Above: The building in 2000 (had been in a similar state of disrepair for 15 years).

In 2010 the building was taken down brick-by-brick and relocated. The reconstruction was completed in 2011.

The building as it is today:


It's great to see the hall's been preserved, but what an ugly setting and wasteful use. Why bother moving the building if it's just going to be used as a fast-food outlet? .

still worth preserving, but those garish "Subway" banners do detract from this charming ancient building....guess they helped restore or move it, now this is their privilege.

You guys may be pleased to learn that Pescod Hall is no longer being used as a fast food restaurant. Subway ceased operating from the building less than one month ago (they plan to move to a more modern building less than 100 m away). At present the building is empty, although it is quite likely that it will soon become a glassware shop. No more garish banners!

What was the basis for reconstruction (?) of the side towers? On the Napoleons Orda's drawing there are none

According to archival data so Palace looked originally. In later reconstructions the towers had been lost.

Slightly different:

Høvdinghuset, a viking long house at Borg in Lofoten, Norway. Had been lost for around 1000- 1500 years when it was reconstructed in the late '80s.

Here's a wiki article about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mead_hall

Quote:
In ancient Scandinavia and Germanic Europe a mead hall or feasting hall was initially simply a large building with a single room. From the fifth century to early medieval times such a building was the residence of a lord and his retainers. The mead hall was generally the great hall of the king. As such, it was likely to be the safest place in the kingdom.

Another reconstruction:

Fantoft Stave church, Norway. Originally built around year 1150, but have since then been reconstructed twice. Firstly it was moved from it's original location at Fortun in Sogn in 19th century and reconstructed on its current location at Fana, right outside of Bergen. It was at the same time redesigned to resemble how they thought it looked like originally. It was later lost in a arson by the Norwegian black metal musician Varg Vikernes in 1992. The reconstruction was completed in 1997.

The church at Fortun, prior to the redesign.



How it appeared at Fana in the 19th century:

A picture of the burned church was used as the cover on Burzums (a one-man band by Varg Vikernes) 1993 EP. The first 1000 copies of the EP came with a free lighter bearing the same image .

I love all these projects in Europe, Its a shame we don't reconstruct lost buildings in the UK, we don't seem to 'do' reconstructions (generally)

[QUOTE=Mr Bricks;91750256]Agreed. Other candidates for reconstruction in London, all demolished after WWII:

Euston Arch. This might be reconstructed when Euston Station, also demolished in the 60s, is redeveloped.


I quite agree with your selection, restoration of more of the city churches I would also add. Although out of the selection the only building which realistically be reconstructed is the Euston Arch. There was a real possibility it could have been rebuilt a few years ago but its gone very quiet recently and it is probably getting more and more unlikely which is a real shame. I would have though Mr Cruikshank would have seen it resurrected but he seems too busy with other work.

Isle of Sviyazhsk (Russia)
Reconstruction and renovation of the churches and Monastery of the Dormition in Sviyajsk. During Soviet reign the monastery was abandoned, and the many icons and interior of the Trinity Church were painted white, leaving on the shell of the church. The Isle of Sviyazhsk is now renovating and reconstruction the buildings of the monastery and other (religious) buildings on the island. Also new roads were created, and lantarns were placed to give the Isle a better look and making it more attractive for tourists
(here a few pictures of the reconstructions and rebuildings)













Hope Sviyazhsk will get a lot more of her old historical churches and other buildings back
