Collegiate church in Tum is considered as one of best preserved romanesque churches in Poland(construction started in 1140-1161), before WWII church was mix of romanesque, gothic, rennessaince and baroque architecture. Church was heavy damaged in 1939 by Luftwaffe, after war was rebuilded, most baroque elements were removed and romanesque and gothic parts were exposed. Couple of pics:

Before WWII:


After war, during 'romanization' process:

St. Vaclav church in Radom(around XIII century)
After 1802 church was desacralized and lost it's architectural value after it served functions such as warehouse, prison, hospital, museum... In 1980-1986 building was under reconstruction and regained gothic shape

Pics before:

Fasade:


and after(cannot find good pic of fasade :/):

Nothing can compare with the reconstruction of the castle or fortress

This are croatian candidates for big reconstructions:
Cetingrad (place of first croatian parliament)
Before (in 19th century)

These reconstructions will look much better in 10 years when they have a bit more wear and dirt on them, because right now they look too cartoonish.

Just when I got overwhelmed by the incredible amount of attention in the reconstruction of post war Warsaw, done by average citizens who went through hell, you too give me these concrete movie sets?


Is not the beauty of a historic building it's ability to age? Unlike the 1950< structures that need a makeover every 5 years, just like our perverted culture? So how can it than be right to build structures we expect to act as historical in a way that disables them of aging gracefully?


This building is an Art Pavilion in my town and although this picture doesn't show it very well, it's facade used to be a whole texture filled with dark shades on the reliefs and a washed out dark yet transparent roof:



And one summer, I come back to the city and this is what I find (take a good look at the "china silver" roof):

That is how I see these concrete reconstructions. Only the Pavilion might recover in a few decades, but those will just ask for a new layer of paint.
