The Art of Reconstruction

This project (2012-2013) aimed to explore the usage of digital 3D-reconstructions to support research to historical and archaeological architectural settings.

Goals

This was the first and one year pilot-project of the 4D Research Lab initiated in 2011. The ‘The Art of Reconstruction’ aimed to explore the usage of digital 3D-reconstructions to support research to historical and archaeological architectural settings. More specifically, the aim is to enhance the research on buildings that are nowadays partly or entirely lost, buildings that once were keystones in the formation of local identities. Another goal was to contribute to the development of a methodology for 3D modeling as a scientific research tool.  As a case-study for the pilot-project the temple of Caprifico (Latium) was chosen because it had already been thoroughly studied, published and reconstructed with traditional illustrations.

Results

The research, results and 3D reconstruction were presented and published at the Digital Heritage Congress 2013 at Marseille and The Golden Age of Tarquinius congress at Rome. An article on the archaeological results is in preparation and ‘The Art of Reconstruction’ is asked to publish its full 3D reconstructions in Elsevier’s online digital magazine.
