Urban development of
Hildesheim Marketing GmbH
Commissioned by the Hildesheim Marketing GmbH, the model of Hildesheim shows the modern city as it presents itself to visitors today. It was first installed in a temporary exhibition at the Roemer und Pelizaeus Museum Hildesheim and is now on permanent display at the Hildesheim Welcome Centre.
A projection onto the model visualises the changing urban landscape from the early Middle Ages to the present, based on the newest scientific researches. A synchronous presentation on a screen shows images and provides further information in the form of texts
The model measures 1.9 x 1.2 metres and is executed on a scale of 1:800. Terrain and city were 3D printed in PMMA as a unit. Buildings of special interest such as churches are rendered in greater detail, while the rest of the urban fabric is depicted in a highly pared down fashion.
