I was asked to be part of a large-scale multimedia work involving the mapping of the 'Rathaus', commissioned by the city council of Wismar in celebration of the 30 years 'Wiedervereinigung'(reunion) of east and west Germany. Witness accounts from residents of Wismar were overlaid onto archival footage from the city archives to weave together a story which was aimed to take people back to this pivotal time in history.

Required from me was the technical fulfilment of creating a mapping plan which became the master template for the entire project. This was done through a mixture of architectural plans and photogrammetry(done in MeshRoom) to create a scale-accurate, 3D model (made with Blender) which was used for both reference and visual design.
