This part of the project started 2 months ago and the final order arrived just after new year. So this morning I finished it and made the photo's.
The Observatory of the Unseen University in Ankh-Morpork. See the stars and wonders of the Discworld up close. But not for too long, your eyes will start to fall out.
The Great Hall will attach here, to the arch so you can acces the courtyard from the Great Hall.
Overview of the small courtyard and outer wall of the building.
The Wall of Names (revised) attached to the Observatory.
Top view featuring the tower.
The inner wall facing the University courtyard.

This is brilliant, really! I am always facinated about that technique which lets you build a round wall. The brown spiral leading to the tower's top is a great touch. But there so much more to see in the scene, and I like everything there. Very remarkable is also that corner alcove. That's excellent technique!

The tower is very nice, but the buildings beside of it are also great.
It looks really like they had over the years put the one building against the other. The wall of names is also very nice.
This is based on the Unseen University for wizards in the city of Ankh-Morphork

As far as the MOC goes, I like the unusual layout and all the roofing is nicely done. Only thing that really bothers me is the mix of the old warm grey and the new cool grey. But that's a personal peeve!

i agree! i would add a stairway around the though, you know, one that's attached to the outside wall of the tower that goes all the way up to the roof. i would also replace the telescope, by a 4x4 or a 2x2 telescope, to give that little bit of magical/fantastic touch...

The observatory is amazing, as well for the buildings next to it.
I think this is a great project, and till now it's perfectly executed!

The outer wall of almost every wall is different and the random green tiles on the roof really help bring in the feel of a lighthouse of observatory feel.
The observatory itself is awesome, that pattern being perfectly executed all the way around the tower, and the cobble flooring as well.
