Reality Capture: Palace of Fine Arts
Autodesk + Exploratorium, San Francisco
With Autodesk's Brian Mathews, we captured a precise three-dimensional model (point cloud) of the Exploratorium in its original home and Autodesk demonstrated bleeding-edge photogrammetry + LIDAR fusion capabilities. The NY Times and ABC TV picked up the story. A generous $1.2M Autodesk corporate sponsorship of the Exploratorium was established one month later.
Clock ticking, days before the museum's move to Pier 15, we pulled an all-nighter to complete 3D laser scans and hundreds of HDR photographs.
