#**[LAST WEEK’S THEME: SKYSCRAPER](https://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/l9e58o/minecraft_biweekly_build_challenge_116_skyscraper/)**
What a fantastic build that is fairly self contained but looks great on its own, with the magnificent background and amazing atmosphere. There are many different skyscrapers, and each own is great and unique. What really sets it apart, is that despite these skyscrapers being different, they come together and blend so nicely to create the whole build. It isn’t convoluted at all, each one helps to complete the build. Only criticism I have, is that I feel you may have overdid the end rods, but that’s only my personal preference (others may love it).
Well we go from space city to a much different era. However, there’s no denying that this captures the feel of the time very well and also is as well built as you could expect. What impressed me, and this always does when it is done correctly, is how there’s only one colour in the build. And it’s not boring to look at! You have by far more red than any other colour but the build is still super interesting! So great job! Love it!
Back to the future! What stood out for me in this build was the shape of it. It isn’t a normal looking skyscraper that just goes up. There is a shape to it, and it isn’t totally unrealistic. I’m not an expert in building skyscrapers in real life, however I do feel like this is one that could exist in real life (or something close to it). Also, a small detail that I loved was the use of a blue interior. It blended so nicely with the exterior (which was also blue).
This week we all become kings and queens! Or, possibly someone designing something for them…
Yep, we’ll be taking a crack at designing the best garden for the monarchy. Whether you choose to make a grand, fancy vineyard for them, a large field of wheat, or maybe a hedgemaze with some flowers growing around it, that’s up to you!
Build a garden that you would see fit for a king or queen. It must have something growing in it (doesn’t have to be limited to the game). Hedgemazes are also accepted!
Castle/House is not required but can be built if you want.
