Welcome to Project Byzantium, my current mega project which ambitiously aims to recreate the entire city of Constantinople (modern Istanbul) as it was around 1180 A.D, upon the death of Emperor Manuel I Komnenos. The scale I will be following is 1:1, i.e 1 block = 1 meter.
The first and current phase of the project will involve building every major monument/church in the city in their pristine condition (for now).

This project has been under construction on and off since 2015

Great stuff! Your Myrelaion puts mine to shame ;) Keep up the fantastic work, I look forward to more!
Thanks, I hope you'll find some inspiration in my work to further improve your style. We need more Byzantine builds.
glad to see so many Constantinople builds start up recently, now we shall see which one ever gets completed :P
Yeah, I'm not sure where this sudden influx of Constantinople builds comes from. Not that I mind, competition is a good thing.
