Chronicles of a House: The Papenhof

Experiencing the history of a building through Virtual Reality

“Chronicles of a House: The Papenhof” is a virtual reality interactive archaeological reconstruction of a medieval building. The users can immerse into a time travel simulation that starts from the present world and tells the history of the house in a five-minute experience with simple interactions, voice-over, environmental sounds and a concise plot. The installation is Sandro Lochau’s Bachelor Diploma project and was exhibited at the Design degree show at Zurich University of the Arts, 2016.
