The Virtual National Exhibition (1909)

In 2009 the National Exhibition of 1909, originally held at Tangkrogen in Aarhus, was virtually reconstructed, celebrating the centenary of this exhibition. The 3D model generated a historical universe which could be navigated by using a Wii remote in the 3D cinema, enabling users to move around a digital source representation of the 1909 exhibition. A virtual universe could be created using source material including the original hand-drawn architectural drafts. In other words, the model was not only a representation of the exhibition itself, but also a way of presenting these wonderful old drawings.
