This is the first MOC I've ever built from scratch,having previosly just dabbled in reverse-engineering other people's creations...

Here's a link to the real building: Opera Nouvel

Unfortunately I couldn't find a way to replicate the small arches at this scale, but I think the model gives a fair general impression of the Opera House.

I'm eager to hear your comments, critiques and advices!

This one is really nice and even your presentation (picture) looks great!  :thumbup:

Compared to the original maybe the section between the area
of the windows (arches) is a bit too thick/too high ...?  :blush:

You did a great job with the roof and I like the whole thing!

I'm very much looking forward to see more stuff like this from you!

Go ahead  :classic:

Thanks for your comment! You're right about the section between the two rows of columns being a little too thick: problem is that the section above the upper row is structural, since it keeps the whole roof in place, and I couldn't make it any thinner. For the sake of keeping the visual balance of the building I decided to make the lower section in the same way and, as a result, the whole thing is a little "stockier" than the original.

Btw, as I was talking about reverse-engineering other people's MOCs...my first successfull attempt was your Metlife Building! Great model and I had a lot of fun trying to understand how you had done it!
