[MOC] Apple Square Research Center

Recommended Posts

Apple Square Research Center is a 4-story 96x96 modular building conceived as a revision to my original Apple Square University. Designed entirely in Lego Digital Designer (Stud.io needs an update before I could adapt), this iteration is also influenced by a locale in a Japanese RPG (サクラ大戦3), the Antwerpen-Centraal Station in Belgium, as well as my ongoing career as an electrophysiologist. ASRC and ASU will be on display together at the next Brickworld Chicago (June 20-21, 2020).

Is it weird that I hate you because of your amazing skill? :tongue:

I have no words...your builds are simply fantastic. I have no idea how you manage these things. I’m in awe.

Thank you!  In terms of how it’s done, I think I start off with a goal / focal point to the build (i.e., weirdly shaped domed building from a video game), next try to match that to scale (i.e., a 96x96 open lot in my city) and to the angles and lengths that the trigonometry will allow (i.e., angular floor plan), and finally partition off long stretches of exterior wall into windows and columns in multiples of phi. From there, I start small with window sills and expand back out, copying elements into patterns like tesselations while trying to add variations to the previous pattern with each additional floor.

Great to see you back at buildings. :)

Your style is absolute unique and the building is very impressive again!

Thanks, although sometimes it feels like a curse—I feel trapped from being able to branch out, especially when trying to do MOCs that look more random!


@paupadros @LEGO Train 12 Volts Thank you!
