French engineer Emmanuel Durand uses modern technology to recreate in 3D space historic buildings that were destroyed in Russia’s war against Ukraine, writes Le Figaro.
Emmanuel helps a group of architects, engineers and historical construction experts preserve the memory of destroyed historical monuments. Using a camera and scanner to the nearest millimeter, Emmanuel recreates destroyed buildings in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Lviv and Chernihiv.
Durand works on a volunteer basis. He has already scanned the fire department in Kharkiv. He is currently working on the building of the Faculty of Economics of the Karazin Kharkiv National University.
Ukraine appeals to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization to deprive Russia of its status as a UNESCO member state in connection with Russia’s destruction of Ukraine’s cultural heritage.
It will be recalled that in April, 46 UNESCO member states refused to participate in the 45th session of the World Heritage Committee because it is chaired by the Russian Federation. The meeting was scheduled in Kazan, Russia.
