As the Arequipa Peru has a mostly completed exterior, and the landscaping is starting to take shape, I decided to update my Arequipa Peru Temple model. I also took the opportunity to extend the terrain and include some of the local volcanic hills.Continue reading “Updated Arequipa Peru Temple model and video”
With the dedication of the Barranquilla Colombia Temple just 3 days away, I was finally able to find enough reference material to complete my temple model. This update features the grounds and some of the surrounding area, as faithfully as I was able to produce them.Continue reading “Updated Barranquilla Colombia Temple video”
This is an early version of my video. As excavation has not truly begun in earnest for the actual temple, one should expect to see a lot of conjecture in this video.
I have finished my Barranquilla Colombia Temple video!
he official render only shows the front, so All I have done is the front and the surrounding grounds. There will be a better version when the temple is finished, or closer to finished. For now this is all I have. Things to do include both sides, the back, and of course the missing portions of the grounds. I have tried to fill in what I could of the grounds, but the official render is taken from such a low angle that it is difficult to make out details.
Still, it took some time, and I am happy with what I have made, so I thought I would share it with you. Enjoy!
I have decided to try to kick off another “Temple a Day” marathon, as I don’t seem to get much done these days without the added deadline. I will include yesterday’s post as part of this run, so I started with Durban and today we move on to Barranquilla Columbia.Obviously I need to work on textures, then place plants. Once that is done I will probably refine the accommodation building on the left and have to call this one done until the temple is closer to finished.
Here is where the model was after the previous go round of marathon.
Update: I have been asked by the Church not to Display their renders of the Arequipa Temple until they officially unveil it/them at the groundbreaking.
As a courtesy I have removed my render as well (since returned, post groundbreaking,) even though portions of it were not based upon those 2 images.
The original post, without the images follows:
Technically, it is not possible to do a model of the Arequipa Temple. There has been no groundbreaking announcement, and consequently the church has not released a render. But there is this fabulous photo of Elder Neil A. Anderson talking with people at the site, in which he appears to be holding a temple render. I have though many times about trying to reproduce that render, but decided there was not enough data there to attempt it. But then early Monday a friend pointed me to this site, which appears to be the site of the Contractor who will make sure the temple complies with local building codes and regulations: http://www.cosapi.com.pe, which has this render on it:Continue reading “Tuesday at Arequipa Peru”
