Frank Lloyd Wright in Google Earth

By March 22, 2007 No Comments

Ok so its not as impressive as the Frank Lloyd Wright model in the Half Life 2 Engine (see our Movie) but its still an impressive model, this time in Google Earth.

The Robie house, recently uploaded to the Google 3D Warehouse by Austin Metzger, is considered one of the most important buildings in the history of American architecture. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for his client Frederick C. Robie the building inspired an architectual revolution.

You can download the model for viewing either in Google Earth or Google SketchUp. Take a look at the Preservation Trust page on Frank Lloyd Wright for more info.
