Digital replica of a lost treasure

  • Partner University of Lausanne & Iconem
  • Year 2018

The Institute of Archeology of the University of Lausanne is currently developing an international project with the start-up Iconem (http://iconem.com/en/). Integrating a rich collection of mid-20th century archeological photographs, the aim is to build a 3D model of the recently destroyed Baalshamîn sanctuary in Palmyra, and to use new technologies to inform researchers and the public about this lost heritage.

The researchers will present on 22th and 23th October 2019 their research on digital approaches to preserving at-risk heritage in Boston at the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum and in New-York at NYU’s Institute of Fine Arts (https://www.swissnexboston.org/event/heritage-in-peril-digital-approaches-to-preservation/)
