Nicely done - every strut and wire properly visible, no burnout - spot on

I like this - very busy, yet the main lines stand out from the clutter.

the structure of the building is strange, do you have a photo of the exterior?

It is a geodesic dome, or several domes linked together, the engineering for which was developed by the American Richard Buckminster Fuller whose mission was to create lightweight structures initially for the US navy but with the concept of creating climate controlled colonies and space applications. I was lucky enough as a student to attend a 2 hour lecture by him and it was riveting. link

One anecdote sticks in my mind when he took his students up to a mountain ridge before dawn. Watching the sun appear he told them to remember the sun is stationary and we are on a massive spaceship rotating in space, and to feel themselves literally moving towards the sun.
