Dear All,

ICT Guides is a service offered by the Arts and
Humanities Data Service (AHDS) at King's College,
London. It seeks to promote the use of ICTs in
research and learning through cataloging
good-practice digital arts and humanities
projects along with the tools and methods they employed.

A number of new projects have been added to ICT

3D Reconstruction of the Unbuilt Project Pont
destiné à réunir la France à l’Italie (1829) by Henri Labrouste

" Henri Labrouste (1801-75) is best known as the
architect of two important public buildings in
Paris, both libraries. The Bibliothèque
Sainte-Geneviève, completed in 1851, demonstrated
Labrouste's unconventional use of classical
elements, much disputed at the time, and his
structural innovation of introducing an exposed
iron frame. The Bibliothèque Nationale, completed
in the year of his death, is renowned for its
eclectic reading room reminiscent of a Seljuk
mosque: a light, top-lit round space with slender
cast-iron columns, which support a multitude of
small domes. Both these buildings are
representative of the so-called Beaux-Arts style
that flourished at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in
Paris of which Labrouste was a student. ". " See:

Suggestions for new projects most welcome.

Kind Regards,

Craig Bellamy
