Event details

The project by Jonathan Ravasz and Filip Ruisl showcases the possibility of architectural reconstruction in the virtual domain. The project targets badly maintained buildings of cultural heritage by providing visual information (AR – augmented reality) on their original state. Meanwhile the conservation of building sites is intrinsically intertwined with market speculations (real estate, legal issues), digital design provides creative freedom and is more accessible to the public. The project leaves the properties untouched without any physical intervention except from those (markers) that the smartphones can read. By using your mobile, the app displays how architecture existed in its purest form according to the architectural drawings. By doing so it creates a contrast between decaying reality and the perfection of the cybercast. Part of the festival program, the Unfolding app will be demonstrated as a guided tour in the 7th district (groups of 10 can register in advance. Rsvp to festival@realityresearch.info). The case study explores the former Makkhetes Restaurant (now Holmi-ház) designed by the reknown Hungarian architect, Mihály Pollack in classicist style.
