Brežice water tower - virtualisation

21.04.2023 18:30

Presentation of a virtual image

You are cordially invited to a presentation of the pilot project Water Tower Brežice - Virtualisation, which will take place on Friday, 21 April 2023, at 6.30 p.m. at the Water Tower in Brežice.

The water tower represents a special architectural monument of technical culture in Slovenia and a great potential for processing with new media technologies.

In the pilot project of the RUK network, the KIT4 Association, in cooperation with KIBLA2LAB, presents it as the first artistic virtual image of a protected monument in Slovenia that is more than 40 metres high.

The entire image of the tower, embedded in the urban environment, was captured using a drone, LiDAR scanner and photogrammetry techniques. The basic virtual display presents the entire 360 degree image of the building in a very attractive way, enhanced by the principles of artistic intervention in the rendered image.

The attractive virtual image can be viewed inside the tower and is available to visitors during the opening hours of the Posavje Museum Brežice from Monday to Saturday between 10 am and 8 pm and on Sundays and public holidays between 2 pm and 8 pm.

The project for the virtualisation of the Brežice Water Tower, prepared by the KIT4 Association in cooperation with KIBLA2LAB and the Posavje Museum Brežice, is a pilot project selected under the KID PINA call for proposals within the RUK Network (JP-PR-RUK_1_2022), co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund and the Republic of Slovenia (Ministry of Culture).
