Hello BigSkelding

The geometry for the International center looks interesting enough with all the curves and gentle arcs. Be aware that curved walls are a bit on the difficult side to lot because Maxis textures are mostly made for square buildings. I am not sold on the cones but you may be able to blend them in with the rest of the building with the use of creative textures? Good Luck.

there are few small issues with basic shape of the building. I wouldn't have noticed them if you wouldn't post here the picture of the original, though...
I’ve marked “problem spots on your picture:



  • 1 the lower part of both glass bits (galleries?) suppose to be on the same level. In the case of you model the left, curved one is significantly (I would say whole one floor, lower then another. It is very obvious.
  • 2 These lightwell “caps” are of wrong shape. It has been mentioned before and you’ve replied that you done some work on them.. are those renders current? did you save that work?
  • 3 in you model these parts appear to be of same width/depth. In real building the difference is HUGE – 4-5 times at least..

All that said you’ve made a good progress on your model! keep it up!

In addition to what SimFox says, you should count how many mullions (window frames) are on each area of your building, and you should pay attention to the proportions of each window.

One thing that might help, is when you're about to make a piece, crop out the rest of the photo so that you can only see the piece that you are currently making.  That might help you find the details and subtleties.

I think it looks good overall, but probably needs more roof junk and a bit more work on the textures (i.e. you can see the repeat on the brick textures).
