Saint Joseph’s University – Frances M. Maguire Art Museum, 3D Laser Scanning

Saint Joseph’s University and the Barnes Foundation launched an education partnership in 2018 to expand opportunities for students and the community related to horticulture and the arts. Through this partnership, the university added 12 acres—now known as the Barnes Arboretum—to its campus including the former foundation building, which is being renovated into the Frances M. Maguire Art Museum. Langan prepared a site-wide boundary and topographic survey to gather information about existing conditions, which was then used as the base mapping for the renovation design. We also conducted 3D laser scanning of the building’s interior and exterior and helped design an accessible walkway to the museum while preserving valuable arboretum collections.
