XORXOR was commissioned to virtually reconstruct a Romanesque abbey found near Bugac, Hungary. In the simulation one can choose from 3 different views by selecting one of the physical cubes.
Based on so little data from the excavation a handsome of other 12nd century monasteries from the region was used as reference for the interior and the cloister – the main model of the bounding walls was given.
The church was presumably a simple one with three bays built from white limestone with all of the general characteristics of the churches of the era: massive quality, thick walls, small openings, round arches, sturdy piers, groin vaults, large towers and decorative arcading.
The inner space was surrounded by round arched arcades and the living-quarters. A small carved drinking-well also beautifies the center.
Typical romanesque groin vaults, basilical lighting and a high apse with a fresco are all features of the interior.
