This is a movie I did of the Nott Memorial located at Union College in Schenectady, NY. My goal is to recreate the structure as it appeared in the late 19th century. Since the Nott was heavily renovated in the late 20th century, the interior of my model does not exactly match what is there today, but it is close.
I modeled the structure in 3ds max, and with a fairly nice digital camera, I went around the Nott taking snap shots of it's various features. I then cropped and heavily modified the pictures that I took to make the texture maps that would map the final model. Also, you may notice the structure has a fairly ridged look to it, that was because I originally modeled the geometry with a low enough polygon count so that I could use it in an interactive environment, such as a game, however, I have not decided on a platform for that task.
