Is there any way to display a 3d building model as a layer under OpenLayers ? i have the building models drawn using Google sketchup , is that useful ?

I think not, but OpenLayers accepts reading KML files. Try to export your sketch to KML and see how it is rendered.

There is a new Javascript library called Kartograph that enables some 3D mapping.

Openlayers doesn't support 3D. You can do it with other library like ReadyMap
