Drew Ford Roundhouse
The ChronoPoints team ventured to La Mesa in March to capture the Penske-Ford Roundhouse prior to its impending demolition. We just learned the demolition of the building is now underway. We are currently working on a detailed Project Page regarding the structure’s history and our laser scanning effort. Until we launch the Roundhouse Project Page, here is a sample laser scan image of the building.
Our March trip to San Diego was very productive. We were able to laser scan the Roundhouse building at Penske-Ford prior to its impending demolition and two additional area structures! While in La Mesa we also captured the exteriors of the JSC Innovation Centre (formerly a Home Savings building with a Millard Sheets Studio mosaic) and the 1908 McKinney House (La Mesa Historical Society).
