1). The Exhibit – Revisiting the Roman Forum: from Pen to Pixel, Methods of Documentation in the 20th and 21st Centuries (2 April to 31 October, 2014). Rome, Italy. DHARMA (2018).

The Exhibit displays detailed architectural drawings and watercolors, a 3D digital model of the Forum and its monuments and high-resolution panoramic photographs, accompanied by detailed architectural analysis.

Launching in conjunction with the 2014 Digital Future of World Heritage Symposium, Revisiting the Roman Forum: from Pen to Pixel, Methods of Documentation in the 20th and 21st Centuries, the first 3D exhibit on historic preservation in the Roman Forum, is on display from April to Oct 2014 in Rome, Italy.

nd13

The aim of the exhibition is to provide architects, art historians, academics and the general public with a greater understanding of the development of architectural documentation of excavations at the Roman Forum in the last 100 years from 1905 to 2013.

The primary objectives of the research and culminating exhibition is to advance scholarship and knowledge on the recent developments at the Roman Forum. This Exhibit is the result of research and scholarship by the Digital Historic Architectural Research and Material Analysis (DHARMA) Lab, conducted since summer 2010, in 3D documenting the Roman Forum, Rome, Italy. Though the Roman Forum is a well-known site with over 4 million visitors every year, the Italian cultural ministry notes that few know its real value and historic significance. The goal of our research has been to strengthen the disconnect that exists between scholars of various fields working on this World Heritage Site, the outputs they produce and its relevance to tourists and visitors. To cover this gap of public knowledge and understanding of the Forum, the exhibit will be accompanied by detailed historic text and drawings, materials on Giacomo Boni’s documentation, along with watercolor and 3D high-definition DHARMA documentation, in cooperation with Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Roma.

The Exhibit displays detailed architectural drawings and watercolors, a 3D digital model of the Forum and its monuments and high-resolution panoramic photographs, accompanied by detailed architectural analysis.

Focus on the documentation of the Roman Forum was developed as the consequence of an existing need in the architectural community to integrate innovative methods of digital documentation and 3D scanning with traditional hand measuring techniques. The resulting highly accurate raw data acquired during this three-year project can be used to produce incredibly precise measured drawings by hand and computer, which provide a basis for generating highly critical and analytical work. The larger objectives of the exhibit are to draw attention to the historic methods of the early scientific documentation at the Roman Forum and the evolution of these methods, providing a basis for new methods of documentation to be developed and utilized in the field today and in the future.

nd19

The Exhibit is divided into four distinct sections to provide a greater understanding of the history of documentation, instrumentation, results of historic and present studies at the forum, comparisons of individual temples as based on current data acquisition methods in confrontation with historic studies and 3D views of the Forum to architects, academics and the general public. This layout allows visitors to gain a comprehensive understanding of the Forum as a whole, while being able to gain greater understanding of its individual monuments in a manner that has never been possible before.

Forthcoming Summer 2014, Rome Forum Exhibit and Catalogue, “New Techniques and Traditions”, Exhibit of 19th century work of Ecole des Beaux-Arts architects, materials on Giacomo Boni’s documentation, water color and 3D High definition DHARMA documentation, in cooperation with Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Roma and World Heritage Center of UNESCO.

2). DHARMA Lab uses both traditional and innovative methods of documentation of World Heritage sites. In July 2010, the DHARMA Lab, in cooperation with the Sopritendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Roma, undertook a project at the Roman Forum, a World Heritage site —the center of political, religious, commercial, and judicial life in ancient Rome—to measure, document, and draw large areas of the historic site. Employing the latest optical technology, a high definition-surveying laser, and Gigapan the team was able to document the existing state of the site in unprecedented detail. Traditional methods of hand-measuring and photogrammetry were conducted to supplement the data gathered through this digital technique. In a continuing partnership with the Soprintendenza, the D.H.A.R.M.A. Lab produced detailed architectural drawings, a 3-D digital model, and high-resolution panoramic photographs, with detailed analysis forthcoming.

nd23

Students at Notre Dame have spend the Fall 2010 in the World Heritage Studies course, under the Historic Preservation concentration at the school, rendering the data scanned at the Roman Forum site in vellum and water color. To date these are the most precise measured drawings that have been made from this ancient city, the cradle of western civilization. We are presently in conversation with UNESCO and the Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Roma, Ministry of Heritage and Culture and the Archaeological Service, Rome to create a joint exhibit on the documentation of the Forum from the 19th through the early 21st century tentatively in late summer 2013/2014.

nd24

Permission was granted by the Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni, Archeologici di Roma, Ministry of Heritage and Culture to accurately measure and draw the monuments and ruins at the Roman Forum. Working on site in July 2010 a team of Notre Dame School of Architecture faculty and students produced 27 scans, 30 digital panoramic photography views, in addition to collecting hand-measured data. Over the following months, the DHARMA team produced a series of detailed drawings and watercolors based on the raw field data and panoramic views. Many of the original and derivative works and research findings were displayed in a 2014 Exhibit in Rome and detailed in various publications.
