Roman theatre (inspired by Orange, France)

Hello there!

After redesigning my city, I cut away lots of 'bad' buildings and was left with plain empty spots and also often half-left mountains. So I got the idea to 'fill' the mountain, to repair it, by building a theatre /inside/ of /against/ it. This is nothing new, the Greeks used this building method. The Romans were the ones who started creating separate and alone-standing theatre buildings.

This is my first formal building, so I had to experiment and figure lots of things out. For this work, I was inspired by the ancient ruins of the theatre in Orange, France. It's not finished yet, but I'm walking the right path.

What do you think? Hope you like it!

What a senseless roof construction you build there. How is the water intended to flow down?
I see no reason to have this huge walls framing the roof, even for aesthetical reason.
But i really like your terraforming.

Best Regards

It is literally taken from a reconstruction of the Orange theatre

I've thought about adding the red to it, maybe? Red columns somewhere Haven't thought of it yet. I'm the kind of person who first focusses on the main things and afterwards I'll change many things. I think you got a better view then, of how things fit together as whole. Thanks for reminding me of it!

I'm also removing the second level of big arches on the outside, It looks too... not good with the curves of the building haha

Fair enough^^
Do you wanna replace the arches with plain wall then? I think it does look good how it is atm. Sure, the curves screw it up but that's just minecraft being a jerk ;)
