Proceso constructivo en 3D de la torre de Santa María

Based on the studies carried out by Jaime Carbonel Monquilan about methods of construction and building techniques of the Tower of Santa Maria in Tauste (Zaragoza, Spain) in the eleventh century.

 

A team of enthusiasts keen on Zagri- and Mudejar-style architecture has been working on this project for several years and even went to Iran searching for answers.

We can now appreciate its results in a virtual 3D recreation of the construction of the Tower of Santa Maria. It made it possible to discover previously unknown and surprising aspects regarding its construction. Upon numerous visits and comprehensive measurements using latest methods we could reveal how 11th century master builders tackled the issues they were forced to face.

Jose Miguel Pinilla, Javier Peña, Pilar Palacio and Jaime Carbonel are members of the team of architects who have worked on the 3D project along with a 3D modelling expert Raul Navas and made this remarkable reconstruction possible.
