1980s desk organizer meets Night on Bald Mountain


I don’t know how; I don’t know when, and I don’t even really know why, but I’m determined to one day make or have made a GM Renaissance Center desk organizer.

While trying to find good aerial shots of the complex, I found that the reliable band of volunteer turbo-nerds at the Google Sketchup 3D Warehouse have come through with alarmingly detailed models of both the Ren-Cen and the Ambassador Bridge (sadly, nobody’s taken it upon him or herself to mock up the Casino, though this Renaissance Center in Lego almost makes up for that).

I don’t know what anyone would do with either of those, really, but I find it difficult to believe that there isn’t a 3D printer squirreled away somewhere on campus (perhaps someone working as a sessional instructor could look into that and pull some strings—paging Professor Langlois). In the mean time, here’s everyone’s favorite Brutalist monstrosity done up in Tiggerific Orange.
