Summary

In this three-part film, Jean-Claude Golvin, architect-archaeologist, explains his representation methods of ancient sites and monuments.

In the first part, we follow, without comments, the architectural representation of the emperor's Tiberius villa Jovis in Capri, from the very beginning: the first outlining of the borders of the building with pencil and later the painting of the villa on aquarelle.

in the second part, Jean-Claude Golvin gives a description of this architectural representation, as closely to reality as possible and based on a synthesis of architectural, archaeological and historical information.

Finally, in the third part, he presents his techniques that help him create the architecture design images of the archaeological site: from sketches and cross-sections, he creates 3-D images, full in harmony, aesthetic quality and faithful to reality.
