Versailles, the largest Palace in Europe, is in the center of a beautiful, entertaining and educational online 3D project called Chaos To Perfection.
The interactive online project has been created by the French Agency Les84, in collaboration with the teams at the Google Cultural Institute and the Versailles Palace. An experience that is truly immersive, poetic and dreamlike. You can discover the history of the Palace through 3D models in Google Earth, in educational videos or you can enjoy an interactive stroll around the palace in a Chrome Browser Experiment Chaos to Perfection.
