Hologram Museum Presentation

For the Historical Museum of the city of Regensburg, various phases of the Neupfarrkirche were to be presented in an informative and exciting multimedia presentation. The concept involved combining digital models with 3D prints. The scaled 3D models with state-of-the-art hologram technology were combined to create an extraordinary exhibition highlight.

Three 3D models were developed for three holograms:


  • miniature copy of the wooden model from 1520 by Hans Hieber
  • 3D-print of the state of construction at around 1537
  • 3D-print of the new church of today

Each of the church models from the 3D printer were placed inside the holograms.

Visual effects complement the respective models with graphics, historical views and pictorial information.

The resulting optical illusion works magically.

The multimedia part of the project was preceded by extensive preparatory work. On the one hand, the data acquisition and 3D modeling of Hieber’s historical wooden model (3D scan in very high detail resolution <0.1 mm).
On the other hand, digital 3D presentations of the Neupfarrkirche were revised by cooperation partners (esp. Martin Dechant, University of Regensburg and Donhauser-Postweiler Architekten). In this way, newly prepared data of the Neupfarrkirche in the state of 1537 and today emerged for the digital 3D presentation. The 3D multimedia film sequences superimposed in the hologram were supplemented with museum-didactic information, each with a short, German narrative text.

The services for this project included:

  • high-resolution photogrammetric 3D documentation of the Hieber model
  • revision of 3D external data
  • 3D printing of three architectural models reduced in scale
  • delivery of three holograms
  • set up 3D scenes & cameras for hologram animations
  • 3D animation & renderings
  • graphic elements for holograms
  • film composition & editing
  • professional narration )
  • synchronization of the 3 hologram showcases
