The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Is there any more of it you'd like to show us or background you'd like to give? It looks to me like you slowly developed a jungle area so it had sheer walls and coated them with stonebrick to get your contours but the the actual buildings I see look pretty boxy. From that 1 screenshot it looks like you did a really good job making that area of terrain 'yours' but without a better look at the building(s) I can't really say much about the overall design other than not liking how much 'flat' it has comparable to the developed terrain, it just doesn't seem to have the detail or organic feel that its surroundings do- it's much more regimented. I will note that I work in construction/home remodeling and have a build style that reflects tradition house shapes with deeply textured walls (usually I use 2 layers beyond the wall itself to include detail) so me not liking the shape is likely a reflection of my own preferences. I will give you some serious credit for the number of different blocks you used because my builds usually only use about 5 different blocks it's hard for me to expand beyond that initial set to add diversity while keeping the whole thing looking like it belongs together which you have managed to do pretty well considering you only had 1.6.4 blocks to work with. Without knowing how to objectively rate someone else's work I'll say this much for it: I wouldn't want it in my spawn but I've seen much worse in other server spawns and it was built with a level of skill and detail that I wouldn't criticize without being asked to.
The worst I can say about it is that it isn't to my tastes…
[My builds tend to be either flagrantly artificial (geometric, symetrical, with a palette that stands out from the surroundings) or almost completely concealed. This occupies something of an architectural uncanny valley for me. ]
I like the block palette (particularly given 1.6 restrictions) and a number of the details (fountain, gazebo, multiple aerial galleries). Nicely done…
