Project Description

The Solbosch campus is located on the territory of the commune of Ixelles (Area of Brussels-Capital). In the 1920's, the Université libre de Bruxelles started to establish there its principal campus which took the name of "campus du Solbosch".

Before this, the 1910 Exposition Universelle took place on the Solbosch campus and its surroundings. The goal of this project is to recreate a virtual model of the 1910 Expo. The models are made using documents of the time, old postcards for the most part. For the 100th anniversary of the Exposition, people will be able to make a virtual visit in the past, and in the future, study the evolution of the Solbosch.

This project started in 2006. The models are made by students for the course INFO-H-502.
