Turning Torso 3D Building

Turning Torso building in 3D in Google EarthAnother excellent model by ‘barnabu’ posted at the Google Earth Community. This time he developed a 3D model of the Turning Torso , a 190m skyscraper in Malmö, Sweden. This was a tricky model to make (probably not as hard as it was to build the actual building though), and ‘barnabu’ gets kudos from other model makers for his efforts. According to Wikipedia, the lower two “cubes” are for offices, the top 6 “cubes” are residential luxury apartments. Definitely a sight to behold, and now easy to see from every angle in Google Earth!
