The Story Space

Visited by approximately two million people each year, St Paul’s Cathedral is a lasting monument to the glory of God and a symbol of the hope, resilience and strength of the City of London and the United Kingdom. The ground-breaking exhibition Oculus: an eye into St Paul’s, opened in July 2010, bringing the building’s 1,400 year history to life.

A second film reveals Wren’s room-sized Great Model, one of the finest architectural models ever created and built by Christopher Wren for King Charles II. The film’s four-metre-high projections take visitors into the interior of the model and reveal its beauty in close-up detail. Oculus is set within a timeline spanning 1,400 years of history and interspersed between the films are timeline sequences in which images and dates float across the screens.
