Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lalibela is Africa’s largest Christian site. It is characterized by the presence of eleven churches cut in the rock. The innovation and experimentation required to build these churches make Lalibela a must-see in Ethiopia.
The objective of the Lalibela project is to promote Ethiopian heritage through a traveling exhibition which will begin in 2022 in Lalibela, Addis Ababa and Paris. The mixed reality experience immerses the visitor in the heart of the site while highlighting the historical, religious and aesthetic richness of the place.
Preserving the heritage
With Lalibela, HoloForge offers an exhibition rich in scientific and technological content that is part of an innovation process taking into account the complexities, logistical, security and rationalization issues linked to the exhibition of such a place.
In addition, given the geographical location of the site (erosion due to torrential rains), it is difficult to predict what will happen to the site. The preservation of this heritage therefore becomes a pressing issue.
