At the end of the day, the church bodies are to "blame" for the demolitions. Typically, they vote as a congregation to move and dispense of buildings.

Not true. No one got a "vote" in the communist areas and the state took control of the vast majority of such structures.

In the U.S. where congregations are independent entities, they do control their buildings' destinies, and there is much historical loss as a result.

The Berlin Palace is really taking shape now. Amazing I can see this in my lifetime!
This is the main construction thread for it:

Main parish in Újpest, Budapest. Historical reconstruction and extension.
Built: 1873
Rebuilt: 2015

Before the reconstruction:



The situation with the extension:


And after the reconstruction:

This is the most common type of the historical reconstrucion in the Hungarian cities. The reconstruction of the original architectural forms of a simplistic and damaged building with an extension or the remodeling of some space from the old building, because of a new function.

Bratislava Castle after finishing of the ongoing reconstruction in 2016 (includes new structures such as cultural venue and baroque garden). The castle burned down in 1811, the first reconstruction started in 1950s, last reconstruction, which started in 2008, is restoring the look of the castle from the time of reign of Maria-Theresa (1740-1780). Valuable Celtic-Roman findings were found during the recent excavations, some historians believe, that the site was the original location of Carnuntum in the first century BC. Carnuntum was then moved to the current location in Austria.

General view:



New cultural venue in the theresian Winter riding hall and entrance to the room with the findings:



Room with the presentation of the findings:



New baroque garden will look exactly as it looked like in 18th century (original plans were found in the archives):



Another room with the Roman findings will be located next to the garden:



Bratislava Castle now:

Can we please stick to actual reconstructions in this thread? Many of the recent examples were just renovations.

Tiaren is technically correct. These entries belong in the "revitalization in your cities and towns" thread. Having said that the submissions are beautiful and exciting!
