Anasynthesis - the new home for the previous three online publications incorporates all three websites under one aegis.

Anasynthesis is also the home for 'Delphi' - which features the most accurate reconstruction of the sanctuary of Apollo under the guidance of our scientific advisor. In addition the website features the preliminary reconstruction of Pergamon. New projects from 2022 include the reconstruction of the lighthouse of Alexandria together with the city layout.

Nike is now
- at 'anasynthesis' - with new renders and reconstructions.

The Erechtheion - at 'anasynthesis' with new renders and reconstructions.

The Thymele - at 'anasynthesis' with new renders.

For the past eleven years I have been involved in a series of unique projects featuring
 a particular 'temple' or 'building' from the golden age of Greece (also Alexander
 the Great and Hellenism). The projects are the result of an idea that is as unusual as it is unique. It is the creation
 'outside of academia' of classical Greek masterpieces in architecture -  incorporating
 the published and unpublished research of specialist archaeologists, historians and architects.

As of 2022 all three projects now include additional unique publications on Delphi, Pergamon and most recently the 3D reconstruction of Alexandria at the time of Cleopatra in 50BCE. New 3D digital reconstructions of Delphi in particular have been published in print. Visitors to Anasynthesis - the new online website can proceed to the home page here: LINK

The Erechtheion is the specialist subject of archaeologist
 Dr Alexandra Lesk who not only produced her doctoral
 thesis on this building - but also produced a block by block 
CAD model with mechanical engineer Dr Paul Blomerus.

My reconstruction of the Erechtheion is based on 
his CAD model - but goes much further in modelling 
the Ionic volutes in fine detail.

 Also, the particular friezes that now only exist as fragments.
 It looks at - as well as 'proposes' the design of the 
'Pandroseion' - beside the Erechtheion.

As well as theoretical architectural considerations - 3D gives us plenty of play when thinking about
 'what may have been'. It also means that we can continually adjust the existing model to test 
new structural propositions that we can evaluate for accuracy and probability. The project is 'ongoing' and will be for years to come, as we consider new research into the
 anatomy of this wonderful temple to Athena.

The temple of Athena Nike is the specialist subject
 of archaeologist Peter Schultz. For two years
 Peter and myself have set out to reconstruct
 not only the temple - but the famous parapet that
 surrounded it on the Acropolis.

This project has now set the standards for my 
approach in reconstruction. A detailed overview of the project is featured on the Maxon website as
 well as our own extensive online project: nikeisnow

Of course you cannot model a classical temple out of context. This has resulted in modelling
 the whole of the Acropolis from the period of 5th century Athens. The project has also produced an 8 minute pilot documentary (available online) that look s
at the long lasting influence of Nike and her physical representation in our culture today.
 Nike was adopted and adapted - especially by religion and folklore.

The Thymele at Epiduarus. Our third project is 
a collaboration between historian Dr Bronwen 
Wickkiser (who has contributed articles to the project), 
Peter Schultz (on Thymele archaeology) and finally, 
specialist architectural scientific advice from
 Greek architect: John Svolos in Athens.

This is the 'Thymele' in the sanctuary of Asklepius 
at Epiduarus. It has architectural features
not seen in any other classical Greek building. 
It has taken our combined effort over eighteen 
months for me to model the Thymele - as well
 as the temple of Asklepius and the Abaton - all
 of which occupied the central area of the sanctuary. In particular John Svolos contribution 
to the accuracy of the model has been invaluable. The reconstruction as well as the whole 
historical project is now online.

All projects are available to view online to all students of history, archaeology and architecture
 as well as the public who also have a great interest in classical antiquity. Licences to publish are negotiated on an individual basis for commercial, academic and documentary use.
