In August there was a big explosion in the port of Beirut, which caused a lot of damage, unfortunately many people died. Forensic Architecture, a research group from London, has now reconstructed the course of events using publicly available information such as videos and photos. Especially the video on the website about the reconstruction is very interesting.

I don’t know much about 3D modelling or forensic work, but it is quite impressive to me how the video recordings were used to localize the exploded materials. Maybe the findings can help to learn from this misfortune.
