I don't think it would be hard, Different yes.  Start working on it, when you have problems post them on this thread and I'm sure we'll all get you through it.

I would just experiment a lot to get the best results.  It would be pretty fun to have a set of construction docs wouldn't it?   you could annotate the details with futuristic materials!

what i have been thinking was to get the angles on the tower base was  edit the wall profile, same with the shpere (which is the upstairs lab) i have put a request  out on a couple futurama fourms as to the building layout.

I was thinking that you should make a mass form and then do wall by face.  then you could get a curvature and slope to the sections of the wall on the lower part of the tower.

This is awesome!  Can't wait to see it finished.  For the top circular part of the tower I would go to the Modeling Tab - Create/Solid Form/Solid Blend and create to half circles.  Then put the two half  circles together to create the large circular ball shape on the top part of the tower.
