This project started in 2009 as a collaboration between a Duke faculty member and a Duke undergraduate, Umberto Plaja. Our goal is to explain the evolution of a medieval structure over 1000 years of its history, from Early Christian basilica to beautiful Gothic church. Because parts were added and subtracted around an original nucleus, the history of the site is difficult and complicated to explain to visitors. Our model aims to help explain through a series of visualizations the sequence of transformations of this important space.
