Reconstruction of the Library of Alexandria in Egypt.

I started this a while ago when a fellow player on Gazamo came up with the idea (iBaked_Muffinz). After a few tries and having to restart the project all over again (including the server downtime of a few weeks), the project is finally finished.

This is a massive building with several rooms and a large garden in the center. The main library is in the large center building. The two smaller wings include a small library and a theater and lecture hall. For the most part there will not be any more work done on this, except maybe a few tweaks of additions here and there.

This project is built on The Land of Gazamo freebuild server. The ip is log.gazamo.com - the project is located at /warp library

Please check it out and let me know what you think. All screen shots are taken in default texture pack, but it does look very nice in Dokucraft and Ovo's Rustic.

UPDATE:
I did a little bit more work on the gardens and fountain. Added some color to the grounds and rebuild the fountain. The changes show in the last screen shot.

Additional Notes

Quick list of other players that helped in some way with this project:
iBaked_Muffinz (inspiration and initial layout)
Gecho44 (center area of side buildings)
Antiqua (chandeliers in the main room)
Arkilum (helped fix the garden)
Progress100% complete

I am a teacher who uses Minecraft as an educational tool. I host a school server featuring a huge map of the ancient world, and would love to include this in the server. Please put this up for download, either in a world file or, better yet, a schematic. I would like to include this soon so please get back to me.
