Art Nouveau Metro Entrance

The build was inspired by the Paris Metro Art Nouveau entrances designed by renowned French architect Hector Guimard.
 
Arch. Guimard designed two types of entrances to metro stations, with and without glass roofs. Built in cast iron, they make heavy reference to the symbolism of plants and are now considered classic examples of French Art Nouveau architecture. 141 entrances were constructed between 1900 and 1912, of which 86 still exist.
 
One of the more notable feature of this structure/station was the undulating roof, portions of which are covered in glass. Tried to make this building light and airy as oppose to the heavy built up structures of the other architectural styles. Another goal of this build is to incorporate the curve ornaments associated with the Art Nouveau style.
 
The build consist of 997 bricks including 1 minifigs. 
 
This is my 39th build, and hopefully more to come. As with my previous sets this build is fully playable. If you like this model please do share and support this build through your friends and your social network.
 
Your opinions, suggestions and comments are most welcome.

Thank You and Happy Building :)
