The project for my master's thesis is a VR 3D simulation of the castle "Oberkapfenberg" (Austria), in its original state during the Renaissance. I wanted to bring back the feeling and experience to visitors of that castle, to make them understand, how. To give the thesis book an old and modern appearance, it was bound with the wood from a tree, that originated from the forest, where the castle stands. A slipcase was built with the same wood and an engraving of the logo and background, that represents the immersion in VR. A hologram of the 3D castle was made and embedded in the front cover.
