Shanghai, China

The Bund Waibaidu Bridge

Built in 1907, The Bund Waibaidu Bridge, called Garden Bridge in English, is a steel bridge on Suzhou Creek in central Shanghai, connecting the Huangpu and Hongkou districts where the Suzhou River flows into the Huang Pu. The present bridge is a steel truss bridge with two spans. It is 106.7 metres long. There are currently three north bound lanes with a total width of 11.2 metres, and two pedestrian walkways each with a width of 3.6 metres. It was the first true steel bridge in China and the only surviving example of camelback truss bridge in China. With its rich history and unique design, the centennial Waibaidu Bridge is one of the symbols of Shanghai and its modern and industrial image, and may be regarded as the city's trademark bridge.

Rawalpindi, Pakistan

Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi, Pakistan

This is my BEST BEST BEST model I have ever made. This model is of Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium. One of the major cricket stadiums in Pakistan. I don't know that when it was built but I know that Flood-lights were fixed here in 2001. This model took me 1 and a half week. Because I was learning some new modes of modelling in SketchUp by watching help tutorials. Now I think that i am totally capable to create a nice stadium. So I will surely model some more stadiums in other cities of Pakistan. Ok, enjoy using this model and please, rate it for sure. To contact me, email at ahsan.iqbal93@gmail.com.

Un progetto per lo stadio "Alberto Picco" della Spezia – ITALY

La mia personale idea (o sogno?) per il nuovo stadio "Alberto Picco" della Spezia, home of the Spezia Calcio. Lo stadio sorge sopra una grande struttura in cemento armato che racchiude il nuovo sottopasso di via Fieschi e un grande parcheggio sotterraneo. Il grande piazzale all'interno del quale sorge la struttura risponde alle nuove normative e permette un rapido deflusso degli spettatori. Le tribune, strutturate su due anelli rettangolari capaci di una capienza di circa 18.000 spettatori seduti, richiamano la tipica geometria degli stadi "all'inglese" con estrema vicinanza al campo da gioco. Sei strutture sospese alla copertura di alluminio contengono l'impianto per l'illuminazione e quello di audio diffusione; un grande schermo è posto sopra la curva "piscina". sopra l'imbocco sud del sottopasso è posta una fontana con aiuola. il sogno finisce con lo spezia ancora in serie B... FORZA AQUILE!!!.

Madrid, Spain

Museo Thyssen Bornemisza

The Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza is an art gallery in Madrid. It is known as a part of the "Golden Triangle of Art", which also includes the Prado and the Reina Sofia galleries. The Thyssen-Bornemisza fills the historical gaps in its counterparts' collections: in the Prado's case this includes fine examples of Italian primitives and works from the English, Dutch and German schools, while in the case of the Reina Sofia the Thyssen-Bornemisza collection includes impressionists, expressionists, and European and American paintings from the second half of the 20th century. The collection started in 1920 as a private collection by the late Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza (1921–2002). He assembled most of the works from his relatives' collections and proceeded to acquire large numbers of new works to produce what is one of the world's finest private art collections. In 1985, the Baron married Carmen Cervera and introduced her to art collecting. Carmen's influence was decisive in persuading the Baron to decide on the future of his collection and cede the collection to Spain. The museum was opened in 1992 after an agreement was reached between the Baron and the Spanish government. A year later the collection was bought outright. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Algunos de los mampuestos de los muros exteriores son macabrillas, lapidas funerarias recogidas de los cementerios islámicos del barrio. Además es sede canoniga de la cofradía de la Estrella la cual procesiona cada Jueves Santo.

Navy Pier, Chicago, Illinois

Navy Pier (Part 1)

Designed by Charles Sumner Frost, Navy Pier is located on Lake Michigan, just East of Chicago's Downtown, Navy Pier has been a Chicago landmark since it first opened in 1916. Originally designed as both a shipping and recreational facility, the Pier also served as a military training site during two world wars, a venue for concerts and exhibitions, and the temporary home for a once-fledgling University of Illinois' Chicago campus. As the Pier fell into disuse during much of the 1970s and 1980s, the State of Illinois and Chicago embarked on a joint plan whereby, in 1989, ownership of the Pier was transferred to the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority, the same body which oversees Chicago's McCormick Place. The Authority moved swiftly to redesign Navy Pier into one of the country's most unique recreation and exposition facilities. Navy Pier now showcases a unique collection of restaurants and shops in addition to unequaled recreational and exhibition facilities - in a setting like no other.

Cityhall Groningen

Het stadhuis van Groningen staat aan de Grote Markt in Groningen. Het werd ontworpen door architect Jacob Otten Husly en is gebouwd in de neoclassicistische bouwstijl. Tegenwoordig word het gebouw nog steeds als stadhuis gebruikt. In het Stadhuis werken de Burgemeester, de wethouders en hun secretaresses. Op de bovenste verdieping hebben alle fracties van de gemeenteraad een eigen kamer. Er zijn twee raadzalen in het Stadhuis: de oude en de nieuwe raadzaal. De gemeenteraad vergadert elke week in de nieuwe raadzaal. In de oude raadzaal vergaderen de raadscommissies en vindt elke week de persconferentie van B&W plaats. Ook huwelijken en ontvangsten van bijvoorbeeld landelijke politici of ambassadeurs zijn in het Stadhuis.

Martinitower / Martinichurch

De Martinitoren, gelegen aan de Grote Markt, is de bekendste en hoogste toren van de stad Groningen. De toren behoort bij de Martinikerk. De inwoners van Groningen hebben hun toren de naam d' Olle Grieze gegeven, Gronings voor de oude grijze (toren).

Station Groningen

modelling: Floris de Jonge (www.florisdejonge.nl) Station Groningen (door stadjers Hoofdstation genoemd) is het belangrijkste spoorwegstation in de stad Groningen. Na de slechting van de vestingwallen werd het mogelijk om een nieuw representatief gebouw te realiseren. Het Hoofdstation van Groningen behoort tot de fraaiste stationsgebouwen van Nederland. Het is een ontwerp van Isaac Gosschalk en was in 1896 gereed. De westelijke helft van het stationsplein heeft een multifunctionele bestemming gekregen: het hypermoderne Stadsbalkon. Dit bestaat uit twee delen. Het bovenste deel is een groot plein waarover van de Stationsweg naar het station gelopen kan worden. Dit in hoogte golvende plein vormt het dak van de fietsenstalling in het onderste deel. In de jaren zestig werd de stationshal gemoderniseerd, waarbij er een verlaagd plafond werd aangebracht. In 1999 werd het gebouw gerestaureerd. De stationshal werd daarbij teruggebracht in zijn oorspronkelijke staat. (wikipedia 01-09-2007)


De Korenbeurs

De Korenbeurs van Groningen is een gebouw aan de westzijde van de Vismarkt. De beurs, met zijn opvallende neoclassicistische gevel, werd tussen 1862 en 1865 gebouwd, als vervanging van twee kleinere beursgebouwen. De eerste Korenbeurs, werd gebouwd in 1774. In Groningen maakte de graanteelt in die periode een grote bloeitijd door. Het houten gebouw voldeed daarom al vrij snel niet meer. In 1826 werd het daarom al vervangen door een stenen gebouw. Vanaf halverwege de negentiende eeuw begon de handel weer toe te nemen. Het gebouw werd snel te klein, waarop de handel zich deels verplaatste naar het nabijgelegen café, tegenwoordig Huis de Beurs. Dat werd toch als minder gewenst beschouwd, waarop uiteindelijk de opdracht voor een nieuw beursgebouw werd verleend. Het gebouw is voor zijn tijd, modern van opbouw, gelet op de gietijzeren constructie en de toepassing van veel glas. Het glas was nodig om veel daglicht te hebben, belangrijk voor het keuren van het graan. De handelaren, namen monsters van hun aanbod mee. Zij moesten lid zijn van de "Vereeniging de Korenbeurs" . Aan de zijde van de Vismarkt bevindt zich het imposante voorgebouw. Op het dak staan de figuren van Neptunus (zeevaart), Ceres (landbouw) en Mercurius (handel). Achter de voorgevel bevindt zich de werkelijke markthal, een grote open ruimte met tafels voor de meegenomen monsters, waar in het verleden de handelaren hun handel konden afwikkelen. Het bestuur had vergaderruimten aan de voorzijde van het gebouw.
