John Hemsworth and colleagues at Mcfarland Marceau Architects took their working Google Sketchup model of the new Field Station building and did up a virtual tour which we had running at our oyster bar at the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance Summit this week. Thanks to VIU Communications who converted it and put it up on Youtube for everyone else to enjoy.
The photos around the model show the actual views and location of the new building in relation to the site and Baynes Sound. After viewing the building from the water, you spin around and enter through the front door, through the public areas, down to the lab viewing mezzanine levels and then down to the research level. Hopefully on the next iteration, we will have more of the landscaping in as this one doesn’t show any of the trees on site
