I know I keep opening new threads, my aim is creating a sort of Encyclopaedia of Medieval and Roman architecture. I will post in this thread the various buildings I model - some for an Archaeology project I am following - and others just for personal interest and research. Since today I had to prepare a presentation on Roman Tabernas (rooms which had mainly a commercial use - located on the ground floor of houses and public buildings) for my Archaeology class at uni, I decided to make one with Blender. The building will then appear in a project I am following in which, with a group of Italian archaeologists, we are rendering an entire Roman town in northern Italy. Since a book and dvd will be published next year I can’t post any renders of the project, though I can post some of the buildings made by very self.
Here’s a ‘Taberna Unguentaria’ essentially a shop which retailed ointments and medicines. The overhanging floor above the taberna could either be the shopkeeper’s house or a storehouse for the goods - since the shop would be part of a bigger building.
