Description

Modelling Medieval Vaults symposium at the University of Liverpool in London, 14 July 2016.

Keynote speakers:

Professor Norbert Nussbaum – University of Cologne

Professor Santiago Huerta – Technical University of Madrid

Professor Benjamin Ibarra-Sevilla – University of Texas at Austin

The use of digital surveying and analysis techniques, such as laser scanning, photogrammetry, 3D reconstructions or reverse engineering offers the opportunity to re-examine historic works of architecture.

The use of digital tools in the context of medieval architecture has enabled new research into three-dimensional design processes, construction methods, structural engineering, building archaeology and relationships between buildings. Recent research on Continental European and Central American architecture has established the significance of these techniques, however, as yet there has been little exploitation of digital technologies in the context of medieval architecture in the British Isles. This is despite international recognition of the importance of thirteenth and fourteenth-century English vault design to the history of Gothic architecture in an international context.

The aims of the present symposium are to present new research in this emerging field in order to establish appropriate methodologies using digital tools and identify significant questions for future research in the area.

The symposium will be applicable to anyone with an interest in:

- Medieval architecture

- Three-dimensional digital methodologies

- Digital techniques used for the analysis of historic works of architecture
