Maastricht 1748

By Eric Wetzels

In 1748, the French military made a scale model of the city of Maastricht to plan their strategic military conquest of the fortified city. This maquette today is stored in the French city of Lille but was in 2017 cleaned and assembled on behalf of the Municipality of Maastricht in order to create a 3D digitization version of the maquette. This project utilizes the 3D model as a way to narrate and reveal the histories of Maastricht from Roman times until the present.
