See Yearning as It Used to Be

Reconstructive projects are always extremely demanding. They have to be perfected on two levels: historical coherence and the emotional and aesthetic impact of the image.

3-D reconstruction of ancient cities and structures has become a fixed component of any exhibit in recent years. In collaboration with the Landesmuseum Württemberg, FaberCourtial reconstructed the interior of a palace, and populated it with filmed actors for the exhibit, “Treasures of Old Syria: The Discovery of the Kingdom of Qatna”. The stereoscopic images of reconstructed tombs, emotionally gripping film installations, and the sound of a language that no longer exists accompany the visitor into the world of old Syria.

To achieve similar results, we offer you a high degree of expertise in the field of architectural-historical reconstructions with our technical team and our in-house historian.

The historian will translate your research, or do his own research with a focus on public history. This includes all the necessary details in the archives, as well as insight into the museum institution. This research is then implemented in extraordinarily detailed reconstructions through numerous sources, such as the developed supply of buildings, preserved original constructions, contemporary descriptions, comparable buildings, and of course paintings and drawings that have been handed down.

Our sensitive digital artists convert the research into living images, often through meticulous work, that fascinate with their realistic presentation and correspond to all scientific insights. The viewers experience a total impression that puts the earlier way of life in its original spatial context and expands the historical research into historical experience.
