The first example of 3D modelling and reconstruction consists of two buildings in the open area between the Villa and the so called village of Ayia Triada. One of the most important Minoan sites, Ayia Triada has been studied for many years by the Centre of Cretan Archaeology in cooperation with the Italian Archaeological School of Athens.
Recent excavations have provided new evidence for the interpretation of the crucial transitional area between the settlement and the noble quarter whose function and articulation was not previously well known.
A complete analysis of the Minoan architecture through the study of frescoes and stone vases with relief decoration has suggested that the principal features of the two most important buildings were the propylon and the stoa.
