Burg Giebichenstein

A historical visualization of the Upper Giebiechenstein Castle in Halle, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. A collaboration with historians of the city museum in Halle. The visualization shows the castle in the end of its romanesque period after finishing the construction and repair work between 1361 - 1368 under Archbishop Dietrich von Portitz.
From 1382 onwards the Upper Giebiechenstein Castle was the main residence of the archbishops of Magdeburg.

The whole modeling was done in Houdini with several procedural tools, to quickly build various buildings in the same style. Also the cliff detailing was completely procedural. Everything was textured in Substance Painter and rendered in 3dsMax with Corona Renderer.
