Urban Model Munich
State capital Munich
On the occasion of an exhibition commemorating 850 years of the history of the urban development and planning of the city of Munich, the city planning office developed an idea for an exhibit of a three dimensional depiction of Munich. On an 8 meter by 3 meter large wall, a current map of the city of Munich as a black and white drawing was transmitted on a scale of 1:5000. The interesting sectors of the city were pasted in front of the drawing as a model. The task was to produce a model by machine from the available 3D data of the survey office. Within the course of time, the exhibition is to be continually enhanced by new models. The production of the models was done in cooperation with the Department of Information and Communication Technology in Architecture of the Technical University of Darmstadt.
