Minecraft - Oslo Opera House by MinecraftArchitect90 Minecraft - Oslo Opera House by MinecraftArchitect90
My latest ongoing Minecraft project, Oslo Opera House.
This build is close to completion, it has required continuous R&D throughout construction.
Any suggestions or improvements are welcome to the final product, the interior will be fitted out when the exterior is finished.

Info:

A modern marvel in one of Europe's finest cities, Oslo's main opera house is both a world wonder & one of the world's finest cultural centers. This magnificent structure is the home of the Norwegian opera & ballet, but it's more than an opera house; it is also an arts complex, where numerous contemporary pieces of art are on display, in the foyer, & of course the building itself. 

The building's design is distinctive with it's predominantly sloping angular motifs which form an integral part of it's design. Construction began in 2003 after a decision to build a new, modern opera & arts venue in the city. It is built from highly polished Italian marble & has the same sloping features on the glass facade as well. The plaza provides visitors with an unobstructed view of the city & surrounding area. It is also built for skateboard users as the gentle slope facilitates skaters & pedestrians alike.

The opera house features two auditoriums, bars, restaurants, it's own car park & supreme acoustics. Towards the rear of the building are the production areas for rehearsals & preparations before a performance at any given time. It has a seating capacity for 1,350 spectators & all can enjoy a perfomance while taking in the elegant, wood-paneled walls & lighting inside the main auditorium.

The opera house was completed in 2008 after five years of work, & already it has been noted for it's clean, modern design & has picked up several accolades. This alone is enough to call Oslo Opera House a work of art in it's own right

Hello, I am just amazed by your build :O

I play on a server and we host the anual citizen awards, and I was looking for something modern for the 2017 one, and I think this is it :) I would like to know if you have a world download, tutorial, schematic or some source I can make this build on my server. If you let me use it I will put 100% credit to you on the build on the server :D 

I am new to DeviantArt so idk if this has pm or something but just in case you wanna visit the server :)

Hi,
I'm very glad you like this build, this is also one of my personal favourites :)

Unfortunately I don't have this building in Minecraft anymore after my SSD failed, I had a backup of my world but it was six months old. I might rebuild this in the future however.

I can't remember how long this took me to build, but it was a few weeks. I'll rebuild it soon after I get a few other things done :)

How long does it take you to just flatten the area out? I'm just wondering if there's a quicker way than TNT.

This looks fantastic btw!

There's a very fast way of laying foundations for big builds. If you have cheats enabled, you can use the fill command. You need to turn on F3 to get the coordinates of the two points you want to mark out. It's a bit complicated but it means you can get flat building grounds very quickly & with minimal effort.

And thanks, I'm glad you like this opera house, it's my favourite modern building ever! :)

ah, that's what I'd thought. I'd tried to follow something like that and it didn't work. Not exactly sure what I did wrong.

If I might suggest a build for you, and if you fancy building something similar to this (in terms of what it is: opera house), I would say the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts! (It's in my home-town)

I'll share some tips with you: every build is a gradual learning process, and a little daring. Also, some background music helps the concentration & motivation too :)

Thanks, It's been more than a week, but I'm close to completing the exterior as we speak. Then I'll furnish the foyer, production areas & above all, the auditorium. I'll take a day if I put the rest of the day to it :)

I built this alone without any mods used, like with all my other builds.
When the interior's finished, maybe Herobrine might stop by for some ballet! ;D
