Visualizing Angkor

A brief addition to your article on "Visualizing Angkor" (Post, June 16,

2006): Tom Chandler recently visited Cambodia to present an exhibition of the Cambodian

component of the project mentioned in the article.

It involved six students from the Royal University of Fine Arts in a short course

on historical 3D modeling. Using a curriculum provided by Mr Chandler, Architectural

Adviser Hok Sokol and Computer Teacher Pou Sopheak aided the students in developing

a model of an Angkorean-era wooden house.

Our efforts in "Digital Heritage" continue, and we look forward to sharing

further glimpses of Cambodia's history with the Post and the public in the near future.
