Reading power plant

The Reading power plant is one of Tel Aviv's most famous landmarks. Built in the mid 30's of the 20th century, This modernist structure was located in the far north of the city. During the years, the city has grown and the power plant found itself very close to the city center. The huge chimney (150 meters high - the 3rd tallest structure in Tel Aviv) was added in the 60's in order to distance the polution from the ground. Today, the power plant works on natural gas, which droped the polution levels to minimum. The original international style building of the power plant is often used for exhibitions and farries.

Dom St. Peter und Paul Brandenburg

Der Dom zu Brandenburg, den Aposteln Petrus und Paulus geweiht, ist das älteste erhaltene Bauwerk und Ausgangspunkt der Geschichte der Stadt Brandenburg an der Havel. Die Grundsteinlegung erfolgte 1165 durch den Mönchsorden der Prämonstratenser. Es entstand zu Beginn eine einfache kreuzförmige Saalkirche im romanischen Stil, welche in den folgenden Jahrzehnten mit dem Ausbau des Längshauses, der Krypta und dem ersten Teil der Doppelturmfassade zu einer romanischen Basilika erweitert wurde. Aus dieser ersten Bauperiode sind nur wenige Bauelemente, wie die Grundmauern des Chores und Fragmente des nördlichen Querschiffes, erhalten.... (Quelle: www.stadt-brandenburg.de)

Kapellbrücke("Chapel Bridge"), Luzern (+3d-PDF by 3dHH)

(75 kB at 3cm/px photoresolution) The Kapellbrücke ("Chapel Bridge" in German) is a 204 m (670 ft) long bridge crossing the Reuss River in the city of Lucerne in Switzerland. It is the oldest wooden bridge in Europe, and one of Switzerland's main tourist attractions. The covered bridge, constructed in 1333, was designed to help protect the city of Lucerne from attacks. Inside the bridge are a series of paintings from the 17th century depicting events from Luzern's history. Much of the bridge, and the majority of these paintings, were destroyed in a 1993 fire, though it was quickly rebuilt. Adjoining the bridge is the 140 feet tall Wasserturm (Water Tower), an octagonal tower made from brick, which has served as a prison, torture chamber, watchtower and treasury. Today the tower, which is part of the city wall, is used as the guild hall of the artillery association. The tower and the bridge are Lucerne's trademark and form the most photographed monument in the country. The modell is simplified, but otpimized for GoogleEarth. There is also an interactive 3d-PDF with the model, where yuo can rotate and zoom the model inside the PDF without having GoogleEarth or SketchUp installed (see link below).
