Project Background

Dr. Maria Delgado’s research initiative developed the page to intersect technology and architectural history to educate the public. Dr. Delgado’s 2021 research team is comprised of two research interns. CSU’s Extension Office and the COVID-19 Teaching & Research Student Employment Initiative funded the research internship positions. Under Dr. Delgado’s direction, the research interns engaged in (a) field data documentation by photographing the 3D buildings in their respective locations, (b) research and collection of historical data on the individual buildings, and (c) the embedding of data into Matterport live virtual tours to curate an educational experience.
