Juneau State Capitol Concept


the igloo capitol

This is a concept state capitol building for Juneau, Alaska, USA. As a play on the stereotype that Alaska is associated with igloos, I decided to create a concept capitol building in the shape of an igloo.

I had to ensure that the building still looked like a capitol building, so I made capitol-style windows, rings on the dome, and so on. Texturing the large igloos was very difficult. I had to remake the main igloo dome three times to ensure it was evenly spherical. The bricks are all procedurally generated. Various other textures are from Poliigon.

I also created a park outside The Igloo. There are some trees in a grassy plain surrounding a stone path that leads to a statue. This same layout is used on the other side. Both statues are models downloaded from the internet. The Moose is from TurboSquid, and the Eskimo is from wundersound on BlendSwap.
