CASA goes 3D at Google World

After a long while playing with Google’s excellent Building Maker, a time-wasting toy for crowd-sourcing Google World’s 3D building library, I’ve completed my first attempt at rendering the offices of UCL CASA. The results are laughably poor, but mainly because, in London’s crowded Bloomsbury, there’s just no open space from which to get a sensible vantage-point of the building. The whole thing is covered in trees, and one of my walls features a huge part of another building which was obscuring the StreetView image I used to put the 3D model together.

Predictably, the best part of the image is the roof, since these were rendered using unobscured sattelite imagery. See what you think of my first draft:
