Most / all of the replacements are just awful. What a shame for Vienna.

I wouldn't mind it that much if it was only the interior and kept the original facade, but this is just criminal. How on earth can you feel ok as an architect who studied for almost a decade, and still doing that.

I really doubt architects designed these buildings..its common in lots of countrie s with relaxed plannign laws to not need an architect to be part of the construction process, and seeing as until recently you could demolish buildings without a permit in Vienna Im guessing it is one of these places with extremely relaxed planning regulations

Incredible. Even in my country, where few people care about our architectural heritage, we have very strict laws regarding renovation and reconstruction in historical areas. It's a shame for Vienna.

Robert, do you see the difference between deliberate demolition of an architectural monument for a new crap construction and war destruction? even if the bombing you speak of was more of a cruel scientific experiment rather than a military operation.

Where are you from?

Red colour shows buildings that were destroyed in Moscow Kremlin after the revolution:



Chudov monastery. Destroyed in 1930:



Almost 30 years later empty plot was busy by this:



Voznesenskiy monastery and Nikolaevsky palace. Both were destroyed in 1929:





They were replaced by a new building that was destroyed too a couple years ago. There were plans to rebuild destroyed buildings but seems the idea on hold at the moment:



This church was destroyed in 1928:



The Monument to Emperor Alexander II was completely destroyed in 1928:



This church was destroyed in 1932:



And the oldest church of Moscow (and the oldest building of a city) was destroyed in 1933:

I actually prefer the modern building to the building it replaced, in the first example

Ah sorry, forgot to mention this building. It was destroyed in 1959:



It also looked different before reconstruction in the middle of 19 century:



The monastery was behind it.

Moscow. Borodin's revenue house. Originally built in 1902, this neoclassic building was redesigned during the Stalin's era. It was demolished in 2018

It's about the unique architectural ensemble of the 14th-19th c, and this is no place for a vile gray khrushchevka which is clearly out of a medieval citadel and royal castle.
