First of all, I searched the internet thoroughly to get to know with the project. I picked my angle from where I thought the museum can be best captured, and right away I started modelling the parts visible to the camera.
I picked a frame where the museum is shown from medium distance and occupies only half of the photo in order to include its immediate surrounding in the capture as well.
I decided to try and represent the museum on a winter afternoon with snow, which seemed very interesting from the beginning knowing that the surrounding of the real museum is almost forest-like.
As far as the materials are concerned, the main thing was, of course, the facade material and its reflections. Since the museum is shown from a medium distance I had to enhance this material in post production. The same goes for most of the snow in the picture as well.
The software used in the making of this project were 3D Max, V-Ray, and Photoshop.
