Finally, we can release our latest project: The reconstruction of the Great Hall of Karakorum. This medieval Buddhist temple was built upon a complicated terrace, but read for yourselves on our portfolio page. Oh, and there is also a nearly 8 minute long animation explaining the site, terrace, conservation management and reconstruction!

I will participate in a conference called “Archäologie und Rekonstruktion” (Archaeology and Reconstruction) held at the Brugsch-Pascha-Saal, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Geschwister-Scholl-Straße 2-8, 10117 Berlin from the 11th to the 12th December 2014.

Topic of this conference is to define the term “reconstruction” in the field of archaeology as well as to talk about the methodology of visualisation. My personal contribution will talk about the use of archaeological reconstructions as a didactic tool in exhibitions and more general in museums. If you are in Berlin, come by and say hi!

You can find more information about the conference as well as the program here.

Besides our animations during the exhibition “Uruk – 5000 years of megacity”, there was also one made by the “Deutsche Luft- und Raumfahrtgesellschaft” (DLR). We provided the models and the DLR created a flight through space down to Iraq and into Uruk, during the Seleucid Period. You can find the animation and a comprehensive description in the link below.

This is the last missing part of our Uruk exhibition material. The reconstruction of Uruk during the 3rd dynasty of Ur was actually a long finished project, but was enriched by a loose, lifelike reconstruction of the city for the exhibition “Uruk – 5000 years of megacity”. You can read everything about the project on our website, where you also find a short video.

One of our longer animation for the exhibition “Uruk – 5000 years megacity” was the one explaining the Late Uruk Period. We updated our project page of the Late Uruk Period and finally added the animation for you to watch. You’ll find it at the top here or at the bottom of the project page. Enjoy!
