Multimedia exhibition about the Zwinger officially opened

Markus Wacker
In 2007 the Nymphenbad was under renovation. In order to show the visitors this hidden gem in the Dresden Zwinger, a visualization film was created. This soon resulted in a much larger project with around 30 students and employees. The work was initially organized via htw-dresden.de/~zwinger and resulted in an own documentation tool DokuVis by Jonas Bruschke. Further development will be funded by the DFG in 2022/2023 as part of the IDOVIR project.

Very detailed 3D models of existing buildings as well as drafts and ideas were created and evaluated in a feasibility study for a museum presentation. The tender for implementation won mbox Berlin, who implemented the exhibition as a multimedia VR spectacle Zwinger Xperience. The exhibition was officially opened on June 28th, 2021. On the occasion of the opening, the MDR Sachsenspiegel reported on the project and the exhibition.

Jonas Bruschke
After more than 4.5 years, the HistStadt4D project is now coming to a close by the end of April 2021. We have used the time well for our research activities and also the 4D Browser has constantly evolved. But, the development of our research tool is not over yet. Several projects will continue to work on and with the 4D Browser:

Denkmalschutz4D – Digitale stadträumliche Vermittlung von anthropogenen Einflussfaktoren und Schutzmaßnahmen zu baulichem Kulturerbe
HistKI – AI-based support of image source research and criticism

The 4D Browser is still available: 4dbrowser.urbanhistory4d.org
