In cooperation with Forensic Architecture, a research project of the Faculty of Progressive Architecture and Media Research at Goldsmiths College London, ECCHR has created a 3D digital simulation of the fire at Ali Enterprises. The simulation reconstructs the technical details of the fire safety precautions as well as the circumstances and consequences of the fire.
Forensic Architecture creates i.a. for courts proof data as interactive maps, movies and animations. The aim of the models and installations of FA is to reverse the foresight in identifying and presenting grievances and political contexts so that independent organizations can use them. Recently, FA published a project with Amnesty International about Saydnaya Prison in Syria, where prisoners are systematically tortured. Together with coworkers of the ECCHR, FA reconstructed in 2014 in a computer animation a drone attack in Pakistan.
Forensic Architecture produced a court-martial 3D video simulation of the fire process at Ali Enterprises for the ECCHR and medico international project. The simulation is based on government reports, satellite photos of the factory building and “normal” photos of the building, as well as testimonies that ECCHR has researched and documented in Pakistan. Forensic Architecture also used analyzes by fire experts and architects from Germany and Pakistan for the simulation.
