Videos of the Chateau de Richelieu

NAUTILUS have produced short videos of the now-demolished Château of Cardinal Richelieu from their huge computer model. You may find these videos on DAILY MOTION by clicking on the three links, 5-, 6-, and 7- in the INTERESTING LINKS panel to your left.
The three videos show different stages of the development of the computer modelling of the Château. NAUTILUS started wth the building itself, then the gardens and most recently the interior.

A quick translation of NAUTILUS' comments:

"This innovative virtual computer model is the only one in Europe to reconstitute completely and in real-time the outside and now even the inside of a building, in this particualr case the Cardinal's disappeared château - it will be equally interesting to either the scientist or the architectural student. This reconstruction has been validated by eminent conservation historians by creating it from the extensive contemporary historical records. Of technical interest is the manipulation of the huge computer files required and their final projection in stereoscope - it is fascinating to both for the student and the tourist. The computer model is already being projected in front of the public, and forms part of the established tourist's tour of the town and park at the IDEAL TOWN of Richelieu in Indre-et-Loire."
