Description

Purdue's campus landscape continues to change with the construction of new buildings and the remodel of old buildings. In 2012 the Engineering Administration Building (ENAD) and the iconic Heat and Power Plant-North (HPN) were targeted for demolition to make way for the construction of the Active Learning Center (ALC); a building with offices, collaborative spaces and classrooms with an emphasis on new instructional models. The Purdue University Lyles School of Civil Engineering capitalized on a key opportunity for education and research. Five cameras were installed to capture images from the demolition of the Engineering Administration Building and the Power Plant, to the construction of the Active Learning Center. The images from 3 fixed cameras situated on the Mathematical Sciences Building (MATH) and the Potter (A. A.) Engineering Center (POTR) can be accessed and used for educational and research purposes.

Representative time lapse videos were created from these three cameras for each month of the project. The time lapse videos created from these images - 08:00 to 18:00, 7 days a week in each month - are accessible here: http://dx.doi.org/10.4231/R70P0WXD.
