Chad Keller

Chad Keller is captivated by how integrating new digital technology into the research and documentation of cultural heritage sites can deliver new insight into centuries-old designs. Using such digital tools as 3-D scanning and 3-D modeling, he has recreated sites from ancient Rome to colonial Williamsburg to Old Sheldon Church in nearby South Carolina. He also documented the reconstruction of prominent sculptures from the Vatican Museum, and his work on these and other notable projects has led him to present his findings as conferences around the globe. His courses at SCAD give students first-hand experience using similar tools in the field. Honored with an Award of Excellence from the American Society of Architectural Illustrators in 2008, Keller joined the faculty at SCAD in 2011. He worked previously as a multi-media designer and adjunct professor of architectural history at the University of Virginia. He holds an M.F.A. in historic preservation from SCAD and a B.A. in historic geography from Pennsylvania State University.
