But art nouveau style is really hard to make with LEGO bricks, because it is based on vegetal and plant movements, with curves, and our bricks are right. I really like this architecture period, I like walking down the street, looking at those nice details here and there on more classical building. But also this movement gave us some very strange and singular houses.
I am also a great fan of art nouveau and find myself struggling with the same problems as you are - how can one imitate the vital and round ornamentation with elements that are mainly straight and rectangular? Having said that, I must profess that your latest building (the older ones are great as well) is an inspiration for me. The way you combined old and new architecture is simply stunning. Makes me want to run downstairs and start building right away...
