Continuing the theme of my previous post about restoration work in Berlin the friend who sent me the link to the odd idea of gothicising St Pauls in London which I posted earlier in the week, and who is assiduous in sharing such online discoveries, sent me a link a while ago to a piece about the progress in the rebuilding work on the Berlin Royal Palace. I have been meaning to post it, but have only now got round to it. It can be seen here.
I wrote about this project in Rebuilding the Berlin Stadtschloss
Both the Palace rebuilding and the plan to reorder St Hedwig's Cathedral point to the wealth of modern Germany, but in both cases the disinclination to put back completely what was there before the destruction occurred is, in my opinion, to say the least unfortunate, and as indeed I indicated in the post linked to above.
