Workshop : Digitising Religious Architectural Heritage in Ibadan (Photogrammetry)

PHOTO 2023 05 04 14 39 52On Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th of May, IFRA-Nigeria organised an introductory training in photogrammetry and 3D modelling as part of its research project on the religious architectural heritage of Ibadan. The training was provided by Lloyd Martin, an architect and independent researcher, at the Institute for African Studies of the University of Ibadan. Lloyd Martin has conducted extensive research on the philosophy and work of Nigeria architect and artist Demas Nwoko and he is preparing a 3D model on the Dominican Chapel (Ibadan) that will be part of the interactive map released by IFRA late 2023 or early 2024. 

The trainees were first provided a tour of the Dominican Chapel by Father Francis Chiadi who is its custodian. They were later showed how to use photogrammetry to produce a 3D model of an object or a building, a technic they will be able to use in the context of the IFRA’s project but also their own research project. For all the researchers who are interested, IFRA’s Digital Lab will make available laptops and softwares to replicate this process.
