This is a creation that took about a month to complete. It is a diorama-sized minifigure scale interior of part of a building, measuring approximately 50 studs long by 20 studs deep.

It is a peculiar subject since it was adapted from the unpopular anime series GOSICK, set within a fictional European country in the 1920s. This particular building is a tower library, with a circular interior, and what is shown here is just a section of the top floor of the tower.

Most of the top floor is covered by a botanical garden, with a wide variety of plants. The stairs lead up to the top floor from the next lowest floor.

The top floor is lit by a wall of windows. You can also see the elevator well from this angle.

I know this creation isn't perfect (there were many places where I didn't have enough pieces to fix  :sceptic: ), but I hope you enjoyed it nonetheless.  :classic: Have a good day!

Hot diggity damn, that's good! :oh: :wub:

I love how you've done the floor at forty-five degrees.  That must have taken a lot of patience!  The overall look is superb, and despite not having all the pieces you wanted, you've managed to create the vast lightness of a botanical garden :wub:

This is quite amazing. The subject is great, and I love the profusion of plants - such a riot for the eyes! (in a good way, of course! :thumbup: ) The tiling on the floor is amazing as well. Just beautiful.

Wonderful detailing, particularly the minifig arms in the second floor railings, and the whole build effectively exudes a realistic botanical garden. Beautiful work quy! :thumbup:
