Professor Shantel Blakely (Sam Fox School) will discuss the use of photogrammetry in the study and teaching of architecture. Capturing and using photos of large-scale buildings to produce 3D models is a valuable technique to document existing structures and to create instructional materials. Blakely will explore the adoption of this technique for an introductory architecture course and for a field study in Italy this summer. She was awarded a Teaching Development Grant from the Sam Fox School to support the creation of a prototype in collaboration with the Fossett Lab in the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department.
Free and open to all, pre-registration required.

Shantel Blakely is an Assistant Professor in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts with strong interests in architecture and philosophy. Through a scholarly engagement with architecture, she has sought to understand and explain forms of monumentality and configuration that have motivated architects since antiquity and also to bring to light other aesthetic values that might be traces of transient cultural moments or architects’ responses to imperatives from outside the discipline. Blakely has previously taught at Columbia University, Barnard College, and Parsons School of Design, and worked at Roger Hirsch Architects and Maryann Thompson Architects. She was a public programs manager for five years at Harvard Graduate School of Design.
