Virtual Restoration of Small-Town Texas Synagogues


In 1998, the Texas Jewish Historical Society underwrote a project by architect Robert P. Davis to use computer-aided design techniques to simulate the visual experience of buildings that might otherwise be lost.  These virtual views are an alternate means of preserving the memory of Jewish heritage in selected temples and synagogues in small Texas towns. The project also included descriptive documentation of the buildings via historical research, field measurement, and photography.
