The Abbey Theatre, 1904

January 2011 - April 2011

The project created a digital model of Dublin's original Abbey Theatre as it was on its opening night, 27th December 1904. The new, three-dimensional model is opening up fresh ways of exploring the stories and histories of the early years of Ireland's National Theatre. The project has implemented the principles of the London Charter by recording, on its website each step of the research and modelling process. The project was created by KVL Associate Director, Dr Hugh Denard, while on sabbatical study leave in Dublin in collaboration with local digital graphics company, Noho.

This project has been funded by the Visiting Research Fellowship scheme of the Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin.
