This project presents immersive 360° tours of three Chicagoland sacred spaces: First Presbyterian Church of Lake Forest, Pilgrim Baptist Church in Chicago, and Lily Reid Holt Memorial Chapel at Lake Forest College. The tours were created using Kolor's Panotour software, and are viewable on desktop and mobile browsers, as well as in virtual reality with Google Cardboard or other viewers.
