Rebuilding Tacoma

. . . with paper!

After being tipped off by a watchful eye over at Exit133, I made my first step towards rebuilding Tacoma. With what, you might ask? Why, with paper of course! Brick is soo 753 B.C. and wood went out of style with acid-wash jeans as far as I'm concerned. Aluminum is all the rage, but I maintain I am ahead of the curve with my choice of building materials.

Before you decide I've gone off the deep end, let me provide you with some visuals that just may confirm as much:

That's right, I made my very own Old City Hall out of paper! If you think you're a better builder than me, you can make your own over on the City of Tacoma's website.

Looks like a dandy accessory for a Lionel train set!

Would that be a no-smoking allowed building?

Though if you really want to make it authentic you need to add the trees now growing out of the side of the building (ala Luzon), the myriad of broken windows, and the ripped canopies along Commerce Street.

Nice job on the model. Could you make one in 1 to 1 scale?

Yeah, Tacoma's central iconic building is vacant with a broken clock tower. Sad.


I'm just a computer geek that has fallen in love with Tacoma.

So, what's almost as fun as sitting in front of a computer all day? Talking about the growth and development of a new Tacoma, duh!
