Archaeology of Architecture

Embedded Research

This research project (2013-2014) focuses on the investigation and, eventually, the development of a new, interchangeable format and method to publish digital 3/4D reconstruction of (ancient) architecture and cityscapes.

Presentation and publication of virtually reconstructed ancient architecture are not yet fully developed, that is, many virtual reconstructions exist, but there is no format available wherein the different phases of reconstruction may be visualized, nor accounted for in a scientifically accepted manner. And, little or no methods or formats are available to adequately express degrees of accuracy and interpretative steps that led to the final (illustration of the) reconstruction.

This research project focuses on the investigation and, eventually, the development of  a new, interchangeable format and method to publish digital 3/4D reconstruction of (ancient) architecture and cityscapes, with the reconstruction of two (lost) monuments in Rome as a point of departure: Old Saint Peter’s and the Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus.
