City of Maastricht
The conquest of Maastricht
In the 18th century the French made maquettes of important fortified cities. They did this in preparation of possible wars and later to show of with their conquest. The maquette of Maastricht was one of the two hundred maquettes that was built.
In 2018 the maquette of Maastricht was 3D-scanned by Willem Beex during a maintenance period. These 3D-scans form the basis for a research project about a potential exposition together with the City of Maastricht, Centre Céramique, Tijdlab, the BUas and Dutch Rose Media.
Visitors can visit ancient Maastricht through different storylines. Volumetric video adds a personalized experience to the stories of the digitalized maquette.
