L’Aquila 3D: Inside the Closed City, presentation by Barnaby Gunning
Almost four years have passed since the L’Aquila earthquake of April 6, 2009, and there has been little progress towards the reconstruction of its devastated medieval city center– most of which has been off-limits to the public. British architect Barnaby Gunning has been working on a project to construct a 3D model of the city in its present state. The first stages of the project saw over 400 volunteers taking nearly 60,000 photographs of the city and a further 200 getting trained by Google to use SketchUp. In this presentation, Gunning discusses the L’Aquila 3D project and takes the audience on a virtual tour of the historic city center.
