Still on a sci-fi terrain spree with this building made from some packaging I found. It's a form of recycling, right? It even still stacks with the other packaging pieces I have, so it will store easily when I make more!

Nice use of what otherwise would be discarded as trash.

Looking at your building, it struck me that it had no windows, rather like the military buildings I've been in where the classified rooms have no windows and limited doors. Non-government buildings would presumably do the same sort of thing to prevent industrial espionage.

ColCampbell – Thanks!

Grelber – It does remind me of the blocky building on some of the military bases I've been on. I did start to come up with a back story about it being a shelter designed to keep out the particularly hostile fauna of some death world somewhere. No windows and the only entrance is on top of the structure. I didn't develop it further since the post is long enough as it is.

Our saying was "if you have a window, you don't have a real job."

Good looking and you get bonus points for stackable.

Well done! Good thinking to keep them stackable!
