Urban development of


Hildesheim Marketing GmbH

Completed: 2015

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.
