Abstract

Digital reconstructions or 3D reconstructions are an important medium to open results of research to the public. The main potential of such reconstructions give an opportunity to present the research in different ways. Besides this, digital reconstruction as a crossing point of various scientific disciplines, like architecture, history of architecture and archaeology, became more and more a tool for researches during the last five years. Bringing the results of excavations into the third dimension they consolidate the knowledge of these disciplines. Serious questions or unclear situations of a building structure can be easier discussed and often be solved. This lecture shows the potential of digital reconstructions as a tool for research at different stations of the research process and provides an insight into the research in this special part of the cultural heritage. There is a focus on the research with the digital reconstruction before, during and after the reconstruction process corresponding to its role in excavation process. The special potentials of this researching method are demonstrated on digital reconstruction projects done at the Technical University of Darmstadt over the last 20 years. One of these examples is the project „Ephesus during the Byzantine Period“ with the Austrian Archaeological Institute, Austrian Academy of Sciences, Romano-Germanic Central Museum, Mainz, Technical University Munich, Vienna University of Technology as project partners and its main goal to consolidate and visualize the results of excavation and research. Besides this, the lecture takes a critical look into the future of the digital reconstruction as a researching tool, the chances and the risks of this method.
