iC-ACCESS (Accessing Campscapes: Inclusive Strategies for Using European Conflicted Heritage, HERA 15.092) looks at former concentration camps as traces and intangible reminders of the 20th century mass violence and terror as well as at their present uses, and abuses, in (trans)national stately and cultural contexts.

Given the intentions of the iC-ACCESS project to explore tools for inclusive strategies to present such heritage, the structure has been an important focal point for developing a digital application that can provide a space for contending perspectives on the commander’s house and related historical narratives. In order to realize such an application iC-ACCESS project leader Prof. dr. R. van der Laarse contracted two laboratories specialized consecutively in 3D visualisation technologies and spatial information to cooperate on its development, the 4D Research Lab (University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands) and the SPINlab (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam The Netherlands).
