MONUMERIC. Digitally exploring the city’s heritage!
A number of applications have been developed by local companies to provide greater insight into Strasbourg’s buildings, historical monuments and museum exhibits. These applications cast new light over the city’s heritage.
From September 2014 to September 2015, the city of Strasbourg celebrated the millennium of its Cathedral, highlighting the role of the architects, carpenters, sculptors, stonemasons, smelters and glassmakers who helped build this magnificent monument and subsequently worked on its upkeep and preservation. Now listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list, it bears eloquent witness to the genius of mankind.
The year marks the passage towards the 2 nd millennium of a building which has had an indelible influence on the city and which today soars up over its contemporary urban landscape.
A number of applications have been developed by local companies, as part of the millennium celebrations, to provide greater insight into a building such as the Cathedral. These applications cast new light over a masterpiece of Gothic architecture.
The projects included in the exhibition at the palais Rohan were selected following a call for projects and illustrate the latest technologies developed for exploring outstanding parts of our heritage, architectural and otherwise
The exhibition comprises 4 projects, featuring a range of tools and experiences, including a virtual reality tour of the Cathedral , the 3D reconstitution of the building in the form of a model , an application revealing the secrets of the Cathedral and also a serious game presenting its history in an enjoyable, attractive way.
Strasbourg also stands out through its outstanding network of 11 museums and historical monuments which provide a vivid showcase of the city’s heritage. The museums were also seeking to develop digital tools to highlight the exceptional quality of their collections. The projects from the Musée de l’œuvre Notre-Dame and at the Aubette1928 are presented in the Heitz gallery in the Palais Rohan.
3 other digital projects for exploring and promoting the city’s heritage are to be seen in the gallery.
