St. John's Church Newham


Today's post is a little different in that the movie is an amazing 3D model of St John's Church in Stratford, East London (which also just happens to be where I live).

St John's Church was designed by Edward Blore, one of the leading architects of his day. It was built in the Early English style with a tall, ornate south western spire. Interesting architectural features are, externally, the lancets (like stone bridges) and internally the moulded piers (grooves in the pillars) and depressed arches (the tops of the arches are flatter than usual).

The 3D model in the movie was developed by the amazing folk at DigitalUrban. DigitalUrban are achieving amazing things with Google Earth. Serioulsy check out their website.
