Virtual Heritage & 3D-Design

Virtual Heritage

Virtual Heritage in my view is the study of the past by means of re-creating and exploring architecture and townscapes. A situation may not be any longer how it was, or how it was designed by the architect, planner, or the local inhabitants. With help from computerized techniques these situations can be reconstructed, and studied. In my work and studies there has always been much focus on this kind of historical research. Examples include the study of Renaissance Pienza, the Piazza Santa Santissima Annunziata in Florence, and the townscape changes of Groningen.
