Thread: Deutsche Bank 3D model

  1. #1

    Default Deutsche Bank 3D model

    Acting upon Viktorkrum's request, this thread is going to follow the construction of my 3D model of the Deutsche Bank Building (aka 130 Liberty Street).

    It will a structurally accurate (or as accurate as I can make it) model that will include internal columns, seperate floors and, most importantly, an accurate facade made entirely out of Polygonal Objects. No materials, except basic black and grey etc and glass on the various objects.

    I haven't made a start yet, but I do have the following to work from...

    The draft, using the above material. Was the building a square? And can I have some roof details please, Mr. Krum? (Sorry for the name - I don't know what else to call you - Viktor?)

    Yes, it was a square.

    Roof details:

    You can make more sense of this than me, but apparently somehow the building was like 3 WTC and raised off the ground:

    And I have just had a huge realization I must change in the original drawing, so don't do anything with it until I update it.

    Shot, as my friend would say (Meaning, nice one, that's what I wanted to hear).

    Don't forget there was the Plaza, which connected to the WTC by a bridge in between 2 and 4 WTC. So, essentially, it was raised to the same height of the WTC.

    Look here, in my model.

    It's also seen in that Emporis link you gave me...

    Down the bottom; you can see a small bridge going out of frame.

    This is the new 90% accurate image. The reflecting sun made me switch back and fourth between what were the faux panels and what were the office windows, but thanks to some new photos I discovered, it's fixed for good.

    I still don't understand how the building being above street level made it possible to enter the lobby, since the lobby's at the bottom of the black façade. And then, this part that was raised, was it seriously a boring manila color, why not just place the building on the ground like One Liberty Plaza and the World Financial Towers, or build a real base that copied the façade. This whole thing perplexes me.

    OK, thanks. I'll keep you updated.

    I'll work on it tomorrow, maybe in the morning, maybe in the afternoon. It depends on what I have to do... I still have last week's homework to do.

    Oh and BTW I have an overlay of Lower Manhattan for Google Earth from before 9/11. I can use that for roof details.

    Cheers.

    Maybe the plaza raised above lobby level, and there were stairs from the lobby up to the plaza? Maybe it wasn't raised, but the plaza was just kind of "glued on to the side" of the building? If you get my drift...

    I had the same conversation in my head before I realised the WTC plaza was raised. Seriously. I had no idea how the mezzanine in the tower lobby - clearly above ground level - could possibly by the entrance from the plaza level.

    Might I recommend posting the updated façade on the first post?

    Will you render the demolition of the building in 3-D, that would be really cool?

    What do you mean by the demolition? Oh, and nice work, Viktor. That's what I needed.
