3D Historical Building Information Model Talk - Bryan Clark Green

Richmond architectural historian, Bryan Clark Green, will discuss the use of 3D scanner data for creating an architectural 3D model of the Barboursville Plantation House in its original state [this event is sponsored by a course co-led by Will Rourk, ARH5600]. The Barboursville Mansion was a Thomas Jefferson designed house built ca. 1820s and burned down in 1884. The ruins of the mansion have stood ever since and remain on the property of the Barboursville Vineyard today. In Fall of 2020, ARH 5600 students documented the site of the ruins using 3D laser scanners. The completed data was then given to Bryan Green's team to create an historical interpretation of the house as Jefferson had it designed.  Bryan Clark Green will discuss how his team using the scanner data as the foundation for building a 3D Historical Building Information Model or HBIM.
