Our project uses the digital environment to re-create both the structure and the experience of a building that no longer exists: the main railroad station In Rochester between 1914 and 1963. The architect of the train station was Claude Fayette Bragdon, a man notable both for his designs and for his theoretical writings on space. The aim of our project is to use new media to integrate visual images of the station and its component artifacts with text about Bragdon and his ideas, as well as to incorporate memories from individuals who recall using or working in the building.
