The Archaeology of Architecture

Year: 2013-2014

Supervision:Dr. Patricia Lulof

Modelling and research: Maarten Sepers

The Archaeology of Architecture focused on the investigation and the development of a new, interchangeable format and method to publish digital 3/4D reconstructions of (ancient) architecture and cityscapes. The reconstruction of two (lost) monuments in Rome served as a case study: Old Saint Peter’s1 and the Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus2.
