1. Together with Prof. Dr. Eichmann, who has been studying the “Stone-Cone Building” for many years, we reconstructed the building process on the basis of the archaeological evidence. The results were visualised in an animation showing the building's entire construction process, from its complex foundation design to reflections about its inner installations. Each step of the building process is shown in detail in order to give an informative overview of the construction of this outstanding building.

    The video explains the construction of the Stone-Cone building in over six minutes. It was made as a visual aid during a conference talk. We therefore did not add any sound, labels or explanations.

Each step of the building process is shown in detail in order to give an informative overview of the construction of this outstanding building.
    The video explains the construction of the Stone-Cone building in over four minutes. It was made as a central piece during the exhibition "Uruk - 5000 years of the megacity", that was displayed in Berlin from April to September 2013 and is displayed in Herne from October 2013 until April 2014.

  3. The animation explains the different areas of the palace and offers an insight into the palace economy and the everyday life. Small-finds that were found in the palace and texts that refer to it were included in our animation. Every detail was researched to create a reconstruction that gives an insight into the world of Old Mesopotamia.
    The video was made as a visual aid during the exhibition "Uruk - 5.000 years of the megacity". We therefore did not add any sound.

  4. During the Seleucid Period (3rd - 2nd century BCE), Uruk (modern Warka/Iraq) was an important religious centre featuring large complexes of sacral architecture, such as the “Bit Resh”. The animation shows the Anu-Antum temple as the central complex of the Bit Resh.

  5. Excavations in the centre of Uruk uncovered a large variety of monumental buildings with often unparalleled architectural features. This animation shows the complex centre of the Late Uruk Period. Due to the poor state of preservation of most buildings, and the uniqueness of this early architecture, the reconstruction was challenging and ambitious, as it had never previously been attempted to this extent.
