Modellathon | Digital 3D-Reconstruction Hackathon


The three-dimensional representation of historical objects and architecture is an important field in the Digital Humanities and holds great potential for both science communication and the communication of history in terms of public history. In the course of a modelling competition, a competition for the 3D reconstruction of cultural heritage, students are to digitally model architectural cultural heritage in 3D using CAD programs in the course of the winter semester 2020/2021 on the basis of historical sources. The results in the form of 3D models, films or image series as well as associated texts with background information on the respective project will be presented to the public via a weblog accompanying the project. The best works will then be awarded by an expert jury with cash and non-cash prizes totalling 1,000.00 euros.
