See State Library Victoria, our landmark building, like you’ve never seen it before as Ruth Wilson and Simon Farr from Architectus, who led the recent Vision 2020 refurbishment, take you on a virtual tour of The Ian Potter Queen's Hall from inside the iconic patterned skylight roof.

From this unique perspective, Ruth and Simon will share some of the fascinating behind-the-scenes stories about the refurbishment of this 19th century interior, including their approach to reworking spaces so steeped in history and the painstaking process of restoring its original details.

The video will be available at 11am on Saturday 25 July until 31 August to view, just click on the YouTube play icon on the image above!
