Chester and Glasgow Cathedrals

A dark haired woman is seated before a tactile plan of Chester Cathedral which is situated in the ancient stone undercroft of the Cathedral. She is exploring the plan with both her hands. Above the plan is a three dimensional model of Chester Cathedral. A blonde woman stands alongside pointing a microphone at the seated woman, asking for her impressions of the plan.

Chester Cathedral Interactive Tactile Model

This project involved the creation of a computer-based plan of the cathedral from which to design the form of the two and three dimensional models. These were then transposed by the model-makers into CAD files which were used to cut the models' form from limewood using lasers. A binaural sound commentary, specially recorded in the correct position, describes the building and the acoustic spaces of the cathedral.

A bearded white-haired man with glasses smiles at a young girl with black hair who is wearing headphones. She is listening to the commentary about Glasgow Cathedral as she explores the three dimensional tactile model with both hands. To the left is a woman also listening to the commentary. They are standing in the stone built nave of Glasgow Cathedral and there is a brass memorial plaque in the background.

Glasgow Cathedral Precinct Interactive Tactile Model

The scale model of this Glasgow Cathedral and Precinct is located within the cathedral itself. The sound is transmitted to the headsets from an infra-red transmitter so that visitors can walk around the large model without being hindered by cables.
