Wow! That is so fantastic! It looks so modern! Maybe you could have worked on the White Strip on the road a bit more....Other then that, its awesome!

The skywalk has a sort of 1950's/1960's modernist look to it. That's mainly down to the 2/3 window alignment though. I would probably have used tape for the white road markings as the angular nature of tiles means it always looks a little broken up and disjointed. but it's a great idea and nice way to have corner buildings face each other straight on rather than at right angles to each other. :thumbup:

Well, actually that was the point of it. Like a "bridge" (pun intended) between the new and the old buildings design by having a design that is put in the timescale between those to different designs of the two buildings the bridge connected. I was thinking that the Grand Emporium had an early 1900-design, and the new building with glass and steel is designed to be in the 1990-2000 era, and the bridge to be somewhere between those two.

I agree that white tape would have looked a lot better. But I am a bit purist and like to do things with bricks instead of "cheating" with non-LEGO stuff. For instance I made the stickers on the windows on the Kirkegårdsvegen 14 and 16 out of leftovers from a used LEGO sticker sheet. Thus it is still LEGO :)
Back to the road; I think it would have looked better if I have just used some math to it to make the curves. On the model I just made it free handed and by "eyesight" (or whatever it is called in Englsh when you just measure something with your eyes).

I would have love to see some else try to build a modular house that could fit together with the original modular houses from LEGO but with an odd shape of the ground floor seen from above. Has someone else tried it?
Noting is impossible, the impossible only take longer time.
