Disciplinary fields: Architecture, Urbanism, Applied Mathematics, Acoustics, Archaeology, Classics, Philology, Art History, History
Summary: The only antique theatre in the Western Mediterranean to preserve a stage building in an exceptional state, the Orange building is listed as an UNESCO World Architectural Heritage Site. Since 2016, it is the subject of a restoration campaign that will continue until 2023. The building is completely scaffolded. This is an exceptional opportunity to study the building, in order to understand the construction and architecture of the monument as well as the uses and the transformations that have affected it up to now. The Conservation of the Orange Museum is also preparing the programming of a future museum in which the space dedicated to the Orange theatre will be centred
The TAIC project is part of an integrated management approach for scientific and heritage components and cultural uses. With its recognized expertise in both antique architecture and digital humanities, the IRAA proposes to articulate, for the first time in France, these different components around the modeling of data relating to the antique theater. While relying on experiments developed on a smaller scale in previous projects (ANR Orag project, ATRI Over the cloud, Numéro and Sonat project), the methodology of interdisciplinary work around new digital objects implemented in TAIC will, for the first time, provide a global understanding of all the scientific issues, heritage and societal aspects of a great antique monument.
