Current progress:

The basic shell of the building is complete. Now for the fancy-shmancy internal fittings, such as the library and some kind of lecture hall. A refectory might not be bad idea, either.

This build is inspired by the House of Wisdom, of ancient Baghdad.
This was an ancient library and institute of translation where all the smartest cookies in the Islamic Empire gathered to be clever together. The House is credited with gathering together the greatest philosophers, scientists, and scholars of the Islamic Golden Age, as well as the preservation and translation of texts that would otherwise be indecipherable, or lost forever.

The actual House of Wisdom probably looked nothing like this, and came much later than the ziggurats of ancient Mesopotamia that I am modelling this project on.

Texture pack is Arabesque HD.
