Bernard Maybeck Laser Scan Building

Laser Scanning Bernard Maybeck buildings on Principia College campus in Elsah, IL

Occasionally, we get to escape the baggage systems, airport terminal renovations, and heavy MEP scanning to do something different. In July, we were tasked with scanning seven Bernard Maybeck designed structures at Principia College in Elsah, Illinois. Principia sits atop a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River to the West and is a visually stunning campus. Maybeck, a noted San Francisco Bay area architect whose works include over 150 buildings in California including The Palace of Fine Arts and Swedenborgian Church in San Francisco. These designs at Principia are one of the only works done by Maybeck outside of California and were designed during The Great Depression. In 1993, the college was designated a National Historic Landmark in recognition of Maybeck’s work.
