This is a landscape pavilion in Chicago’s Lincoln Park. How to use SketchUp to model?

  1. Use the arc tool to draw two semicircles of the same size, and use mirroring to make the two semicircles tangent.

  2. Mirror again

  3. Use the offset tool to offset the inner wall. Then use the push and pull tool to pull out the thickness.

  4. Use soap skin bubble to adjust plane tension.
