The Old Lodge unlayered & the roof revealed

5/6/2018

Old Hall at Corpus Christi College is the earliest example of a college lodge and hall in the city. Now that much of the 20th century fabric has been stripped away, a digital reconstruction of the interior has been constructed using laser scanning technology. Some 350 million points of interest were captured, rendered and assembled to give a three-dimensional view. The study provides a valuable record of the medieval structure as well as later additions. The process was undertaken over 4 days by engineering PhD student, Dan Brackenbury, and supervised by Dr Keith Seffen. Commentary on the videos is by Peter Carolin.
