  1. Hi all, being my first acitivity here (beside my introduction post) I would like to show my MOC design of an iconic skyscraper here in Frankfurt, the so-called "Messeturm". It is located close to the city entrance of the Frankfurt trade fair area, what is the reason for the building's name (German word for "trade fair" is "Messe" and "Turm" is the german word for "Tower").The building was completed 1990 and it's architect is Chicago based Helmut Jahn, the interior concept was developed by Mattheo Thun. The building features an entrance foyer with a height of 15m. The overall height of the building is 257m with 64 floors. That makes the Messeturm the 2nd highest building both in Frankfurt and Germany at present. My personal motivation for this MOC was the fact that I can see this famous building with it's iconic roof pyramid construction from my office as well as from my living room. Instructions for this MOC ( pdf) are available for free on (search for user Franziska or Messeturm). Hope you like it :-) Cheers, Franziska

    Franziska says "Hi"

    Hello World ;-) my name is Franziska and I am AFOL located in Frankfurt, Germany. I left the dark ages a couple of years ago, when a friend surprised me with a LEGO gift of a building, that we had visited before while traveling to the US. So it was the famous Robie House from the Architecture series that brought my attention to the bricks again after several decades without contact. My father owned a LEGO collection with over 50,000 parts already in the early 60's that were going to be my childhood playground. I still own that old collection and after my "brick-rebirth" through the Robie House gift I started to collect lots of sets, mostly from the Architecture theme, Modular Buildings and Creator Expert series. In between my husband also began to show interest in LEGO again so that our collection today also includes several Technic sets. All by all there are about 400,000 bricks currently living with us. I have also started building some MOCs, two of them can be found on rebrickable (search for user Franziska). I am looking forward to new inspiration browsing here and probably may be more on the reading than on the posting side due to restrictions in time. Cheers Franziska
