“ARKIKUS - Santa Catalina de Badaia Monastery: a virtual reconstruction” is a mobile application aimed at public use and created by Arkikus under the support of the Iruña de Oca Town Council.
The virtual reconstruction included in this app aims to show the architectural evolution of the Santa Catalina de Badaia monastery (Basque Country, Spain) over history, with the main focus on 14th and 16th centuries AD.
All the digital contents included in the application have been developed based on the archaeological and written documentation currently available for the site. If information was not available for certain objects, period specific architecture and ornaments from neighbouring regions were used as a guide in efforts to maintain historical accuracy. These reconstructions provide an interpretation of the site based on the guidelines of the project’s advisory panel’s. It is anticipated that new investigations by future studies may further refine these interpretations.
