L.V. Rogers students travel in time to Nelson in 1935

Their design could now be used to create a physical model of the building or an interactive tour online.

L.V. Rogers secondary school Grade 12 drafting students (back, L-R) Lachlan Rocher, Gabe Carpendale, Drew Cushway, Josiah Schmunk, and (front) Geoff Daloise show a view of the Civic Centre arena, which is part of a 3D rendering they created of the entire building. Using old blueprints from 1935 provided by the City of Nelson and their own observations from touring the building earlier in the year, the group essentially drew the whole building by hand using the computer program AutoCad. Their design could now be used to create a physical model of the building or an interactive tour online. LVR drafting teacher Chris Dergousoff is in discussions with the sports museum within the Civic Centre to decide how best to display his students’ work.
