For a while now, we have been working on several reconstructions for the Uruk Visualisation Project. On our website you will find examples from the Late Uruk Period as well as the Seleucid Period. Besides that, we visualised the ziggurat of the Ur-III Period as well as the famous White Temple, the Stone-Cone Building and the Sin-kashid Palace. Currently, we are working on two new Uruk-related restitutions that we will write about soon.
Most of these works will be presented in the upcoming large Uruk exhibition in Berlin. From the 25th of April to the 8th of September 2013 the Pergamon Museum in Berlin will host the exhibition “Uruk – 5000 years of the megacity”! After that, from October 2013 to April 2014, the exhibition will move to the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen in Mannheim.
As part of the exhibition, our reconstructions will be displayed in order to help with the understanding of the city’s structure and its prominent architecture. They will be seen as animations and stills and will also be featured in the accompanying exhibition catalogue. We are very excited about that and look forward to this big exhibition. To get further information on the exhibition itself, you can visit the official website.
