Beyond 2022 – VR Reconstruction

About

In December 2016, Noho were commissioned by Trinity College Dublin and the Beyond 2022 project to produce a project website, brand identity, two promotional videos and a detailed digital reconstruction of an iconic Irish building, The Public Record Office of Ireland at the Four Courts.

Destroyed by a massive re in 1922, Noho nonetheless created a digital model of the six-storey brick building from a series of old plans, elevations, cross-sections and two photographs of the interior. In order to experience the full sense of scale of this extensive building, Noho also created a Virtual Reality version of the model, which allows users to roam through a vast space and retrieve a document from one of the shelves on the first floor.

The work was launched by the British Ambassador in the magnificent House of Lords Chamber in the Bank of Ireland in early Spring, 2018. The project received a lot of publicity – Irish Times, Digital Eire, TechCentral and Klemens has written a blog about his reconstruction.
