Default Architecture - The Great Hall

Started this today after watching a documentary about
Berlin. As I couldn't sleep, I fired up Modeler. Let's see
how far this will go.

Cheers.
Roger

Cool, man. I was wanting to do that myself at some point too. Apparently the dome is so large that it would have it's own internal weather patterns.

I've been to Berlin but I don't recall seeing that one. But then, there's so much to see you can't get to all of it in a couple of days!

Nice looking model so far. It's got that feeling of overwhelming proportions that many of the old buildings around that city had. Our friend Wilfried had me standing in front of one of them and he asked me how I felt. I promptly said I felt very small and insignificant and he smiled and said, that's what they were designed to do. Your model captures that impression. Or it does for me at any rate.

Thanks guys! Rigel, the Great Hall was never build. The hall would
have been 290 meters in height. Once it is finished, I will try to do an
overlay over modern Berlin.

Cheers.

Well that would explain it!

I saw what was left of the big railroad station, the one building which I think was tax department offices at that time. He also showed me many buildings which still have surface damage from bombs and bullets. It was quite the walking tour Wilfried gave me that day.

That's roughly a tenth of a mile in height if I have my math right which is not too much shorter than the Empire State Building. Here's a image to give you an idea of how it would stack up next to the world's tallest buildings.



Now imagine the girth of the dome even at the top. A bit awe inspiring to say the least.

Bah, lousy picture doesn't have the CN Tower in there; 1,815.4 ft. Okay, okay it's a tower, not a building but still!

Now imagine the girth of the dome even at the top. A bit awe inspiring to say the least.
Actually, it's closer to a fifth of a mile (.18 miles). According to my unit converter, 290m is 951 feet.

With a dome diameter of 250m (820 feet), without taking into account the internal dimensions - I figure that the volume lost by the thickness of the dome is made up for by the area underneath it - it would have an internal volume of over 1.3 million cubic meters, which is a tad less than the current largest building by volume, the Boeing Everett Factory, and double that of the world's largest dome, the Ericsson Globe.

But yes, it's not surprising that a dome that large would have its own weather patterns. Even Moffett Field's Hanger One is large enough that fog sometimes formed inside (before they took all the paneling off).

Considering that both of those buildings were built relatively recently, I wonder if that dome would even have been feasible in the 1940's. Though I suppose that if you rule the world, the expenditure of resources isn't necessarily a consideration...

Yeah, it would have been quite breathtaking. Here's another update.
I added a few more details. The quadriga is just a standin for now and
made of a free horse model an a DAZ figure. Gonna try to model model
it myself at the weekend. Also I made a comparison render with the great
Empire State Building Mesh by Woody and the CN Tower ;-)

Cheers.

Man, that is just huge! Even with the comparisons I have a hard time imagining it.

Thanks guys! Tried to model the quadriga and well...
my horses look kinda retarded and Germania is
barely recognizable as a human being. So it might
work for wider shots, but close ups are ous of the
question ;-)

Cheers.

If you want, we can lend you the horse from premiere content. I think it would be a worthy cause and frankly, no need to reinvent the wheel.

Hey guys!

I dug this project up once more. I even extended it to more
buildings of Germania. Let's find out how many polygons
my machine can handle ;-)

Cheers.

I remember seeing this in the Man in the High Tower, it would have been huge at the time.

Yeah, it's huge. I did another rendering with the
Pentagon in it.

As much as The man in the high castle was eye candy,
they got quite a bit wrong with Germania. Placing of
the buildings and lack of buildings. Also the modern
Federal Chancellery is there. But that's just me nitpicking ;-)
I love the show.

The plan is to have a VR version once I am done with it.

Cheers.
