How to Model Alvorada Palace   

One of the best iconic buildings from Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, Alvorada Palace, located in Brasilia. In this architecture tutorial, we are modeling this masterpiece step by step with the emphasis on the unique column design.

We are taking the reference imagery and drawing out the lines that are later used to create a 3D model. A couple of interesting commands were used such as sweep2, rebuild, non-uniform scale etc.
