Immersive technologies are increasingly being explored in museum settings. The research project The Forest in the House (2018) was an intervention-based research project about construction and use of virtual reality in architectural exhibitions, realized as collaboration between University of Oslo (UiO), the National Museum, Notam and Atelier Oslo architects. Physically, the project consisted of a full-scale, multi-level model where the visitors could walk, and they would be able to switch between two virtual environments experienced through VR-goggles, headset and loudspeakers. Two dynamic soundscapes were constructed to fit with the visual models, and novel combinations of sound diffusion models were
employed. Visitor reactions recorded on video, in questionnaires and in post-exit structured interviews were the basis for the project’s findings.
