About Kodak Tower

Kodak Tower is a 19-story skyscraper in the High Falls District of Rochester, New York, and is part of the Eastman Kodak Headquarters complex. It has a roof height of 340 ft (103.6 m) and stands 366 ft (111.6 m) with its antenna spire included. It was Rochester, New York's tallest building for over 50 years from its completion in 1914 until the Xerox Square Tower surpassed it in the late 1960s. Today, it is the 4th tallest building in Rochester, NY and is the 9th tallest building in New York State outside NYC. The Kodak Tower was constructed on the site of a former factory next to several seven story Camera Works buildings that clustered around the site. Construction began in 1912 and was completed in 1914 with Kodak founder George Eastman presiding over the project. Upon its completion in 1914, the tower held the title of the tallest building in Rochester, New York until the 1960s. The Kodak Tower has long been recognized as a landmark in the Rochester Skyline, and an icon in the world of film photography. The building has also been called the “nerve center of photography”. The Eastman Kodak Company owns the skyscraper, and it remains the company's headquarters. [source: Wikipedia.org]

What is an Isometric Drawing?

Isometric drawings are a pictorial representation of an object in which all three dimensions are drawn at full scale rather than foreshortening them to true perspective. This allows objects that are drawn separately to exist together in the same environment while still appearing to be in true perspective (in relation to each other) regardless of how they are arranged.

Isometric graphics were commonly used in video games during the 1980s and 1990s, as the technique provided a limited 3D effect that could be achieved with the constrained resources of computers of the era. The style is also used for city-building games such as SimCity, Cities Skylines and Minecraft.
