This workshop offers a behind-the-scenes look at how researchers from UQ School of Architecture have created a BIM (Building Information Model) of the Old Windmill Tower using 3D laser scanning and historical research.

Researchers will present their processes and decision making and what evidence they used to create a virtual reality experience of the Old Windmill Tower as it existed in the 1840s – then open discussions on further possibilities to improve the model which we will test out live in the workshop.

All architectural historians, history buffs and windmill nerds, are welcome to come and speculate on where their evidence or ideas may contribute to making future BIM models of this project more accurate, and test them out live in the workshop on the computer models that we will have on hand.

Members of the public are welcome to participate as observers, and ask questions of the panel on their methods and how VR will be used into the future on heritage projects.
