ReichsBaumeister
Level 33 : Artisan Architect
181
was to the projected renewal of the German capital Berlin during the Nazi period, part of Adolf Hitler's vision for the future of Nazi Germany after the planned victory inWorld War II. Albert Speer, the "first architect of the Third Reich", produced many of the plans for the rebuilt city in his capacity as overseer of the project, only a small portion of which was realized between the years 1937 and 1943 when construction took place.

Some projects, such as the creation of a great East-West city axis, which included broadening Charlottenburger Chaussee (todayStraße des 17. Juni) and placing the Berlin victory column in the centre, far away from the Reichstag, where it originally stood, were completed. Others, however, such as the creation of the Große Halle (Great Hall), had to be shelved owing to the beginning of war. A great number of the old buildings in many of the planned construction areas were, however, demolished before the war, and eventually defeat stopped the plans.




At the northern end of the avenue on the site of the Königsplatz (now the Platz der Republik) there was to be a large open forum known as Großer Platz with an area of around 350,000 square metres (3,767,369 square feet). This square was to be surrounded by the grandest buildings of all, with the Führer's palace on the west side on the site of the former Kroll Opera House, the 1894 Reichstag Building on the east side and the third Reich Chancellery and high command of the German Army on the south side (on either side of the square's entrance from the Avenue of Splendours). On the north side of the plaza, straddling the River Spree, Speer planned to build the centrepiece of the new Berlin, an enormous domed building, the Volkshalle (people's hall), designed by Hitler himself. It would still remain the largest enclosed space in the world had it been built. Although war came before work could begin, all the necessary land was acquired, and the engineering plans were worked out. The building would have been over 200 metres (656 feet) high and 250 metres (820 feet) in diameter, sixteen times larger than the dome of St. Peter's Basilica.

Wow. Please a download link!!!
Very well done! The rework of the buildings has done wonders, it looks absolutely perfect. If I may ask a few questions, do some of the buildings have interiors? I know not all are documented but neglecting atleast the interior of the Great Hall and Reichs Kanzlei would be a missed opportunity. Also how much of the plans are you aiming at reconstructing? I imagine doing the entire city would be a bit ridiculous?

i don't approve what the nazis done but we have to admit that Speer architecture was grandiose. It's the hugeness and the absurdness of buildings which get them beautiful. And you made this perfectly ! GREAT job

I love your builds! (I became fascinated in Nazi Buildings after watching the Man in the High Castle). I was wondering when the download was coming? And also, I saw your Russian group thing and was wondering what program u were using to make the people like that (seating, handshake), army of people, scaling down (cars, helmet, etc) and stuff. Thanks!
Thank you. I plan to add the map download when i will complete the north-south axis of the city.
To create this images I use a program such as Cinema 4d and Mine-imator.

This is truely one of the best recreations of Albert Speer's masterpiece. I have participated and also led similar Projects like the Neue Reichskanzlei and I have to say that nationalsocialistic classizism is one of the best Styles so far. Anyway, good Luck with your Project and don't let those moralizers and denunciators demotivate you.

The author is not supporting Nazism in anyway, this is purely for architectual recreation, nothing more.
You're so right! It shames me that Planet Minecraft not removed the project although it has been reported from some users.

This is considered fine by our rules; the author has permission to post it.
It may be compliant. However, if I run this site, I would not racism or Nazi ideas want to have it, even if it is not explicitly prohibited. The question is which public image of Planet Minecraft arises when the first thing you see, are Hitlers megalomaniac monuments.

Unless someone had pointed it out, I wouldn't have know it was of Nazi design and I don't see a single emblem of the Nazi party anywhere. You seem to be fixated on the name/history of a party regime and not the architecture at all, which is the point of PMC: To put forth architectural ideas for recreation and study. The argument has been decided based on the rules.
What's next? Let us build concentration camps in Minecraft? But it is okay. If everyone here believes the buildings of the Nazi regime are simply architecture, then probably I am wrong. I just hope, no one in the future believes a neonazi-party is simply a party.

Let me just say one thing before I say goodbye from the discussion:

My grandfather died in World War II, my father was bullied as a child because he was not allowed to go into the Hitler Youth because my grandfather had fallen in Russia, shredded by shrapnel. My grandma had given the regime enough. This brave woman did Hitler not even give her eldest son.

My other grandfather came in 1947, nearly three years after the war, from Russian captivity. They had thought he would die anyway, so starved as he was. But he made it home.

My parents starved later in the postwar period too.

And we are Germans. We were the people of the perpetrators in this war.
Unimaginable what people of other nations have suffered under the yoke of the Nazis. The Nazis were inhumane Monsters and so these buildings are inhumane. Simply inhuman architecture.

If there would be this buildings today, no one could play Minecraft, no one would live in freedom and no one could say, what he thinks.
But it`s only architecture. More than 50 million deaths and their families would not call it simple architecture.

In addition, the builder makes a Nazi role play, where you take the role of a high-ranking Nazi.
There are so many great things that you can do. Nobody should enact or rebuild this horrible terror.

It will not be deleted because it has been reported? Then delete it, because this project based on the ideas of a man who is responsible for the deaths of millions of people: Adolf Hitler.

No...it won't be deleted because:
"The author is not supporting Nazism in anyway, this is purely for architectual recreation, nothing more."

to which you replied
"You're so right!"

and then suggested that it should be removed. But what he said is the reason why we aren't removing it.
well, i dont think so. i remember that i reported it, nothing happened. i think it is definitely nazism, look at his name:"reichsbaumeister" and look at two pictures: u can see nazi symbols. but i accept that the moderators dont delete it, and i wont yell at them, i wont report it again.
I have overlooked a little "not"...

you shouldnt close your eyes when it comes to history, and this is sadly a part of our history ? Do u want that people forget it ? Your points are so invalid
I see a few comments on this project speaking negatively due to the undeniable reputation of the Nazis. While I do not agree with or support Nazi views, it doesn't appear that you do either, and that instead this appears to be a re-enactment of alternate history, which is something that should be taken into consideration by future commentators (seriously, guys, haven't you heard of Wolfenstein?). I have always been somewhat fascinated with what Hitler had planned for Berlin in terms of architectural reconstruction of Berlin (emphasizing this part so those who skim comments know what to look at). I assume you yourself have a similar fascination with this, and I personally am impressed with your work.

While Speer's vision of Berlin's architectural future is at least debatable and surely very interesting to view in Minecraft, this project seems too be heavily inspired by Nazi ideology. I don't speak russian but to post the complete German National Anthem with all three verses where two of them are strictly avoided in germany because they remind too much on the dark chapter in germanys history - that's a clear statement. As clear as posting Nazi flags and pictures of the hitler greeting on your website and in your project. If you are russian - i am surprised by this enthusiasm for Nazism. All though this project looks very interesting buildwise - no diamond from me. Rather a request to the admins to take this project down for above reasons.
Could be role play.

Don't get me wrong - I don't see a problem with the build itself. Speers and Hitlers ideas for the so called Germania are discussed since over 70 years. It's architectural history and nothing is wrong about showing their megalomaniac plans. One may like it or not.

But I totally disapprove that this project does not only show the architecture but glorifies nazi ideology by showing flags with swastika or - following the posted link - Nazi skins, hitler greeting and controversial music.

It's does not violate any of the PMC rules though, so you can't exactly get it removed for these reasons.
Nice work, I hope to see interior of the Reichskanzlei soon :)
Seems like you did the interior too, which is awesome. Did you make it all by yourself or is it a team build? Tried to get some more information from your link but I don't really understand Russian :S great pictures though
I work alone . Premises in virtually arranged ( in the Chancellery much finished interiors ) . On account of the links .. It Russian social network , where I post news. Therefore, nothing but the translator , I advise you can not. By the way, sorry for my english.
Reconstruction of Nazi buildings? Nobody need this. Don't forget the holocaust.
Typical german leftist regressive. Nobody allowed opinions that are different than mine or I don't agree with. How about Holodomor? have you heard of it? Of course not you only know holocaust. Go get raped by ''refugee''

Nobody needed this? That's pretty much everything on this website.
The building plans are a 100% expression of Nazi ideology as such and shows the world power plans of the Third Reich very clearly. Whether someone finds the buildings beautiful or not, lies in the eye of the beholder of course. But even if someone finds the buildings beautiful, he should never forget the background, that the planers of this building killed 6 million jews, 50 million russians and many more people all over europe. Without adequate explanation, in young people may give the impression that the Third Reich had not been so bad or worst it had been even very cool.

Okay and your point is? "Don't forget the holocaust", you already said that. What? Do you want them to add something to the description?
And there are so many things, you could do in your life and so manys things you could build in Minecraft, there is no need to play Hitler.
Visit the webside of the builder above. They play the Third Reich as Role playing game.... My point is, that this thread had to be deleted. As I say: Nobody need this.

I honestly don't care about their website (I saw it already its ehhh). If people wanna play Hitler let em idgaf they aint hurting NOBODY (the Nazis did but I doubt these people actually will). This thread has no basis to be deleted as the post does not VIOLATE any guidelines, therefore feelings aside there is no basis for deletion.

Personally, I just like the build, as a little bit of alt-history.
