I am a new user and a beginner at sketchfab and i am very excited to give my first entry by participating in the Mad Science Contest,2016.
I have been checking this forum and watching the other entries and they are amazing.
Looking the deadline coming nearer, My PANIC Monster has woken up and...
i decided to break my procrastination and enter in it..
Hoping for the best.
Here is what i got inspired from...
Cénotaphe à Newton
and the story starts with..
This Building designed by the architect (Étienne-Louis Boullée) as a proposal for a cenotaph for the English scientist Isaac Newton in 1784.
The building itself was a 150m (500ft) tall sphere encompassed by two large barriers circled by hundreds of cypress trees.
It was planned 60 years after his death, although it was never made.
Had it been built, it would surely rank as a manmade wonder of the world.
It was FAILED being built at that time because a strong building material like 'concrete' wasn't discovered.
The small sarcophagus for Newton is placed at the lower pole of the sphere. The design of the memorial creates the effect of day and night.
The effect by night, when the sarcophagus is illuminated by the starlight coming through the holes in the vaulting.
The effect by day is an armillary sphere hanging in the center that gives off a mysterious glow.
For Boullée symmetry and variety were the golden rules of architecture.
