Fort Scott Field Collection 3-16-07

mail.jpgThis week the CyArk Visualization Interns will travel to San Francisco’s Presidio to document Fort Winfield Scott. The fort was originally constructed between 1910 and 1915 and served as headquarters for all seacoast defenses at the Presidio. The fort is significant because of it serves as an example of the military’s involvement in seacoast defense and the structures represent one of the finest examples of the Mission Revival Style. The horseshoe building arrangement and use of the natural topography also evidence change in 20th century planning concepts by the integration of setting, architecture and landscape.

The internship students, along with professionals from the Presidio Trust, CyArk, CHI and SVLS will preform a High Definition Documentation of one of the barracks of the fort. The majority of the work will take place between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm on Friday March 16th.

  1. This is the same Fort Winfield Scott that will be the subject of study by the students of Anthropology 136e in May 21-June 29, 2007 as part of the UC Berkeley Summer Session. Students will follow up and work in tandem with the CYARK interns to produce a sute management plan for Fort Winfield Scott
