【Introduction】:Not a German city has changed its face in recent years as much as Dresden. The Saxon state capital continues to develop consistently, and is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe 20 years after Mau-erfall. The historical buildings of the city are increasingly entering into a dialogue with buildings of contemporary architecture.

Not a German city has changed its face in recent years as much as Dresden. The Saxon state capital continues to develop consistently, and is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe 20 years after Mau-erfall. The historical buildings of the city are increasingly entering into a dialogue with buildings of contemporary architecture. In the past few years, unique projects such as the new building of the Saxon Landtag and the International Congress Center as well as the dome-shaped glass roof of the Kleiner Schlosshof in the Residenzschloss have been realized.

An Arrow Through Dresden's History

In 2011, the prestigious "New York Times" published a list of 41 places to visit this year. Dresden was the only German city to be mentioned with the newly opened Militaryist Museum of the German Armed Forces. The design for the new building comes from the American star architect Daniel Libeskind. The Dresden Museum is thus a series of world-famous buildings designed by Libeskind.

The historic arsenal building is penetrated by a wedge-shaped, asymmetrical new building, the transparent façade of metal lamellas overlapping the massive old building. The Dresdner Keil represents an incision both in the external form and the interior of the museum

New construction penetrates into the spatial structure of the old building and opens up the visitor at all levels spatial interrelation and views. Like an arrow, the giant "V" points to the inner city of Dresden and, in its geometric form, reminds one of Dresden's urban areas, destroyed in the bomb night of February 13, Today the viewpoint of the wedge offers a magnificent view of the city, which is shining in new beauty.

The Albertinum---An Ark for art

After the Dresden art treasures were threatened in the summer of 2002 by the "Elbe flood" of the Elbe and could be saved only with great effort from the underground depots of the Staatliche Kunst-sammlungen Dresden, it was decided to expand the Albertinum by a highly water-secure depot. The Berlin office Staab Architekten adapted the Albertinum to the technical requirements of a modern museum operation. Above the 1,800-square-meter inner courtyard of the building, a bridge-like, two-storey building has been suspended at a height of twelve meters since 2010, in which the depots and workshops of the Dresden State Art Collections are located. Under the construction, another central space, the Lichthof. He is used as a museum guide and space for events.

The Quarters at Neumarkt

Visitors who think they have visited Dresden once and have seen everything are deceiving themselves. One of the most recent completed construction projects shows that the state capital is always in motion: the quarter VIII between the Dresden Castle and the Johanneum, in the middle of the Old Town. The area is one of the eight quarters that have been rebuilt in the last few years around the Neumarkt. In its structure, the area approaches the existing urban outline and traces the historical course of the road. The famous city composition of the Neumarkt was formed in the time of August the Strong and in its overall appearance with the Frauenkirche in the center was considered a highlight of Baroque architecture. During the attack on the city on February 13, 1945, the area was almost completely destroyed. Only decades later the discussion about the reorganization of the Neumarkt began with the reconstruction of the Frauenkirche.Some 20 "Leitbauten" in the main floor plan and facade have been reconstructed in detail from around 60 historically valuable buildings. 40 other buildings have been created with historical facades and new ground plans.
