    As part of Michael Levenson's "Monuments and Dust" project at the Institute
    for Advanced Technology in the Humanities at the University of Virginia,
    Chris Jessee and others have built a complete and fully detailed computer
    model of the Crystal Palace, based on original construction drawings. Most
    recently, Chris has produced new computer-generated animations and still
    images of the exterior and interior of the Crystal Palace. You can find
    all of IATH's Crystal Palace materials at
    http://www.iath.virginia.edu/london/model/. The new animations, and notes
    on their production, are at
    http://www.iath.virginia.edu/london/model/animation.html. The interior
    animation is also on display as part of "World City, 1789-1914" the newest
    and largest permanent exhibition at the Museum of London. Both interior
    and exterior animations will be featured in an upcoming BBC program on the
    Crystal Palace, as well.
