This virtual reality (VR) exhibition will take you on a journey through time from Renaissance to postmodernism. Drawing on our world-class collections, Space Popular uses virtual reality to examine styles of the past and to consider the technology’s impact on contemporary spaces and buildings. Historic artefacts are displayed alongside newly commissioned content, inviting you to enter a captivating virtual universe and experience how popular cultures and technologies impact architecture and its style evolution.
