The Cathedral in the DiVE: Animating Medieval Architecture



Caroline Bruzelius


In 2007-2008, Duke senior Charles Sparkman created a 3D model of an imaginary French medieval cathedral for a Visual Studies Fellowship. As Sparkman explains in the video below, he began developing the project first in Caroline Bruzelius’ Gothic Cathedrals course. After his model was completed, it was animated with the help of Rachel Brady and presented in the DiVE in the summer of 2008. Projects like Charles Sparkman’s contributed to inspiration for creating the Wired! Lab.
