I was glad to find more useful resources in the process of completing the project. Our university library seems to have a very decent architecture section which I made use of in the modeling process. The books most relevant to this particular project deconstructed the Victorian house and old cathedrals. The first one aided me with thinking of colour and texture while the later was an excellent resource of information in terms of layout.
Making different structures fit together and not look like the building is collapsing was one of the biggest challenges. Since the model isn’t copied from an actual building but more of an amalgam or various elements, I think it very possible that there could still be structural integrity issues within the design. Nevertheless, those books helped a lot!

Another book that offered great insight into the building of arches was a Gaudi book found last year when doing research for the floating city project.
