I mostly model in Sketchup, so finding a file conversion that would smoothly integrate from the 3DSMax format into Sketchup took some work. Since the library sits on a busy streetcorner, the temptation will be to render the building from the reflecting pool and small park to the south of the building. That is the most common view in most photographs of the building, as the building sits high above the street, which is populated with restaurants and makes for a difficult view of the building itself.
However, I imagine that most submissions will be this same shot over and over again, so my desire is to find an angle of the building that is different while portraying the exterior in the best light possible.
