3D reconstruction of the medieval market house 'Am Brand' in Mainz
27 February 2012
Mainz's shopping center 'Am Brand' is a location that is steeped in the history of the city and its trading activities. There was already a market house on the same site as early as the 14th century.
But what did the medieval market house look like? This is something that researchers from the Institute of Historical Regional Studies at Mainz University (IGL) and the Institute of Media Design (IMG) at the Mainz University of Applied Sciences have been puzzling over for years. An interdisciplinary team has now succeeded in reconstructing the medieval market house with the aid of other Mainz research institutes.
