Leipzig is not only old houses. The new Augusteum is the main building of the university in Leipzig. There old Augusteum was damaged during the war, while the church next to it was saved from war damages. That did not help in 1968 when the communist regime applied dynamite to it all. This new Augusteum and the Paulinerkirsche were inaugurated in 2012, and I find this a good example of modern architecture.
