City of Ruins

The City of Ruins project to create a 'digital stereoscopic reconstruction of Warsaw destroyed during World War II' for an exhibition starting in August at the Warsaw Rising Museum was a huge piece of work.The article succinctly provides the modelling and process images of the mammoth project that took 30 artists well over a year to process the thousands of historical photos to create the models and then build-up the city before rendering.

The final images and detail shows the almost total devastation of the city and the rendering conveys the hopeless moody feel that such destruction really means. These images show not only the quality of the final work, but much of the modelling and compositing that were required.
