Kala Goyal: “VR tours of St Paul’s Basilica”

The DEV Studio has been working on creating a VR reconstruction of St Paul’s Basilica, a historic cathedral that burned down in the 1800s. Users can move through time to see how the building changed, can interact with different parts of the building, take (and eventually create) virtual tours, and can explore the complex. I have worked on a variety of things for this project, from some modeling to UI/UX to Immersivity considerations to code architecture, and will give a brief overview of how all those facets of an experience change in the context of an XR app.
