Thanks. :) The simpler part of the model in the background was made by a colleague using a technique called stereophotogrammetry, which is a fancy way of saying that aerial images were used to figure out the measurements. Then I came in and added the facade detail just by eye balling the shapes from reference photos, cutting into that simpler model in some places and adding on bits as I went. So the end product closer to the camera is a combination of the two.

Really great idea that,your eyeballing of the detail seems spot on.What do you do with all these models?

We're in the process of building a model of the whole of London, chunks of which are sold to companies who are planning new skyscrapers and whatnot, so they can use them in their flashy architectural visualisations.

But lately thanks to the Olympics we've been getting a lot of interest from tv companies and newspapers for their opening titles and graphics. We're really looking forward to seeing how all these things turn out. :)
