Video and Model Details

Video

I have finished my first draft for my fortaleza brazil temple. It’s risky doing a temple model when the temple is still under construction. You never know what will change, or what you will guess wrong. But, since I discovered after rendering that I had trees floating in the air, I will have to re-do this video again eventually anywa.

Description

History

Announcement

The intent to construct the temple was announced by President Thomas S. Monson on October 3, 2009, during the church’s semi-annual general conference.[1]The temple was announced concurrently with the Brigham City Utah, Concepción Chile, Fort Lauderdale Florida and Sapporo Japan temples.[2] At the time, they brought the total number of temples worldwide to 151.

Groundbreaking

A groundbreaking ceremony, presided over by David A. Bednar,[3][ was held in November 2011.[4] About 800 Church members and community leaders attended the ceremony.

Construction

After the groundbreaking, the city came forward to express the feeling that the original double-tower design of the temple was not inline with the look and feel for the city plan. All work on the temple was suspended and the Church redesigned the plan.
