Virtual Reality Liverpool: RIBA NORTH

This Research and Development project (R&D) is looking to new ways to engage audiences in interactive, immersive technologies, which will allow  people who are interested in the architectural heritage of the city to audio-visually perceive the city in unprecedented ways.

The project is led by Richard and Monika Koeck who are jointly working on an interactive virtual reality (VR) installation that will allow visitors situated in Liverpool and abroad to immerse themselves into a high-resoluton, 360 degree, stereoscopically filmed setting of Liverpool. The project takes inspiration from a documentary film which Monika produced for the opening of RIBA North entitled – Liverpool: Movers, Shakers, Architectural Risk Takers.

This virtual reality (VR) installation will attempt to merge archive material with footage shot recently on at key architectural heritage sites in the city, blending the past and present of Liverpool into a single user experience. The audience of the immersive installation will be given the opportunity to navigate virtually between landmark buildings and architectural sites, spanning from the Anglian Cathedral to the Liver Building on the city’s waterfront. Project completion is expected in June 2018.
