Timegate to the Roman city of Nijmegen: creating a Sense of time and place

« back

Nijmegen is the oldest city in the Netherlands, yet the vestiges of its Roman past have all but disappeared. Fortunately, during the construction of an apartment block on St. Josephhof, the foundations of the oldest house in the Netherlands were laid bare. Thanks to a ‘virtual elevator’ that went into operation in February 2011, visitors can now see first-hand how the house was constructed 2000 years ago and how it was later destroyed by fire in 70 A.D.

Van het Romeinse verleden van Nijmegen is weinig meer zichtbaar. Op verzoek van de afdeling stadsontwikkeling heeft Office for Imagination de bouw van het oudste huis van Nederland ‘bloot’ gelegd. Door gebruik van communicatiemiddelen anno 2010 is aan de Walstraat de bouw en verwoesting van dit huis zichtbaar gemaakt.
