You should make more buildings from Auckland, like Vero Center

De Rotterdam

Hi Everyone!
Hope you all had a great Christmas/New Year.

De Rotterdam,
-Rotterdam, OMA , 2013.
I had wanted to make this model for the longest time, started making it last year as soon as satellite imagery updated.
Think it is an amazing high-rise building, looks like a cluster of buildings joined together, and also a singular tower, depending where you view the tower.
Should be able to piece all the elements together, if you follow the numbers and the photos.

Happy model making!

Thank you for all of your kind comments .

Aon Center
-Chicago, 1973.
DesertBleau999 recommended this building last year, thought it was a good idea, finishes the collection of the Chicago Supertalls.
Hopefully I feel motivated to keep making more models as the year goes on .

Interesting fact about this building, it is the tallest "box-shaped" building in the world. Guess that means it's the tallest building that has no set-backs, rises vertically unbroken from ground level.

Note: I made the base with 120gsm paper (could use thicker), so it was the correct thickness. If you just have standard paper then print the flat base, pretty minor difference anyway.

Until next time!

Tim, there's a problem with your first post, the link of the New York Life Building takes you to the General Motors Building
BTW, will you be doing something else in NY? Just to know

@LAbuilder I have fixed the link earlier.
I have removed the earlier models from my group photo, I keep the links encase people want to make them (I don't haha).

I do have plans for my next model. I want to do something a little different, keeps me interested in the hobby if the projects have variety.
The model may or may not be in NYC, it could perhaps be in an entirely new country .

@made in NL that's exciting De Rotterdam is so close to your house, definitely one of my favorite contemporary towers!

Wow, both of those models are great, I will be making those. Thank you for acting on my recommendation with the Aon Center, but you deserve all the praise. Obviously!!

Maybe you should make Franklin Center, and Two Prudential Plaza; the next two tallest skyscrapers in Chicago sometime in the future. they too are considered supertalls. Just an idea!!.
