The Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) can now be viewed in 3D on Google Earth.
One of the few Canadian 3D models on the software, the museum joins Toronto’s Rogers Centre and buildings used for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
“We are very excited to see this architecturally stunning building take a place of prominence on the virtual Earth,” said CMHR president and CEO Stuart Murray. “We hope everyone who visits the Museum online will be motivated to come see the real thing when it opens in Winnipeg next year.”
While still under construction, the CMHR was studied by Google project managers who worked to recreate architect Antoine Predock’s complex geometry, textures and colours of Tyndall stone, concrete and massive expanses of glass.
