Spanish Architecture Project in 3D by Tagzania

Palau de las Arts by Tagzania in Google EarthMy friends at Tagzania wrote me last week to share a project they did this summer for the Venice Architecture Biennale. “The installation consists of 16 screens geographically organised: 16 simultaneous and synchronized 3-min videos are shown on those screens. 13 of the screens have a 3D architectural model on it, developed with Sketchup, and transplanted into Google Earth.” The buildings are placed carefully on the same location shown in the aerial/satellite photos. You can read more about it at Tagzania here. Here is an example of one of the buildings – the Palau de las Arts (as shown in the screenshot). You can view the Tagzania tag for the buildings with links to the GE files. Great work guys!
