Buildings uploaded for October 15, 2007

Here are the latest uploads to Google’s Cities in Development section of the 3D Warehouse since my last post.

I do have one other thing to report. SketchUp models in the warehouse are now also available in the Collada format. I am not sure what this means, but I have a feeling it has to do with the reported Google Virtual World news that is starting to surface on the various tech blogs around the net. If anyone has any insight to the significance or opinions of this development, leave a comment in the comments section.

02-07 Sankt katharinenkirche

Die Sankt Katharinenkirche ist eine für Braunschweig typische, gotische Hallenkirche. Der erste romanische Bau wurde 1200 begonnen, ab 1252 wurden seine Seitenschiffe durch die neuen größeren und gotischen ersetzt. Dabei wurde die ursprüngliche Basilika zur Hallenkirche erweitert. Bis 1379 wurde die Basis des Westwekes, sowie der Südturm vollendet; dem Nordturm fehlt bis heute das letzte Geschoss. Das Glockenhaus ist hochgotisch, und wurde erst später angefügt.

Central Bank, Dame Street, Dublin, Ireland

The Central Bank is a highly assertive building with a bold outline and dramatic styling. It is visible from throughout the city centre but particularly in Temple Bar where narrow streets and gaps between buildings can reveal its strong geometric presence. Originally after construction the roof was highly distinctive with its support members outside of the roof surface. After problems with rain water, this was redesigned and remodelled with copper cladding covering up the roof structure. It is an unusual building for its time in regard to structure. The floors are all suspended from the twin service cores at 12 support points by the steel trusses visible on the facades. During construction each floor was built at ground level and then hoisted into place with all its service equipment and fittings in place. Internally the offices are lit by floor to ceiling glazing which helps give the buildings its bold striped appearance. Originally the old Commercial Buildings next door were at 90 degrees to their current position but the building was demolished during construction and a new facsimile built on the site to contain ancillary facilities. 1996-2007 Archiseek.com Virtual Dublin Models Image Synthesis Group, Trinity College Dublin

The Four Courts, Dublin, Ireland

The Four Courts Dublin One of the landmarks of Dublin with its large drum and shallow dome, and visible all along the Liffey, the Four Courts derives its names from the four divisions that traditionally were the judicial system in Ireland. These were: Chancery, King's Bench, Exchequer, and Common Pleas. The building's main feature is the dome and main portico. The interior of the Four Courts was reconstructed after the Civil War and the interior rearranged. The central rotunda above is as Gandon designed it with the four main courtrooms opening off it diagonally. This dramatic public space soars up into the drum creating a sombre and awe inspiring venue for the administration of the law. The Four Courts was completed with excellent sculpture by Edward Smyth. On the main pediment, Moses is flanked by Justice and Mercy with Wisdom and Authority also present. Trophies of arms are placed over the triumphal arches in the arcades but they had been emasculated with the crowns replaced by balls. Destroyed during the Irish Civil War of 1921-22, the building has since been restored externally although it was remodelled and rearranged internally. 1996-2007 Archiseek.com Virtual Dublin Models Image Synthesis Group, Trinity College Dublin Compiled by InshoreSurveys Ltd

Hapenny Bridge, Dublin, Ireland

Ha'penny Bridge Dublin The Ha'penny Bridge (Irish: Droichead na Leathphingine) (known later for a time as the Penny Ha'penny Bridge) is a pedestrian bridge built in 1816 over the River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland. Originally called the Wellington Bridge (after the Duke of Wellington), the name of the bridge changed to Liffey Bridge, and somewhat surprisingly, the name remains as so to this day. However, due to its distinct shape as well as the original toll of one halfpenny, (later, one penny, two farthings) the more popular title of Ha'penny Bridge stuck in the minds of the natives. The toll itself was dropped in 1919; before this, turnstiles lay on either side of it.

TCD, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

The University of Dublin, Trinity College, founded in 1592, is the oldest university in Ireland. Trinity College is the sole constituent college of the University. At present there are over 12,000 students and 1,200 staff members working on the College campus. The history of Trinity College can be conveniently divided into four epochs—a century or so during which the foundations were laid, a period of colourful expansion extending over the eighteenth century, and a century and a half of strenuous adaptation to a rapidly changing world Standing on a self-contained site in the heart of Dublin, the College covers some 40 acres of cobbled squares and green spaces, around buildings which represent the accumulated architectural riches of nearly three centuries. Its thirteen and a half thousand staff and students form a compact academic community and are at the same time an intimate part of the city's life. Dublin offers a particularly congenial atmosphere for students and, while small by international standards, it has in all respects the resources of a capital city with a full and varied cultural and intellectual life. Trinity College is one of Irelands leading historical sites, attracting in excess of half a million visitors every year. Heritage attractions available to visitors include The Book of Kells and Walking Tours of the Campus. tcd.ie & Virtual Dublin Models Image Synthesis Group, Trinity College Dublin

Trinity College Dublin, Museum

The Museum Building, which houses the Geology Department, was designed by Thomas Deane and Benjamin Woodward. It is inspired by the Byzantine architecture of Venice and was built in 1853-57. The many interior and exterior carvings were executed by the Cork-born brothers John and James O'Shea, who gathered fresh flowers to use as their models. The exterior walls feature Wicklow granite and Portland Stone. The interior walls are faced with Caen Limestone. The pillars, balustrades and bannisters contain examples of Irish marbles and Cornish serpentine, while the domed roof is made of blue, red and yellow enamelled bricks.

Arts Block, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

Built as an Arts faculty and containing lecture theatres and seminar rooms, libraries, an art gallery and administration and social facilities for over 200 staff and 3,700 graduates and undergraduates. The building was originally constructed between 1968-79 with further work between 2001-03. The building has two distinct elevations - one to Fellows Square which it forms with the Old Library and the Berkeley Library, and one to Nassau Street where it is set back from the street behind the high railings.

Screen Cinema, Hawkins Street, Dublin, Ireland.

Architect: Sir Thomas Bennett / Henry J. Lyons and Partners A soulless 1960s cinema that is partially on the site of two of Dublin's most famous theatres: the massive Theatre Royal and the smaller Regal Theatre next door. Both were demolished to make way for the towering office blocks of Hawkins House and the An Post Building.

Customs House, Customs House Quay, Dublin, Ireland.

The Custom House is a neoclassical 18th century building in Dublin, Ireland which houses the Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government. It is located on the north bank of the River Liffey, on Custom House Quay between Butt Bridge and Talbot Memorial Bridge. It was designed by James Gandon to act as the new custom house for Dublin Port. When it was completed in 1791, it cost £200,000 to build — a huge sum at the time. The four facades of the building are decorated with coats-of-arms and ornamental sculptures representing Ireland's rivers.
