Reading Room

“One of the most beautiful scholarly spaces in Australia.”

Project overview

Created for the University of Adelaide’s Barr Smith Library, the virtual tour allows remote visitors to explore this impressive space, and learn additional pop-up information and text detailing its history.

Using combinations of 360-degree photography and photogrammetry, we digitised the Barr Smith Library’s Reading Room. Having digitally archived a room in which generations of students have spent so many hours studying, poring over its extensive collections, this treasure can now be visited and re-visited on standard internet browsers and VR devices.
