Pragerstrasse 2c, Picture 1, Edited Version, Dresden, Saxony, Germany, 2011
This was an interesting, almost certainly Communist-era building that I found on Pragerstrasse. It's interesting to note that only a few years ago something like this would have been repulsive, either for being Communist or being ugly 1960's (probably) era, as is stripped and tasteless even in the few decorations that it has. However, this mosaic is interesting, and suddenly buildings like this have become interesting in that they're very much of a particular historic time period. Indeed, in the West architecture wasn't radically different. This building is now the Pullman Hotel, and they've deliberately given it letting up near the top (in a later photo) which deliberately tries to look like it's from the 1960's. It's done in a sort of 1960's fake handwritten type of font. (Again, watch this space.)
