House of the Butchers' Guild, City of Hildesheim, northern Germany
Built: 1529 in late gothic style
Destroyed: 1945
Reconstructed: 1986-89.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butche...ll,_Hildesheim

1900



ca. 1965
In this image the Guildhouse has been replaced by the "Hotel Rose" (built in 1962 in the typical style of the 60's).
The church in the background would normally have been partially occluded by the Guildhouse and other large destroyed houses.


http://1200.hildesheimer-allgemeine....vergangenheit/

Rough superposition of the Guildhouse (my estimate)



1987/88
Reconstruction work on two separate houses with the Guild Hall on the right about halfway topped out

It's true, but Pieskowa Skala is really more of a renovation rather than a reconstruction.

Resculpted allegorical statues (symbolising the first four faculties) at the entrance to the main building of the University of Technology and Economics in Budapest.

The original statues came under direct soviet artillery fire during the Siege of Budapest and were totally destroyed.

Is getting its first floor reconstructed in the style it was built (although there are some differences):



(Own pictures.)

The cone spires it had initally will sadly not be rebuilt.

On that Oslo project, a lot of undoing later additions goes on in the U.S.--especially in cities that have historical significance. Great ain't it?

THE HUNGARIAN MUSEUM OF SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND TRANSPORT! HAS STARTED!








"The renovation of the Museum of Science, Technology and Transport will commence this year, and, to facilitate this, the building closed on 15 April 2015. As a result of the renovation, not only will the institution be restored to its original splendour but the museum functions, exhibition and visitor service areas will also be renewed; moreover, the building will be enlarged by adding new exhibition spaces below the ground level. Thus, by the end of the decade a museum fully reconstructed on the outside and housing a modern, 21st-century museum on the inside will open its gates in the renewed City Park.

During the period of the reconstruction works visitors will be able to view the artefacts of the museum’s collection at several different locations.

This church-like building designed by Ferenc Pfaff in the Romantic-Eclectic style originally consisted of two parts: the vehicles running in parallel with Hermina Road, and the dome hall. The dome’s diameter was 25 metres, its exterior height 67 metres and its interior height 34 metres, while the vehicles hall with its interior dimensions, which had a length of 90 metres and a span of 20 metres, was partially covered by a glass roof. The museum’s decorative, patterned stained glass panes were made by Miksa Róth. The Hungarian Royal Transport Museum opened its gates in 1899 in the building of the Transport Hall, the latter being constructed for the National Millennium Exhibition of 1896, as one of the first museums of technology and transport on the European continent.

The bombing of the City Park in July and September 1944 caused significant destruction to the building, and close to 35 percent of the roof collapsed. The museum was given its present, ‘final’ condition after the rebuilding that took place from 1964 to 1965, resulting in a considerably maimed form. In accordance with the tastes of the time, the whole first floor, including the dome, was demolished during the rebuilding. In addition, the corner towers surrounding the dome hall and the ground floor areas were also condemned to demolition, and at the same time Hermina Road was broadened to the width recognised today. On 2 April 1966 the new Transport Museum opened its gates on the area that remained; however, the building proved to be too small and was, therefore, enlarged between 1979 and 1985. Since building an extension was only possible on the narrow plot shaped in an acute angle, the enlargement ended up being of a rather modest scale.

During the restoration of the building according to its original, historic design the planning work is being carried out with consideration to the attributes of the site, creating harmony between the desired functions and the development opportunities"...

The proposed design at the render is rather modest in comparison with the original one. No statues, no reliefs, less decor, even dormer windows are missing. Are all these elements supposed to be added at some later stage of reconstruction? If they aren't the whole project doesn't make much sense. For such an eclectic, (sort of) neo-baroque building this excessive decoration is an integral, inseparable part of the whole. If one wants more sober design it's more logical to develop some other project than stripped-off beaux-arts.
