineties and right after that was torn down under false pretenses.


There is also a very good chance they will rebuild the Aubecq house by Victor Horta in the near future. It got demolished in the 1950's but the stones and metalwork have been preserved all this time.

Interesting photos of Istanbul. But we're rather looking for rebuilt/reconstructed, not renovated structures here.


But people, beware: Reduce the images per post! 5 to 10 are enough. You can show more in your next post. And credit your SOURCES! Give a link, name the author or if you don't have any idea mark it as "unknown".

Cordial thanks for the attention.

Nauvoo Illisnois Mormon Temple

This was originally completed and dedicated on May 1 1846. It was destroyed almost completely by a fire lit by arsons on the 9th of October 1848. A tornado destroyed remaining partially standing walls on the 27th of May 1850.









On April 4th 1999 Mormon world President announced plans to reconstruct the Nauvoo Temple. The exterior would be a faithful reproduction of the original exterior including a full battery of symbols unique to the Nauvoo temple. The one exception being the statue of the angel Moroni that would grace the steeple. The Nauvoo temple would utilise the standard upstanding full figured gold statue as common on most Mormon temples rather than the horizontal weather vane used in the original building.

The temple was dedicated on the 27th of June 2002 with a global satellite audience participating in the historical event. Original estimates have the build at around $30 million. However it maybe significantly over this as a small army of craftsman were required to execute the intricate details inside out and out.







Although the exterior is an exact replica of the original, the interior does not follow suit. Modern Mormon temple liturgical requirements required a different layout to the original. Elements have been included from the original, but largely the interior is completely modern albeit in a mid 1800's styling.

^ That's one of the most interesting examples I didn't know about so far. Any interior views you could offer?



Btw, I decided to move the Istanbul photos here: Revitalization in Your Cities

NICE building! Although I think the above building would fall under restoration, and not a reconstruction.

Awesome thread!

It is a shame that the beautiful fašade of Pellerhaus won't be reconstructed! But I think it would be very very expense to do it, regarding how much money is needed solely for the reconstruction of the courtyard. And even for that, the necessary funds are not coming easily...

Well, my first contribution to this thread:

Cathedral of Christ the Savier in Moscow

Construction
The history of the Cathedral begins on December 25, 1812. This was the day that the last soldiers of Napoleons' 600,000 man army were driven out of Russia. Emperor Alexander I signed a Manifesto ordering the construction of a magnificent Cathedral in honor of Christ the Savior in Moscow as a thanksgiving to God and to honor the victorious Russian army.


Original project




Exterior in 1905

Interior in 1883

Destruction (1931)
The site of the Cathedral is a very important one for urban developers. After the revolution this, along with ideological principles, became the reason for the decision to destroy the Cathedral. The plan entailed constructing a grandiose Palace of Soviets on the site of the Cathedral. This palace was meant to be the largest building in the world - a monument to victorious socialism and Lenin - the leader of the world proletariat. A new Moscow, with no vestiges of the "cursed past and its' monuments" was to arise around this Palace. A massive wave of propaganda preceded the actual destruction. The newspapers wrote, "the Cathedral is grotesque and totally inartistic", that "the Cathedral is a poisonous mushroom on Moscow's face" and that it was "a source of slothfulness" and so forth.



Source

Reconstruction
The main Cathedral of Russia - Christ the Savior Cathedral barbarously destroyed on December 5 1931 has been rebuilt in 1994-2000 through to the prayers and works by His Holiness Patriarch Alexey II, the Holy Synod, support form all Russian Orthodox Church, purpose and organizational talent of Moscow's mayor Yu.M. Luzhkov, works of Moscow Government members, joint work of architects, builders, as well as artists and sculptors, who reconstructed artistic beauty of the Cathedral.

Yes, one of the most large scale reconstructions in the world.
