Throughout history we've lost countless historical sites to conflict, natural disasters and neglect. UNESCO created Reclaiming History, an online museum that invited the world to help rebuild these monuments. People could help by contributing skills such as image searching, 3D scanning, 3D modeling and photogrammetry. Once the sites were rebuilt, we invited the world to discover the models and learn about their history.
We launched the Reclaiming History with a live event in New York at the Museum of Art and Design. We showcased the online experience and exhibited the first 20 monuments that were rebuilt by 3D printing them.
