- 2007: Best of 3D Warehouse awards (blue ribbons); these
buildings come up default in all free downloads of Google Earth when
the "3d buildings" checkbox is checked. They are designed for
planning, rather than for architectural, purposes; file size is kept
small. What is important is giving the "impression" of the
building rather than giving large amounts of detail. View the
associated .kmz files in Google Earth to understand the context; they
are attached to the linked pages below. Be sure to turn on the
"terrain" switch, otherwise buildings made in older software (older
versions of Google SketchUp) will float above the surface.
