Meant to be a Photo
Meant to be a Photo

I handed my phone over to some drunk bloke to take a pic of us. He pressed the Video Button instead of the Camera button. Better than nothing I suppose (Damn Vivaz)

Cutty Sark Museum (Sketchup Model)

Originally a collaboration with Alexander Chigirinsky, this video shows how the museum was modeled to fit snugly with Chigrinsky's ship ( http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=ed2eade78dbebe8f8f4443fd39fed459 ) . Hope the kmz model will be accepted to Google Earth's 3D Layer soon.......

ArcelorMittal Orbit Sketchup Model (FINAL VERSION)

The latest model of The ArcelorMittal Orbit aka. The 'London Orbit'. Recent pictures & Streetview images of the Olympic Park compelled me to do the following. Additonal Service Block (wow) & refined Observation Platform ie.Cut through in the centre & glazing effect in the upper Outer Platform (slightly less sarcastic wow, lol!). Here's a link to the web-page where you can view/download this model

crazy horse Memorial
crazy horse Memorial

A vid of my Google Earth submission of the Crazy Horse Memorial. Located in South Dakota, this huge sculpture has been carved by a handful of workers since 1948. It is intended to honour the local Native American Community & is not funded by the state (despite a few offers up to $10 million). There is no completion deadline though, due the intention to carve out the rest the body AND the horse on which he's riding, it looks like it will be decades before it is finished.

Harewood House

Flying Trike Concept
Flying Trike Concept

My latest idea for a flying car. The flying trike. The idea is that the trike will be sold seperately as an extreme sports vehicle then the 'flying cradle', as I've come to call it, can be bought / hired as an optional extra... (the layers containing the flying cradle are switched off in the first three scenes). The Trike slots into the cradle by reversing into it & would use it's own power to power the brushless-motor propellors.
ps. thankyou to the modellers who created the alloy wheels, steering wheel & propellors.

The Bourse
The Bourse

The western block of The Bourse business district in Leeds where I work. It was entensively redeveloped in the early nineties as part of the rejuvination of a run-down area of Leeds & is now seen as a part of the trendier/upmarket side of the city. It is the second model to use photos I took with my cameraphone.
