QTVR of the interior of Notre Dame de Haut by Le Corbusier

QTVR of the interior of Notre Dame de Haut by Le Corbusier

Perhaps someday I will happen to be in Ronchamp, France with some time on my hands. If this happens I will make a beeline to the Church of Notre Dame du Haut by Le Corbusier. Chances are however, that will not happen anytime soon. Instead I will take advantage of my favorite collection in ArtStor, the QTVR Panoramas of World Architecture from Columbia University. The collection contains 1,400 360 panoramas of some other the greatest sites in the world, from pre-history to the modern era. The panoramas allow views to see details that may not have made the cut for a traditional slide like the view from a building. QTVRS also allow one to experience how the various elements of a space are brought together in a seamless wa.  ArtStor has teamed up with Columbia to create more QTVRs for the collection which as Martha Stewart would say, is a good thing.

To find QTVRs log into ArtStor and enter QTVR in the search box, to find a specific place, refine your search from there.
