@eric-s and Donovan are taking it to the stream and diving into some pool modeling! The Hearst Castle is a notable piece of architecture and includes a beautiful pool that has, as far as we know, never been recreated as a SketchUp model! Join us live and see history being made on YouTube!
I was thinking “wow, I don’t know that one. Hearst. might be scottish. but a pool ? weird…”
Hearst Castle, known formally as La Cuesta Encantada (Spanish for "The Enchanted Hill"), is a historic estate in San Simeon, located on the Central Coast of California. Conceived by William Randolph Hearst, the publishing tycoon, and his architect Julia Morgan, the castle was built between 1919 and 1947. Today, Hearst Castle is a museum open to the public as a California State Park and registered as a National Historic Landmark and California Historical Landmark.
George Hearst, William Randolp...
Yeah, the presence of a pool makes more sense in an art nouveau Californian “castle”

I just read that the zebras escaped and were shot by neighboring ranchers who wanted new ‘rugs’…
if you want to know more about what went on there, pick up a copy of David Niven’s ‘The Moon’s a Balloon’ - it’s quite enlightening about William Hearst, his friends, the castle and much more …
