absolutely amazing.

How stark the differance between destructive communism and wealth-creating capitalism is.

It's too bad I chose Dresden over Leipzig as a day trip from Berlin. Leipzig is infinitely more interesting!

I don't think so. These Gründerzeit quarters are mostly residential districts without major sights, and most of them are quite a few metres away from the city centre. If you don't know where to look you probably end up in a quarter which was leveled in WW2 or isn't restored yet. And Dresden has such quarters too, in Neustadt and around the Blaues Wunder (blue wonder) bridge.

I'm more pleased with any similiar reconstruction than with new realizations in Leipzig or anywhere else.

Hm, I don't get the message...

Anyway thanks Karasek for posting these interesting images and yes I do think that Leipzig is more interesting than Dresden. But both cities are certainly worth a visit!

Leipzig really impresses me
To bad I weren't there last week when I was in Erfurt, Weimar, Naumburg and Quedlinburg.

And now something compeletely different. The corner building on the right side was destroyed in WW2 (the house on the left too):






This house doesn't get reconstructed, since it was mediocre anyway. Instead they will build something which looks almost like a copy of designs from the 20s and early 30s:





Very unusual, but good.

I am generally in favour of historical reconstructions (if done faithfully), but this building is great! I could imagine that, after a few years, it will look like it has always been there.

It's really great building. Could be built in 30's like a pure modernism.

Really great for a modern building. I like the style of the commercial socket and how it is clearly built in harmony with the neighbouring building in its dimensions. Have a look at "Downtown" Wichita Falls.

It somewhat gives me back a bit of confidence in modernism. ... Is this "Neo-modernism"?

I really like this new building, but I'm afraid it will overshadow the emblematic tower of the New Town Hall from some perspectives.

At one side I think: why there? It'll probably overshadow the Neues Rathaus.
At the other side: It'll probably fit in there and will be a great fill-up for that empty space, in style of the 30's so it will fit in the area.
