The Quadrangle at University College London was designed by William Wilkins and constructed between 1827 and 1828. It is a natural building of urban research as its surroundings provide a mix of architectural styles. The 3D model of the quad was built using SketchUp with photos grabbed via a mobile phone – quick and simple.
Regular readers will recognise the model from our previous Elder Scrolls IV Game Engine work. We found the model on an old hard drive for a group of students working on a new UCL project. As such we took the opportunity to load it into Lumion and add it into a future Bloomsbury created using CityEngine. Finally, the falling cubes (CASA branded, home of digital urban) are via 3D Max, linked in from a previous tutorial on Mass FX:
