  1. Someone in my LUG asked me to try Urbino - so here it is - dedicated to all Italianos who are on Eurobricks. Ciau!
  2. The LEGO architecture series is a Landmark thing and it is very unlikely they would release something from Austria, since our fame comes more from Mozart and classical music. Nevertheless I tried to find one buiding, that would represent typical Austrian architecture and which I could transfer to a useful scale, to stand at least a bit of a chance that it would be relesased as LEGO Set. The more famous Castle of Schönbrunn is to wide and would be far too small in height. The Gloriette is mainly beautiful because of sitting on top of a hill. Perhaps the Riesenrad would do, but then, transferred to a miniscale it would look like any ferry's wheel. The Upper Belvedere is home to a world famous painting, The Kiss by Gustav Klimt and thus one of the most visited castles in Vienna. Hope ya like my Version of it. @ Pandora: sorry, didn't know, thanks for puttin' it right
  3. I’d like to kick off with one of my (sort of) master pieces. At least some of my local LUG like it and it was displayed at our local LEGO store. It is a railway stop in Vienna, actually an underground-station of the line U6, but situated above floor level. The architect of the original building was Otto Wagner https://en.wikipedia...iki/Otto_Wagner, world famous for Art Nouveau (Jugendstil) in Vienna, Austria. It is my least „micro“-scale building I’ve ever built, the scale is approx. 1:100. I’ve tried to show as much detail as possible and it showcases each and every door and bench. Just in the wings I had to reduce the number of windows from 8 to 6, to keep the symmetry with the archs below. The roof rests like with the original building on the green stands, so they are functional even within my model. For the Nouveau-Art ornaments came mixel-teeth in quite usefully, as well as the round 1x1 mini-tiles. (klick to enlarge) Here’s a view into the building with the platform, therefor i removed the roof on one side. However, I did not add a train, because I’m more interested in architecture than in trains.
  4. Hi everyone, although this site has EURO in its name i’m quite surprised to find so many here from all over the world, which makes the pleasure to join in even bigger. I’m from Austria, from the very heart of Europe and not to be mixed up with the land of kangoroos from downunder ;-) Austria is most famous for Mozart and the Blue Danube (which is not blue at all). I live, as one quarter of all Austrians in its capital, Vienna, where I am member of the local LUG „LGOe“. Our german-written homepage, which contains also a forum, would be I’m in LEGO since childhood with the common long time of (nearly) not touching a brick until the day, when my boy set foot into our world (2008). Then I started to rebrick my old sets, but in the meantime, with all the new parts that have come with the new sets, I became a MOCer. My favorite subject when MOCing became Microscale, since I don’t have a house and space to keep parts and buildings is rare. When LEGO started the Architecture-Series I decided to turn Austrian buildings into LEGO-Microscale, I usually try to minimalize as small as I can without losing the things that make up the special approach of the original building. Thus I try to keep the proportions but overdo some important details - but you will find out yourself when i post the pictures. Another microscale I started together with another man of my LUG is a Microcaletown called Teensietown, which has indeed a spezial mix of scales but all together it looks quite pretty and it is growing exorbitantly fast. I’m a denier of most modern time tools and have neither accounts on facebook nor flickr. I will share my pics only in this forum or the one of my Austrian LUG. You may have noticed, that English is not my mother’s tongue. When writing in English I use to do it in a sometimes all too poetic style, so please accept the poetic license in my very words. Thanx!
  5. Hey, all. It's been a while. I moved during the summer and my Lego collection sat in a cupboard for a while, so I only just got the bug again. After a Technic scale futuristic jet plane last year, I decided on a more 'traditional' architecture-related project this time around. It's early days but I'm doing a minifig scale medieval cathedral in the European gothic style. My main source of inspiration is the Kolner Dom in Cologne but for obvious reasons I'm having to make a few compromises - even at minifig scale, it would be physically too large to fit in my living room! I hit on the idea of doing it in a 'modular' fashion: minifig scale, with more detail than the commercially-produced Castle-era Lego sets but still smaller and made in sections. I reckon it'll be around a third of the size of, say, Notre Dame or Cologne from a minifig's point of view. Photos so far are on Google Plus...I'll add them to Flickr or something when each phase is completed. So far I've worked out the general floor plan, the cross-section shape of the nave and side aisles and the general shape of the buttresses outside. Apologies if any of the technical terms go over you head - I've had to give myself a crash course in architecture and engineering! The question I have right now is about the side-aisles (Re: the cross-section pic below). Church buildings of that era have a big span across the tall central area, but in the larger ones the lower side aisles are each divided into pairs of arches like this. I'm currently working to a simpler design with the side aisles made up of just one arch each, so I'm torn between a more conventional 'three arches' layout that's easier to build, or a more complicated arrangement of five, as in Cologne or Notre Dame. It's something I need to decide before going any further. Thoughts? Advice? Is this thread even in the right forum?? Anyhow, it's good to be back and feeling inspired to build something again!

  7. For the Techlug Architecture contest devoted to official residences, I choose to build a modern presidential palace : the palace of the Dawn (Palácio da Alvorada) located in Brasilia in Brasil. This for two reasons : first, I found it absolutly great and second, to honour the memory of the famous brasilian architect Oscar Niemeyer who past away nearly one year ago. Oscar Niemeyer is world wide known as being the designer of most of the official buildings of the new capital Brasilia at the end of the 50-th but he was also one of the architect of the ONU headquarter. The first achieved building in Brasilia the 30 june 1958 was this palace of the Dawn located far away from the administrative and politic centre of the city near the Paranoá lake as shown by this aerial view. It became rapidly one icon of the modern brasilian architecture and the symbol of the technical and cultural brasilian progress of the 50-th. To the question about the reason of its name "Dawn", president Kubishek answered : "What is Brasilia else than the new dawn for Brasil ?". The palace of the Dawn is the official residence of the presidential family but he or she works into the Planalto Palace The particular shape of the outside main pilars of the palace has been used into the symbol of the town. These views allow to see its structure with these pilars supporting a flat roof and with it walls of glass. The inside consists into 3 levels. 1. An underground level having a large garage and a movie room. 2. The main level having large rooms (and mirrors as walls) delimited by two large room at both sides. A red ramp gives acces to this main level from the main entrance (note the high contrast between the grey floor at the ground level and the wooden floor of this main level). 3. An upper level consisting mainlyof private appartments splitted by a mezzanine. A bridge, over the road giving acces to the garage, allows to go directly from the palace to a chapel. Front of the building are two water pools separated by the access to the main entrance : the right pool includes a sculture consisting of 2 statues. The backside of the domain includes a large swimming pool and a large park up the border of the lake. This palace is well suited for receiving important people like B. Obama. Sources : http://www.webflakes...cio-da-alvorada http://www.moderndes...r-niemeyer.html The so particular pilars of the building are build using a few parts including ski sticks. My MOC is a reproduction of the palace and the chapel integrating the two pools and the sculpture In order to not have an empty translucide building, I have included the main structure of both upper levels with the two extrem large rooms, two private rooms and the main entrance space with the red ramps and with the mezzanine (the private appartments are suggested by small rooms). This video shows the building steps and this other video shows it from all sides A few pictures of the MOC. The roof can be removed to exhibit the inside. The visitors of ExpoLorraine (9 and 10 novembre) in Nancy could see it in "avant première". To end this presentation, a picture of Oscar Niemeyer walking into the palace. Hope you enjoyed the visit.

    [ MOC ] S Villa

    I am thrilled to know that my entry to the Ani-Com & Games Hong Kong 2015 LEGO Competition was shortlisted! This year, the topic is "Ideal Home (Interior Design)" (weird title with the confusing brackets, I know!), and since I like building houses, I thought I might give it a try this year. The show ended two days ago and while my submission did not get into the top three, I still got 4th in the judge scoring and I am already happy to be on the stage this year with the other awesome builders! My build is called "S Villa" (previously named Box iN during submission), which is my dream home in the brick city. The design is based on the concept of a garden. To me, home should be a place separated from the hustle and bustle of the city. Instead of being trapped inside another building, the occupants probably want to have their own personal outdoor space, meaning a garden. Therefore, the concept is a central garden with rooms arranged around it. Above is the program of the house, with different rooms arranged around the garden. Here is the final look of it, showing its front facade: The center garden is here, with some pebbles forming a loop path: The arrangement of rooms start from the living room, which is directly facing the garden. It is first place I enter when I arrive home, and I want this to be a relaxing place without TV to distract me. Further in is the kitchen and dining area, the latter which extends out to share the same garden view: The opposite side of dining room is the corridor leading to guest toilets and back door, where you can reach the garage. The staircase forms right above the main entrance, and I refuse to use a stacking type of staircase so that the staircase is like a room itself, creating a middle platform as a buffer to the upper private rooms. The black box, which is my studio, is located at the first stop of the staircase. Inside there are my desk and personal theater. Now this is the place I enjoy TV shows and movies. Going further up is the bedroom and lavatory. If you see closely, you will see I put the rooms that require quiet space, ie dining room and bedroom, away from the street, using the staircase circulation as the buffer separation to kill any noise from outside. The bedroom is a simple one, with an extended balcony next to it. My concept of monochrome design comes from the idea that a building can be simple and neutral-colored so that people focus on its form and shapes. All the colors then come from the inside, where people live, because life is colorful. Without us, there can be no color. We, are the colors. The space underneath the black box is recessed in as a garage. I also made a little extention behind it to put the tools for the garage. S Villa is the house for me and my wife, and the name contains the first letters of our names. Originally it was named "Box iN" during the submission since the idea is about the inner garden. With this design, I hope to inspire people that a house can be simple in geometry, and also functional in use. Hope you enjoy this building and its architectural concepts! More photos at:

    WIP: Wilberg Atrium

    About two years since I finished House of Literature in Fredrikstad. My next Architecture-style building is Wilberg Atrium, also from Fredrikstad and by the same architect. 5121 pieces. Almost finished now, just some minor adjustments before I start to order parts. The real building:
  11. Hey! Today I want to present my newest creation. It is the k.u.k. Burgtheater in Vienna. I used about 18.000 bricks and it took me about 150 hours to build this model. This year it is the 150th anniversary of the Vienna Ringstraße. In our LUG many of us decided to build one of the famous buildings from the former Austro-Hungarian Monarchy situated besides the RIngstraße. I chose the Burgtheater as you can see on the pictures below. Hope you enjoy!

  12. Deep under the icy mountains of Marden, a cold planet at the edge of the galaxy, Kawashita Group create a new laboratory for studying the depth of geology... A few minutes before, he had spoken with the board, the CEO in person, Narbilu, and the Second Branch Executive, Mister S, they were really pleased by his work there and looking forward to the experiments that will be carried on. "The CEO is happy by our works, men!" he announces entering the first room: the laboratory was carved in the cold stone of the mountains of Marden, some rooms had been covered with concrete and plastic, others had been left rough. There were laboratories and storage rooms, dorms and rest rooms; the laboratory could house a few dozens of people, from the security personel to the scientist in charge of the experiments. Alexander announcement was welcomed by the satisfied comments of his crew, they had worked hard to prepare everything within the limits set and now it was recognized their effort. Now the laboratory is ready to starts its work... = = = = = = = = = = Here we are with my build for the Tecnology Tree and about Geology! I hope you'll like it! Enjoy!!!
  13. Hi there! Ever since I built the Frauenkirche Dresden last year I was hooked on Architecture scale. This year I wanted to push the limits that this scale creates even further. When I visited friends for their event in Norway I wanted to show something new next to my old church and settled on the Santa Maria della Salute, an iconic church from Venice, Italy. I spent so many summer vacations in Italy and almost every year we would venture into Venice - this church surely left a lasting impression. Santa Maria della Salute, Venice by Markus, auf Flickr This also won me a nomination for Best Small Building at Brickworld 2015 :) We're heading back to Europe today though :( What do you think? Also, any thoughts on the presentation? Best Markus
  14. This '8x8 Vignette' concept started with 'The Dark Knight - Interrogation Scene' vignette, which as based on the #40120 Valentine's Day Dinner and #40121 Painting Easter Eggs. This is loosely base on the #76005 Daily Bugle Showdown set. I didn't want to have the set displayed but the top floor I had to keep as it was the highlight if the set. I have changed the design of the the office and the exterior of the top floor and kept is simple and small as possible as it could be whilst using all the cool stickers used in the building. 'MOC: J Jonah Jameson's Office - 8x8 Vignette' Album: I really hope you enjoyed this MOC; feedback and criticism is much appreciated. Adeel
  15. Hi to all, I have the pleasure to present 3 of my latest MOCs. 3 iconic building of Madrid. ​TORRESPAÑA (PIRULI) Torrespaña (literally "Spain Tower") is a 231 m (757.87 ft) steel-and-concrete television tower located in Madrid, Spain. National terrestrial television channels RTVE, Telecinco andAntena 3, as well as the autonomic channel Telemadrid, along with a few radio stations, broadcast from the tower. The tower was built in 1982, commemorating the FIFA World Cup celebrated in Spain that year. The building was administered by RTVE until 1989, when control over radio and television emissions in Spanish territory was given to Retevisión. It is not open for tourists. The Torrespaña tower is generally known in Madrid as the "Pirulí", given the similarity between the tower and a particular type of lollipop of conical shape very popular in Spain in the eighties. It is located in a depression, next to the M30 highway. Most of central Madrid lies to the W and NW. According to Google Earth, the terrain altitude at the site is 660 m (2,170 ft) whereas about 1 km (3,280.8 ft) to the NW it is about 700 m (2,296.6 ft) and rises to 720 m (2,360 ft) even further north. Add about 20–30 m (66–98 ft) height for the average building and the base of the tower is about 60 to 90 m (200 to 300 ft) below the rooftops in that area. The top of the tower is directly visible from most rooftops of Madrid, but it initially was thought and built to enhance television coverage in Southern Madrid. All pictures in full resolution TORRE PICASSO Torre Picasso (Picasso Tower) is a skyscraper in Madrid, Spain designed by Minoru Yamasaki. From 1988 until 2007 it was the tallest building in Madrid, measuring 515 ft (157 m) and with 43 floors. Torre Picasso is located next to the Pablo Picasso Square, within the commercial complex AZCA along the Paseo de la Castellana. At its opening in 1988, Torre Picasso was surpassing the elder office tower Torre de Madrid. However, it was not Madrid's tallest building, as the television tower Torrespañacompleted in 1982, was higher with its 231 m (757.87 ft). Notable surrounding skyscrapers are Torre Europa, Banco de Bilbao Tower and Windsor Tower, now demolished after a fire. The Torre Picasso was Spain's tallest building until 2001,when it was overtaken by the Gran Hotel Bali in Benidorm, Alicante,the Torre Espacio in 2007,and Torre Caja Madrid, Torre de Cristal and Torre Sacyr Vallehermoso since 2009. All pictures in full resolution ATOCHA STATION Madrid Atocha (Spanish: Estación de Madrid Atocha, also named Madrid Puerta de Atocha) is the largest railway station in Madrid. It is the primary station serving commuter trains (Cercanías), intercity and regional trains from the south, and the AVE high speed trains from Barcelona (Catalonia), Zaragoza (Aragon), Seville (Andalusia) and Valencia(Levante Region). These train services are run by the Spanish national rail company, Renfe. The station is in the Atocha neighborhood of the district of Arganzuela. The original façade faces the Plaza del Emperador Carlos V, a site at which a variety of streets converge, including the Calle de Atocha, Paseo del Prado, Paseo de la Infanta Isabel, Avenida de la Ciudad de Barcelona, Calle de Méndez Álvaro, Paseo de las Delicias, Paseo de Santa María de la Cabeza, and Ronda de Atocha. The Atocha station is really a railway complex, formed by the Madrid Atocha Cercanías and Madrid Puerta de Atocha stations of the Spanish national railways and the Atocha Renfe station of the Madrid underground. At this site, Madrid's first railway station was inaugurated on 9 February 1851 under the name Estación de Mediodía (Atocha-Mediodía is now the name of an area of the Arganzuela district, and means south in old Spanish). After the building was largely destroyed by fire, it was rebuilt and reopened in 1892. The architect for the replacement, in a wrought ironrenewal style was Alberto de Palacio Elissagne, who collaborated with Gustave Eiffel. Engineer Henry Saint James also took part in the project. The name Atocha has become attached to the station because of the nearby basilica dedicated to Our Lady of Atocha. The train platforms were partly covered by a roof in the form of inverted hull with a height of approximately 27 meters and length of 157 meters. The steel and glass roof spreads between two brick flanking buildings. This complex of railway tracks expanded through the years. In 1985, a project of complete remodeling began, based on designs byRafael Moneo. In 1992, the original building was taken out of service as a terminal, and converted into a concourse with shops, cafés, and a nightclub. Like the Orsay Museum in Paris, the concourse has been given a new function, this time a stunning 4,000 m2(43,056 sq ft) covered tropical garden. A modern terminal was also designed by Moneo, and built in adjacent land to serve both the new AVE trains and local commuter lines. The main lines end in the new terminal; commuter train platforms are located underground, at the ingress to a rail tunnel extending northward under the Paseo de la Castellana. The station is served by two Madrid Metro stations, Atocha and Atocha Renfe. The latter was added when the new terminal building was constructed and is directly linked to the railway station.

    MOC: Acropolis in micro

  19. Hello, last year, I have seen the fantastic Flatiron Building in Manhattan: What an impressive building. And I have to say: The high-rise building as an archicture-set is impressive, as well. So, this is my review (german language) of the Lego-Set and pictures of the "original" building - to compare both: Best wishes Andres
  20. Previously I made a MOC modular building, a bank, which has a piece of land on its side waiting for construction. It was to be a restaurant and finally it is done! It is not a big one as it only takes half of the 32x32 plate, but it contains what all the Lego citizens' needs for food! This building is a break from the typical European style that prevails in the original Lego modular building sets. I think a city should be developing, advancing, and things change including building styles. I tried some new elements here, with a more open façade (basically removing the façade for balconies and setting back the entrance), while taking a cleaner approach on detailing. Quick overview with the bank on its side: Let's go inside now! The entrance on the G/F floor is set back a little for a bar area. This is where people gather at night especially on Fridays! I also try sliding doors for the entrance :) At the entrance, you will see a little fridge next to a green counter. On the other side is a cake rack. In the morning, there will be breads for those who want to grab a quick breakfast. 1/F is a restaurant. Utensils are stored neatly. Someone is celebrating her birthday with friends! Well that's a huge cake! The other half of 1/F is a balcony area for semi-open dining experience. Looks like someone is not pleased when serving a rich man... "Hey that's not the tips I am hoping for..." The top floor is also a restaurant area, with an open grill kitchen. Look at the hood! Now an overview with some of my modular buildings, which are easy to recognize. The building style is a little different but still, to me, harmonious with the others. Hope you all like this creation! Let me know if you have any comment on how I can improve this!

    [MicroMOC] Washburn City

    Washburn Washburn is the US capital city of New Kansas, Kepler System. True to it’s namesake, New Kansas is a fertile farming world from which a wide variety of crops are cultivated and animals raised. Settlements range from small, old fashioned farms to large, mechanised outposts of synchronised machines and technology. Typical Washburn city block, complete with florist, house, bridge and traffic. Washburn is the hub for all manner of activity; business, education and pleasure. It is the port by which New Kansas feeds a large proportion of the Core Worlds. The city is home to several of the top biochemical and veterinary colleges of their kind. A giant spaceport sits on the outskirts of the city, big enough to accommodate the larger interplanetary barges for the transfer of crops and livestock. There is also quite the lively nightlife; most of these bars and cantinas centre around the American Cool Revival trend. They feature music and décor reminiscent of American days gone by. There exists a quiet acrimony the settlers who reside solely within Washburn and the more isolated farmers. The latter consider their city-based fellows stuck-up and pretentious. The former consider the farming population crass and uncultured. Above: a typical Washburn home The city is home to the New Kansas Senator, when she is not involved in democratic discussions back on Earth. Although officially neutral during the Pan-Eurasian War, several of the large farmers sold food to the under-siege Coalitionpopulation of Kepler II. One side of the story paints the farmers as saving the lives of starving children. The reality was that rich agricultural groups made huge profits breaking a neutrality clause set by the government. The US investigation into the food smuggling found no person or organisation culpable is considered a whitewash by the Coalition.
  23. Hello, in March, I have been to Billund and bought an exklusive Billund-Architecture-Set: The "LEGO House" (4000010). Beside the nice building, a fine booklet and a minifigure are included, as well. This is my video review - in German language. But if you have any questions, please feel free to ask me at any time. The "real" Lego House will open in about two years from now. Have you already seen this set or have you visited Billund in the past? Best wishes Andres
  24. Hi everyone! Just thought i'd share my latest Architecture build, in case anyone in here would find it interesting. It's a scale model on Richard Neutras Lovell Health House, a modernist piece from the late 20's, based in California. A house which was also featured in the movie L.A Confidential best wishes -Mat

    Darraor Castle

    Credit for the tree design goes to Brother Steven. This is my second largest build ever at 64x48 (plus the border), and weighing over 21 pounds. It was built over a period of 8 days. There's a full interior, and the castle doors work. Sir Glorfindel attends a feast held at Darraor Castle, a Mitgardian fortress located near the Avalonian border, the feast was supposed to promote diplomatic relations between the two guilds, but not all of the guests seem pleased about this: View from a tower window: Check out all the details here: http://brickbuilt.or...raor-Castle.php Your comments and constructive criticisms are always appreciated
