So a while back Brian Mathews created this video about the possible applications of Google’s SketchUP for libraries. It’s pretty cool–especially if you’re doing that space planning thing. This week I recreated a model of Fitch‘s Materials Library. It takes about an hour to get used to, but once you’ve memorized the shortcut keys it becomes very intuitive.
Anyway, now Google is trying to get some more buzz by holding a contest. Doing your whole campus (especially if you’re going as far as having it in exact scale) seems pretty daunting. But, hey, you can always do your homework/work later, right?
