Digital Reconstruction of Archaeological Architecture with 3D Rendering

Every year archaeologists dig up many ancient buildings, statues even entire cities. These archaeological discoveries give us insights on how our civilization developed and how the ancestors lived. However, because of the ravages of time, these ancient architectures are mostly in ruins. Scientists are able to draw how they could look in the old days. However, drawings and layouts do not really let scientist see the details.  This is where 3D architectural rendering can help.

3D architectural visualization is the most modern and most powerful graphic tool available today. With the use of 3D rendering, architects and engineers are able to preview building as close to reality as possible even before the construction begun. More and more architects and engineers are depending on this graphic technology for their construction projects. They use it for client presentations as well as to correct possible errors.

The power of 3D rendering and 3D animations is almost limitless, many games now like The Sims use 3D rendering in creating realistic gaming environments. Entire cities can be created digitally and not only do they look realistic, they are also highly interactive.  Those who have played RPG games will know just how advanced 3D technology has become.

Ruined Cities Can Become Whole Again Through 3D Rendering

Archeologists can work with 3D rendering professionals to see how ruined cities like Pompeii and Ostia Antica looked like and maybe explore them a little like they are really there. This would double the modern scientists understanding of how the residents in those cities lived.  Digitally recreating ancient cities and ruins in photo-realistic 3D would have been impossible in the past. Nevertheless, the technology is now present and it can easily be done.

To rebuild ancient ruins and architecture digitally using 3D rendering is a good idea, but why stop there? Even in this age, there are many ancient structures, which are in danger being destroyed. The pyramids, the sphinx, the Taj mahal and others are at the mercy of time.  Using 3D rendering technology, we can preserve these structures digitally so that even if they get destroyed the next generation can still learn how magnificent they are. These 3D renderings can also be used for future rebuilding of these beloved wonders of architecture.

Ancient architectures are testament to the greatness of the human spirit, the ingenuity that sets us apart from other animals. To allow these structures to get lost in memory of the future generations is to deprive that generation of inspiration to do great and wonderful things. With 3D rendering technology, realistically recreating ancient ruins in computers and preserving standing ancient structures are not only a dream but reality.  It is the duty of this generation for the future generations to come.
