Notre-Dame de Paris exhibition in Singapore includes VR tour of landmark
The VR tour will allow viewers to explore the landmark, including areas previously inaccessible to the public.
Alliance Française de Singapour will host an exhibition which focuses on the construction of Notre-Dame de Paris and its successive restorations from Apr 16 to Jun 15.
The exhibition, titled (Re)births, will be held on the second floor of the gallery.
The gothic structure had been an emblematic monument of Paris and France for almost nine centuries, until it was ravaged by a fire on Apr 15, 2019.
The exhibition also includes a Virtual Reality (VR) tour of the monument. The VR experience was created by Ubisoft for its Assassin’s Creed: Unity game, with 5,000 hours of graphic work put in, guided by historians.
The VR tour provides an opportunity for viewers to explore Notre-Dame de Paris from different angles, even featuring areas which were inaccessible to the public such as its roof and the flying buttresses.
Additionally, visitors can immerse themselves in the steep history of the architectural masterpiece through models and images.
While entry is free, visitors can register for tickets to achieve optimal viewing time. Ticket holders will be given priority for the VR experience.
