Infocastle: Digital präservierte Kulturgüter in Virtual Reality zum Schutze schwindender Relikte

The master thesis "Infocastle" in Communication Design done by Basem El Koury has been awarded with the Creative Communication Award 2019 in the category Limited Edition Books.

Basem El Koury: "The project for my master's thesis is a VR 3D simulation of the castle "Oberkapfenberg" (Austria), in its original state during the Renaissance. I wanted to bring back the feeling and experience to visitors of that castle, to make them understand, how. To give the thesis book an old and modern appearance, it was bound with the wood from a tree, that originated from the forest, where the castle stands. A slipcase was build with the same wood and an engraving of the logo and a background, that represents the immersion in VR. An hologram of the 3D castle was made and embedded in the front cover."
