Abstract

This paper presents an accurate structural reconstruction in 3D of the Hypostyle Hall at the ancient Egyptian temple complex of Karnak. Numerous reconstructions have already been produced, but they are approximations and seek to show what the Hall might have looked like. Here we seek to obtain a dimensionally accurate reproduction that can provide structural details of the elements that make up the Hall. The data obtained here will subsequently enable a full structural analysis of the Hall to be conducted using suitable calculation methods, as they provide the dimensions of its component elements. That analysis will be based on the dimensions given and the characteristics of the materials.
