Rebuilding Jewish Przemysl?

Blog-friend Philip alerted me to this fascinating project. It's worth clicking through - even if, like me, you can't read Polish. There are many interesting photos and diagrams.
Recently an engineering student unveiled plans to rebuild from scratch the entire Jewish quarter of Przemysl, including (rather excitingly) the old synagogue. There are some computer generated images and details here:

I do hope this project is realised as it'd be wonderful to regain so much of the city's history.

Here is one of many computer-generated views of the reconstructed Jewish quarter. The dark brick structure is the Tempel.

This is the Alte Synagogue to the right (I think!) with a glass wall added.  Artistic license for the rebuilders?
