»10.31.06 - In collaboration with the BC Museum of Mining, the British Columbia Institute of Technology, the University of BC and the Mineral Resources Education Program of BC, Zero One Design the latest Virtual Museum of Canada project The Mill at The Mill at Britannia Mine: Beauty in the Beast has launched. This year-long project explores the Concentrator and the community that worked within it. The Concentrator, a National Historic Site and British Columbia Provincial Landmark, is one of the most imposing structures on the Sea to Sky Highway and its size and magnitude is matched only by its historical importance. Highly innovative at the time of its construction in 1922, the Concentrator, Mill #3, was key to Britannia Mines being one of the largest copper producing mines in the British Commonwealth throughout the 1920s and a major mine into the 1970s. The site uses interview material from experts and community members, archival video and images, a fully immersible 3D tour, Quicktime VR, an interactive flow chart and original blueprints to tell the story of the building.
