Workshop: Real & replica

21 June 2019 09:00 till 12:30 - Location: Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, Berlage rooms - By: Communication BK

On 21 June, the follow-up workshop 'Real & replica' is organised by the Design & History research programme. The workshop builds upon the results from the roundtable at the Mauritshuis on 17 April 2019.

What are the potentials and future developments of digital technologies for documentation, conservation and dissemination of heritage? A first roundtable on 17 April 2019 at the Mauritshuis showcased a 3D print (REPLICA) of the Golden Room of the Mauritshuis featuring the original colours of the Golden Room (REAL).

This second workshop REAL & REPLICA brings together the same stakeholders from academia and practice. The goal is to collect ideas, to identify challenges and to describe needs from the specific workfield that go beyond the state of the art. The objective is to develop new ideas for joint projects and grant proposals. Through this workshop, the Design & History research programme aims to stimulate the discussion of new research issues and connect digital tools with ethical questions, historical inquiry, theories and practices of documentation, conservation and dissemination.


The event is moderated by Americo Mateus (GUDA, Lisbon), and Carola Hein, Tino Mager, and Uta Pottgiesser (Design & Heritage research programme BK Bouwkunde).
