Reconstructing the past take two: Herengracht 476

The next challenge was to use the Structure Sensor to capture a 17th century house on the 'Gouden Bocht' (Golden Bend) in Amsterdam. This two parcel wide majestic residence of the then Mayor of Amsterdam was the home where the porcelain teacup, we follow was used. The building is now used by the Prins Bernard Cultuurfonds.
The team (Audrey Loef (Architecture), Rosan Foppen (industrial Design), Ingmar Klappe (Architecture) and Senna Meij (Industrial Design) of the Technical University Delft, needed to use all their resourcefulness to get the job done. Despite of the 'promise' the Structure Sensor proved to have extreme difficulties with reflective surfaces, such as windows and glass, high ceilings and strong light/dark contrast.
The result: the beautiful ‘salon’ changed into a more ‘cave-like’ space. Clearly the Structure Sensor wasn’t up to the task of scanning a historical abundantly decorated sitting-room!
