Heritage areas

'3D laser scanning as a form of representation' at the ‘SEE-ING’ Exhibition. UNCC, USA. by Bernadette Devilat

Bernadette presented a contribution titled: ‘3D laser scanning as a form of representation’ at the ‘SEE-ING: The Environmental Consciousness Project’ Exhibition from the 15th October to the 16th November 2018. The exhibition was located at the Storrs Gallery UNCC, Charlotte, USA. The work consisted on one image and a video in which she explored the representational aspects of 3D laser scanning using previous data from her PhD research of the historical area of Zúñiga, Chile in 2013.

Paper presentation at the SEAHA International Conference in London, UK by Bernadette Devilat

Bernadette presented a paper titled: ‘Tracing back architectural spaces using the 3D laser scanning of ruins’ at the 4th International 4th International Conference on Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology (SEAHA) in London last 4th of June 2018. The paper covered aspects that she researched in her PhD around the role of accurate recording technologies to study the changes of architectural spaces through time.

Next presentation of Bernadette's research on the 20th November 2015 by Bernadette Devilat

All welcome to the presentation I will give next 20th Of November titled:  'Re-construction and record: exploring alternatives for heritage areas after earthquakes in Chile'. It will be held at Room S16 of Institute of Education (IOE), 20 Bedford Way, London WC1H 0AL, from 3.00 to 5.00 pm. I will refer to my thesis research and also to the exhibition on Gordon St.

Abstract of the presentation: Earthquakes have progressively destroyed Chile’s built heritage over the years, but also applied reconstruction approaches during the aftermath. From the study of the 2005 and the 2010 earthquakes, the objective is to explore alternatives to address re-construction in heritage villages, based on a methodical record of case studies throughout different periods of time. By using accurate recording technologies, such as 3D laser scanning, the role that the record may have in the definition of what is considered heritage and in the design of re-construction projects is being explored; understanding those technologies’ capacity of being a virtual database for memory, preservation, demolition, intervention or replica.

Date: Friday 20th of November 2015

Time: 3.00 to 5.00 pm.
