Re-Printing Architectural Heritage
As scientists in private and public settings develop new technologies for 3D scanning and 3D printing at the scale of paintings, ornaments, building parts, they encounter questions related both to technical possibilities and usability of 3D printing at the scale of the building with high resolution. We are convinced that these developments can propel technological, heritage and architectural design discussions forward in each field and in connection to each other. We propose a pilot that includes high-definition scanning and 3D printing of a pilot structure, the Hippolytuskerk Middelsum, at a building scale that challenges high-precision 3D printing developed for paintings to take on the building scale, its multiple dimensions and materials, and to connect to heritage specialist and designers to rethink the applicability of the new technique in academia, practice and education.
