IAM Open Lecture #17
Gerald Kozicz & Ludwig Grimm
Behind the visual: Digitalization of Indian Stone Architecture
18:00 Wednesday 13 December 2017
IAM Media Lab, Kronesgasse 5/3
The lecture will present the current state of the 3-year FWF-Project on North-Indian Nagara architecture currently conducted at IAM. The first part will focus on an introduction to this specific form of Indian sacral architecture, with their architectural history of the monuments and their wider cultural context. The second part will be dedicated to the methodologies implemented for digital reconstruction, being a mixture of automated processes and digital craftsmanship. It will present the current results while explaining the further goals and challenges arising by the limitations of possible on-site documentation and technical restrictions.
Gerald Kozicz currently holds a position as project leader in the Nagara FWF project at IAM. He has previously been in leading positions in three Austrian Science Fund (FWF) Projects on Buddhist architecture in the Indo-Tibetan context. He is a graduate of TU Graz with more than 20 years of experience in various aspects of Asian architecture and culture.
Ludwig Grimm is a project assistant in the same research group, being responsible for the digitalization processes. Besides studying architecture with a focus on contemporary tools, he is working as a freelancer in the field of digital object visualization and also physical modeling.
