    Gothic Cathedral

    This is my first (and perhaps last?) try at building a typical gothic/ neogothic church. I was inspired by, among others, Notre Dame in Paris, K├Âlner Dom in Cologne and Uppsala Cathedral. I built the church as an entry to Swebrick's contest Master Builder of the Year (and was therefore forced to squeeze the building to 2 x 4 baseplates, which unfortunatly makes the propotions a bit off) We also made a small movie!

    Hi! Here is my entry to Brixtar's Modular Building Challenge! This build was quite a challenge! I often build larger buildings, but this time I was restricted to a 32 x 32 stud footprint. Another challenge was to design a sturdy dome. Anyway, I hope you like it! Comments and criticism are welcomed!

    Grand Lodge

    Thanks again! Well, the future will tell ;) I totally agree! Especially since it's such a typical element for 19th century architecture. I might got you covered ;)

    Grand Lodge

    Thanks guys! I kind of agree. I'm not really pleased with the proportions of the building. But a second floor would make the builing ridiculously tall, in comparison with the 32x32 baseplate. What is the third one? (Looking for a hat trick ;) ) Do you mean the top of the niche? The semi-round shape is created with 6005s (Brick, Arch 1 x 3 x 2 Curved Top) and 87620s (Brick, Modified Facet 2 x 2). Does that make sense?

    Gothic Cathedral

    Thank you very much! Thanks! Yes, you can remove the roof. You can actually split up the church in 10 pieces, but is only for pratical reasons. The interior is very colorful and is not really meant to be seen :P

    Gothic Cathedral

    Thank you guys! I really appreciate your comments! Thank you! It's never too late to try! Since I started buiding with Lego again, about seven years ago, I have wanted to build a gothic chuch like this one! And I finally did it when the Swebrick contest came up. I choose to build a church mainly because "I had so many grey bricks". (an assumption that proved wrong, I ended up buying grey pieces for like $500) The church is actually quite sturdy! The buttresses are, just like real gothic architecture, thick, which makes the walls very sturdy. Some of interior structure could have been less fragile though :P I haven't weighed it, but I would quess that it weighs around 15 kg.

    Gothic Cathedral

    Thanks guys! Thanks! I think it's around 20 000 - 25 000 pieces!
  8. While putting the finishing touches to the kingly shaped tree, the king's gardener made his first, and probably last, mistake. Built for a tree competition held by the Swedish LUG Swebrick! C&C are welcomed!

    Thanks Soccerkid6!
  10. I think your project turned out great! It has been a lovely ride to see your building evolve and I'm already looking forward to your next build in the same genre! Thanks for the shoutout btw :)

    Baroque Palace [MOC]

    Hi! Since new year I've been working with this LDD MOC. As you see it's in the WIP stage. But my plan is to update it continuously in this thread until it's complete! It is rendered with Bluerender.

    Baroque Palace [MOC]

    Thank you! It is heavily inspired by the Louvre Palace. I've been looking at floor plans, photos, Google maps, drone videos from Youtube and old illustrations.

    Baroque Palace [MOC]

    Thanks guys! The last days I've been working on making the project modular with somewhat standardized parts. Here's an example: I have also begun with the back of the building:

    Baroque Palace [MOC]

    Thanks! Here's a small update. I have mainly focused on getting around the problem with the lack of dark tan pieces.

    Thank you! Here's the lastest update. If only there were more bricks in dark tan.

    Attack of the Daimyo

    In the early 17th century european traders and missionaries was banned to enter Japan. The shogunate believed that the europeans were forerunners of a military campaign and therefore they were expelled. My project is inspired by these events. The scene depicts some desperate Europeans who tried to take refuge in a castle. Criticism and comments are highly welcomed!

    Attack of the Daimyo

    Hey! Thanks guys! That's correct! Actually I been thinking of building Dejima for some years. Ever since I wrote my history thesis about two swedes who spent some time on the island during the 17th and 18th centuries.

    Ninjago 2015

    Is the red conical hat from set 70735 in ordinary red or dark red?

    Attack of the Daimyo

    Thanks for the comments! Hm, that's an quite interesting idea! :) The only decent japanese themed buildings we have, in "modern" times, are one or two Ninjago sets. At least Ninjago has given us a lot of new pieces!

    Student Nation

    Thanks for the comments! I think it took about a month to build! I wonder why they disappeared. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that universities became more common in Europe and therefore students didn't have move across Europe to study... Thanks! Unfortunatly there is no interior!

    Student Nation

    Student Nations are regional student associations at a university. A similar phenomena, outside northen Europe, are the fraternities at American universities, but it's imperfect comparison. The nation system was once a widespread concept in Europe, but now they only exist by some degree in Sweden and Finland. This building is inspired by Norrland Nation in Uppsala, where I am quite involved. I tried to recreate a scene from the early 1900s. The scene captures a typical day of student life with alcohol, love, an infamous horse incident, fencing and so on. It was the winning entry for Swebrick's contest "Staden vi byggde" (The City We Built) Comments and criticism are highly welcomed :)

    Attack of the Daimyo

    I'm overwhelmed! Thanks so much guys! Yeah, I know. Sadly, photograpy is not one of my storgest sides. And the swedish dark winter makes it hard to take good pictures with natural light. Thanks! The building is just hollow, so there isn't much to see. And unfortunately, after I had taken some photos I began to tear it down.
