Singleton Abbey Architectural History

As part of the University’s Centenary Celebration ISS proposes the creation of a web -based virtual architectural ‘experience’ focussing on the history of Singleton Abbey and its many phases of construction through the ages. At its core will be computer models (renders) of the exterior of the Abbey, created by Steve Littlejohns using the Open Source ‘Blender’ software. With the assistance of the Richard Burton Archives, the West Glamorgan Archive Service, plus a sizeable chunk of his own personal time devoted to researching the history of the abbey using primary and secondary sources, Steve has already created some exciting views of the Abbey in 2D and 3D.
