PHILADELPHIA, PA – NOVEMBER 2016 – Professional 3D Scanning Services at Thomas Jefferson University

We feel excited to support the great vision of MEDstudio at JEFF and Jenny Sabin Studio, who lead the architectural design of The Beacon - "Where Design and Technology meet Medicine to Empower People”; an experiment in generative architecture and functions to stimulate new ideas between medicine and design. The exhibit that was created in Lubert Plaza, Philadelphia, as a part of Design Philadelphia 2016 Festival. 
It is through a shared passion for rendering the physical world digitally accessible to anyone with internet access that has united the two parties: engineers and designers. 
"The project was created to function as both a public meeting place for the design expo, and as an experiment to demonstrate drone technology, responsive textiles and advanced digital fabrication’s contribution to architecture, design and the medical field".

Rodriguez Team used FARO Focus  X330 Laser scanner and created 360 panoramic imagery in Faro Webshare as well as an scanned model of the 20-foot tall structure.
