Acropolis Memory Palace and Sketchup 3D
I mentioned in another post that I was waiting to build my Acropolis memory palace until I had more photos and floor plans available.
I just found models of the Acropolis in Google Sketchup. You can move the model around. Here’s a screenshot:
[Update: Google no longer owns Sketchup, and all the URLs have changed. You can search for the models on their site.]
It’s easy to rotate the ancient Acropolis:
and compare it to the current ruins:
EDIT: here is one more screenshot of a great Sketchup model with the Acropolis entrance, including the Temple of Athena Nike:
This is exactly what I need to create my memory palace.
Sketchup has many buildings available for download. The Palace of Domitian looks nice, and here is a collection of Roman buildings. Check it out and let me know if you find anything that makes a good memory palace!
