Designed to be the library of my future city, the Monument to Wisdom is located on a prominent elevation in the inellectual quarter. Haven't started work on the interiors yet, so what you see is basically all that's completed atm.
Don't mind the huge buildings in the back btw. Those will most likely be replaced sooner or later. I still need to flesh out the environment some more, placing more flora and making the square less plain.

This is great, though I've always been partial to library's with some Yellow trimming. I wonder if you have a preference for white stone, or if you haven't tried a small gold trim? Just an idea to toy with.
Great style, I love it. I especially love the front courtyard, just beneath the stairway. Wonderful.

I wonder if this building might be of inspiration to you?

Oh, nice building! That's from Pharaoh, isn't it?

The thing is that I'm working on an entire city based around the same materials/colors. I chose diamond roofs, so that's what I'm going with for now. May decide to go with gold instead if I think all these shades of gray will be a bit bland though. If I ever get around to finish it in the first place that is.Definately like the idea.

Yes that makes a lot of sense. I see where you're going with that.
Yes it is from Pharaoh. Cleopatra expansion technically, but same game.
I've just started working on another building from Pharaoh/Cleopatra that may actually fit in with your theme. The Caesarium.

It's more simplified compared too your generally grandiose neoclassical builds. Perhaps you could embellish the Caesar with something better? :P It does have a blue themed roof however. (well at least in the game, I'm sure you could make it whatever you wanted really.)
