Chester and Glasgow Cathedrals
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.
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.
