Hi Bill,
That's looking great :-) Thank you for sharing !
All the views seem to be on the 'surface' of the structure. I don't know what
your lighting setup is but I presume there is only one light_source outside the
structure. Is it getting too dark as you move deeper inside it ? In that case, I
wonder how it would look like if there was no light outside and light inside
some of rooms instead...
Hope you'll maintain momentum !

Pascal
