The Lost Palace, opening in July 2016, will allow people to experience the extraordinary history of Whitehall Palace – 300 years after it burnt to the ground. It will take visitors around Whitehall’s modern streets and bring its history to life using new immersive technologies.

This honest, work in progress talk will focus on the three most challenging aspects of the project. Working in new ways – finding different types of collaborators through open call competitions and the testing of prototypes; Working in challenging new places – Whitehall is now the seat of British Government, possibly the most security sensitive area of the UK; And using technology to stimulate the senses and create emotional connections with the past.
