Professor Gaurav Sharma works with Art History Professor, Peter Christensen, on converting scans of buildings into highly detailed 3D models.

Gaurav Sharma, professor of electrical and computer engineering, worked with Peter Christensen, assistant professor of art history, on converting scans of buildings into highly detailed 3D models. Christensen analyzed the ways that standard German architectural designs for the train stations along the Ottoman Railway in Turkey were subtly altered by the local workers who actually constructed the buildings, reflecting the different environmental conditions and cultural aesthetics of their own communities. The video embedded in this article describes the contribution of Gaurav’s lab.
