Colossal: Ancient Ruins Reconstructed with Architectural GIFs

MARCH 23, 2018 LAURA STAUGAITIS

Parthenon, Greece

Today, views of the world’s ancient architectural wonders are firmly based in their current state of ruin, leaving to visitors’ imaginations the original glory of structures like the Parthenon, Pyramid of the Sun, and Temple of Luxor. NeoMam, in a project for Expedia, has resurrected several ancient buildings through a series of gifs. In a matter of seconds, centuries of natural and intentional damage and decay are reversed to reveal a rare glimpse at what the original structures would have looked like. The creative contractors behind the labor-intensive renderings are Maja Wro?ska (previously) and her husband Przemek Sobiecki, who works as This Is Render.  (via designboom)

Colossal: Architectural Gifs Restore Damaged Cultural Sites Around the World

JULY 28, 2020 GRACE EBERT 

 Hatra, Al-Jaz?rah, Iraq

Evoking a bit of time-travel, NeoMam (previously) recently animated a series of gifs that restore impressive, human-made structures around the globe to pristine condition. Although the six landmarks are now in some form of decay and have made UNESCO’s list of endangered world heritage, the short clips digitally reconstruct the sites to show what they’d look like had they not faced the ravages of time

Included in this round of restoration are a remnant of Hatra, a large fortified city that was capital of the first Arab Kingdom, and the hundreds of islets that make up Nan Modol in Micronesia. UNESCO designated these landmarks in danger because of natural and human-generated threats like earthquakes, military conflict, and urbanization. Dig into the history behind the six restorations, which were completed in partnership with BudgetDirect and architect Jelena Popovic, in addition to other at-risk locations on UNESCO’s site.

Nan Madol, Temwen Island, Federated States of Micronesia

  Leptis Magna, District of Khoms, Libya

 Jerusalem, Israel

Palmyra, Tadmur, Homs Governorate, Syria

 Fort San Lorenzo, Province of Colon, District of Cristobal, Panama
