    Describing a building!

    My character has just walked outside this building. [green one] In 1-3 sentences, what are some words/descriptions that spring to your mind about it?

    You just walked up to it. What is your initial 2 line mind explosion of description about it?

    Grandiose, in every sense of the word.

    Covered in exquisite glass fittings.

    A steep roof the colour of the forestation that surrounds it.

    Maybe ask yourself: What do you see? What are some of the images, similes that pop into your head. Relax and don't over think it, just observe. What comes to mind?
