Re: Washington Square buildings (20, 100, 111 Washington Ave S)

I would say architecture's primary function is almost never art. This is true of probably 99% of buildings, with some exceptions being monuments and starchitectural creations. That is, if architecture (practice) is to buildings (product) as sculpture (practice) is to a sculpture (product). Anyways,...

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

the power, to load 5+ models into google earth and navigate around an imaginary minneapolis to take pictures, far exceeds my computer.

Re: Nicollet Hotel Block

Would you be able to do another model of the last photo but with Xcel Hq, Marq 4 and Ritz block development all added in? That looks a bit outdated. Oh and maybe the new Hennepin developments like the 1/2 block between 222 and the Federal building.. and the 1/2 block just across Henn. from Gateway....

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Air Rights Development

I didn't actually read the title of the thread at first, and my first thought was 'Huh, that looks like Advance-thresher in the background'. Alas, that would make this Block 70, the site of the Ramp. my exact thought as well... that looks like thresher square in the background... This is a google e...

Re: Mortenson / USBank project - 333 Hennepin Ave E

It reminds me of an annoying kid having too much fun. Someone needs to tell the building to grow up and become something. That being said, I don't hate it. I like the color schematic. I like that they have some bold design elements... but they need to pick one and focus on that... and make every oth...

Re: Mortenson / USBank project - 333 Hennepin Ave E

I like it. I'd love to see one rendering of all the towers proposed in NE. Anyone have that modeled? My model for the alatus tower, along with not being colored and detailed, is 5 floors and around 50' too tall. My model for 333 Hennepin is not yet detailed. I haven't yet created a model for the su...
