Project Status: Complete
From the creators: As a monument to medieval kingship and a setting for parliamentary government, St Stephen’s Chapel in the Palace of Westminster has helped to shape the political culture of the nation. Funded by the AHRC (2013-17), our project explores the history, art and architecture of the royal chapel which became the first dedicated House of Commons. This website provides access to the 3D visualizations modeled from our research.
The St. Stephen’s Chapel project provides a number of visualizations of what the building and its environs may have looked like in several periods, including the 14th century and the 16th century. Beyond the interior and exterior visualizations, the project also offers sections that detail what the experience of worship may have been like during these periods.
