BPL has created a new venture that takes people on a tour inside and out of the iconic branch, thanks to drones. Meghan Weeks is a curator at BPL and said that after watching the footage, she felt like a bird for the first time in her life.
“To see it from this angle is truly extraordinary,” Weeks said. “It’s a much more sweeping view and experience and we’re excited to be seeing it for the first time with a number of other viewers and the public.”
BPL partnered with a Somerville-based production company called Above Summit to create the video and they just released a teaser video. Jovan Tanasijevic is the co-founder of Above Summit and said the project is meant to revitalize the library and bring more awareness to its architecture.
“It’s such a rich architectural city,” he said. “Go and explore the beautiful spaces that we have within Boston.”

The first-person-view of drone footage starts at the top of the John Hancock Tower and then swoops down across the square and straight into the library. The much larger 360-degree project will debut later this winter. The immersive filming was made possible by the Boston Public Library Fund with the generous support of Bank of America.
