Design Research, 2018

Visitors will soon be able to experience iconic Liverpool landmarks – including one that was never built – like never before thanks to pioneering new digital experiences.

The University of Liverpool’s Professor Richard Koeck and colleagues at the Centre of Architecture and the Visual Arts (CAVA), have collaborated with organisations including Culture LiverpoolDraw and CodeDimension StudioImmersive Story Lab and RIBA North on research and development of mixed reality (MR), virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) projects. 

"We wanted to find new ways to engage audiences in interactive, immersive technologies, which will allow people who are interested in the architecture of the city to audio-visually perceive the city in unprecedented ways," Professor Koeck said.

The research is part of a broad scope of work at the University which harnesses the digital revolution and also draws upon our heritage to meet the challenges of today.
