The Google and Versailles teams have worked together for the past year on the Palace History Gallery opening, developing digital assets to make this visit interactive and educational.
Discover the history of the Palace through 3D models in Google Earth plus educational videos, interactive games for kids, and a beautiful Chrome Experiment "Chaos to Perfection" with soundtrack by Phoenix.
Learn about the palace and the history of its construction with four scale models built in 3D. Each model includes commentaries and links to historical data which allow users to understand how they were built.
We used the 3D models to build an innovative Chrome Experiment named Chaos to Perfection. This allows users to wander around iconic parts of the palace, accompanied by an original soundtrack from the French band, Phoenix.
This project pushed the boundaries of 3D modelling in Google Earth and WebGL. Google worked closely with our partners Aloest, Westimages, le FabShop and Les 84.
