So -- was the content "appropriated" from one of the existing, recently-completed digital Larkin models we've seen here ?

The flying trip through Larkin is like a trapped sparrow's view.

Yes. The text found below the image, three responses to the posting, address the limitations of the video tour and its use as a "game." How this amounts to
a video game, I don't get. The English employed by the poster isn't very good, either.

Perhaps this should be brought to the attention of David, and/or Meisolus ? Was there another modeler involved in a Larkin reproduction ?

It seems that virtually rebuilding this building has become fashionable.

To be able to visit this building interactively, in my opinion the model that until now offers a better degree of detail is this:

When I was making my own model, I found it quite useful to understand the less photographed parts of the building.

Thanks ! I am partial to SketchUp images, with their Japanese-print hard outlines. I like drawings of architecture -- and other objects -- that look like drawings, I guess.

Each medium has its strengths and individual qualities; some buildings, at least, look good in watercolor:
