The firm used aerial photos and drawings to create the city’s buildings in a computer aided design (CAD) program. Where aerial photos and drawings weren’t available, designers relied on Google Earth to prepare these CAD files for the 3D Architecture printer. The CAD files were then sent to the 3D Architecture printer to produce models of Stockholm’s buildings. The finished building replicas where then positioned, secured and hand painted along with other landscape features including bridges, cars, boats, trains and trees. Combining the information from the photos, drawings and Google Earth with the 3D Architecture  building models, the exhibit was completed in less than six months and unveiled on April 26, 2006.
