I worked on this project for over a year now and am very delighted to have finished it. This project was an attempt to virtually recreate my school building and most of its defining interior.
The foundation of the building was laid in 1868 in a town in Saxony and was used as a school ever since. During the many political changes in Germany in the 20st century, the school was renamed several times, until after the German reunification it hold the name Luisenstift again. The name was chosen in memory of Luise Henriette von Mangoldt, who donated for a female working class school in Dresden.
Now in 2020 the old building will be restored and partially demolished. The project is an attempt of preserving the current character of the school in a modern and interactive way, so that future comparisons are made possible. In order to achieve this, I created an application with Unreal Engine 4, that allows the user to walk and inspect the school from the in- and outside.
All of the assets, with some exceptions of some wear and tear decals, were created by myself. A friend of mine, which whom I worked on this project, also provided me with all the text decals picturing for example posters. Overall, I wanted to create the most realistic look I could currently achieve and over the past months I learned a lot.
I put a lot of time into the project and I am relatively satisfied with the result and the fact that it replaced one of my high school exams.
