Scanning of the Shrine!

CHICAGO, IL – Today, a company called DLZ set up digital scanning equipment and scanned the interior of the Shrine. This scanning process creates a digital image of the interior that will be modeled and then that model can be used to recreate the plaster moldings and reliefs.

The existing plaster details are damaged beyond salvage due to being exposed to the elements. This scanning process is capturing the image of the details so that they can be recreated later in the design process.
