  1. This building is a model of one of the buildings that I pass everyday on my way to work and often thought it would be cool to do in Lego. This is created in and Rendered in POV Ray (Native to the software) The other cool features of this software tells me the physical dimensions of the building, how much the model will cost as well as how much the model weighs.
  2. This is my entry into the Architecture category of Marchitecture. It was a very fun challenge to work in the Architecture scale, and see how much of the real building’s detail I could capture. Due to the small scale, it was easy to make revisions, a good thing as it took quite a few experiments to get each area of the Chateau to look how I wanted. More pics on my website. Thanks for looking
  3. Monas is a Local Landmark of Jakarta, Indonesia. Inspired by this Yul Burman Karel’s Monas MOC, but I redesigned it. Monas by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr I actually want to make this model for join this "Local Landmarks contest" in this forum, but the rules state: “All entries are to include only real LEGO. No clone brands, 3rd party parts, or digital entries allowed.”, Sadly, I don’t have all the part that need to create this model, though all the parts are exist in real life. Well, at least this could be an addition to my (digital) creations.
  4. Hi, I'm proud to present you my newest MOC: The Willis Tower (formerly known as "Sears Tower") Facts: Scale: 1:410 Height: 132 cm (52″) Bricks: 16.000 (from which 10.500 are clear 1x1 plates) Planning time: 3 months Building time: 1 month Full tower The base was very challenging. It is not plain but has slopes in different directions, which leads to many complicated levels. There is a lot of SNOT and offset work going on to represent it at this scale Everything was planned in MLCad before I began building More pictures and WIP photos can be seen at my Flickr photostream. - Sebastian
  5. Hello again all. I am trying to see if I can get something going for a potential LEGO Architecture set dedicated to the City of Philadelphia. As such, here is what I have for now: a micro build of City Hall. Some photos for reference: Brief History: Constructed from 1871 to 1901, $24 million. Houses 700 rooms, including the Mayor's office and chambers for criminal justice and municipal judges. The building is topped off by 37 ft, 27-ton bronze statue of William Penn, founder of the City of Philadelphia. All four sides of the tower feature clocks that are 26 ft in diameter. As for the LEGO model, I've posted one in light yellow and the other in phosphorescent white. Any comments/suggestions are welcome.
  6. For the Celebricktion event in Atlanta earlier in October, I decided to build a new Modular for our LUG train layout. So, I built a little fast food joint. Here's the entrance: And right above it, a spacious loft apartment perfect for inner city living: Step inside the restaurant for a bite to eat: Then relax on a fall afternoon on your rooftop garden patio: Inside, the restaurant takes up most of the ground floor: Place your order at the counter: Then sit down to enjoy your meal: The upstairs resident keeps his apartment neat: He can always cook in his modern kitchen if he's not craving burgers from downstairs: After a hard day's work, it's always fun to relax with games and movies: On the top floor, you find the bedroom and bath: Where finally, he gets a good night's sleep in his cozy bed: Thanks for looking! Other photos and larger versions of these can be found in my Flickr album!

    [ MOC ] Modular Disney Store

    The first shop along the main street of V City is a small one with a big name. The new Disney Store offers different products of its several franchises, including PIXAR and Star Wars. The client (of course I am making this up) wants a small modern building, but contains some essence of its brand. Undoubtedly the castle becomes the starting point for my design brainstorming session. My initial idea is a little box with a castle, and I began to break down the important elements from the castle to form the design language. I converted the moat into the planters by the sides of the entrance, and created a frame to signify a portal to the magical worlds. That can be seen from some castles where you will have a big portal at the bridge across the moat. The facade profile of the building comes from the two side towers above, and I only extracted the cut-corner shape. This slightly chamfered entrance also helps the portal stand out better. The building interior is simple, and is divided into several themes. First it is the Star Wars zone, where guests can find a lot of Star Wars toy and apparels. You can also design your own lightsaber at the “Build Your Own Lightsaber” shelf, and I made reference from the existing shops in Disneyland. Another side is the traditional Disney products, from traditional Disney stories. You can find girl items and dolls (you may ask about teddy bear, and yes Disney has one called Duffy and Shelliemay!), and also some cups and bottles. The deco is simple with wood planks, with the famous clock of Cinderella. Up the stairs will be 1/F, where you are greeted by the Toy Story shelf and the Lightyear figure. You can try the 3-eye Alien headpiece! Turning around is the much anticipated Frozen shelf, with all the icy items you can purchase! See that girl who is in love with the Snowgie cushions? You can also meet Elsa, Anna and Olaf and take pictures with them! Then you will see the little food corner, facing the staircase to the roof top. I spent quite some time to work out the fixtures, and I am happy that they look very much like the real thing inside Disneyland. The roof is a little green playground for kids, and you can meet the two iconic characters of Disney, Mickey and Minnie! Kids are queuing up to take great pictures with them, and later you will see even more other characters around the year. While I can design a simple hinged door on the rooftop, I created this version so that the panel can be folded up once more to avoid visual intrusion (if it is one big panel, it will stand up and be seen behind the tower on the front elevation! Not good!) Of course, I need a photo with my wife, Mickey and Minnie! Let's have a group photo, all the Disney characters with the shop! (okay, Buzz forgot to come out as he is still inside on the 1/F!) Hope you all enjoy it!
  8. Hi guys, Here's my latest MOC - Grand Central Terminal! Hope you enjoy the detail jam-packed into this MOC. It's up on Ideas. Dozens of photos and a time lapse video here Grand Central Terminal on IDEAS. PS - Why is the max total size for an image upload set at 100KB??? At that limit, I can barely get one thumbnail in.

    MOC: Attic

    I reckon I've come up with a new building technique using a 30134 - Staircase 7x4x6 as rafters. I apologise in advance if this technique has been posted before. The advantages of using a 30134 - Staircase 7x4x6 piece in this context is allowing the roof to be structurally stronger and they also represent the wooden rafters that go diagonally across a typical roof.

  10. High in the mountains sits a small temple above a serene lake. Disturbed only by the sound of the falls, the mountain is home to a peaceful tribe of monks. This is a very large piece that I've worked on for several months now. See the flickr for more information: Other side and overview shots:
  11. The completion of the Elbe Philharmonic Hall in Hamburg was celebrated with a big opening concert and light show just a few days ago on January 11. Reason enough for me to design a small architecture style LEGO model (262 parts)! The building by Herzog & de Meuron is 108m high and unifies old and new architecture with a modern construction on top of an old warehouse brick building. It includes a concert hall, apartments and a hotel. It is build on a small peninsula of the Elbe River and is considered to be one of the largest and most acoustically advanced concert halls in the world. You can download the PDF instructions (for free) to build this model on my website Hope you like it!

    [MOC] City apartment block

    Happy Holidays Everyone! My town has finally got what it was missing, a more habitable apartment complex that has some green space (a rarity due to a severe land shortage problem). Ending the long tradition of single-room flats the new spacious units include a mind-boggling 4 rooms. Some even have toilets, although these cost extra. The development consists of 12 apartments, 3 stacks of 4 built one on top of another. Around 1,500 dark tan masonry bricks were required. As these are more expensive than standard bricks some believe they were intentionally used to funnel state aid to mining companies although this could be just a conspiracy theory. Despite the obvious design improvements however most of my minifigs are not happy at all which is not a surprise really as they can’t afford one. The few that can are also not happy do to bad choices when picking friends. Hope you like the build. David Edit: it didn't take long for my 2 year old daughter to dip her hand into interior decorating
  13. Hello, My name is Danny, build in 1977 and i live in Belgium. I've been lurking for some years now on Eurobricks, mostly in the Star Wars and Sci-Fi sections, and everyday I check the frontpage for news. When I was young I loved playing with Lego, it stopped when I grew up. Three years ago I rediscovered Lego when I bought toys for my son. And in 2014 I bougth my first set, the Imperial Star Destroyer (75055), since then I'm collecting Star Wars, classic space sets, some of the architecture sets and Lego Idea's sets. I have a soft spot for the old garage sets from the 50s -60s, I'm collecting those old garage parts and building replica's and moc's with them. Groeten, Danny
  14. Another of my Micropolis modules is this 32*32 block with three appartmentbuildings and a mixed use building. At it's ground level, you will find a toy store - THE place to buy your bricks . The module will be on display at LEGO Fan Weekend 2014, as a part of my Micropolis layout.

    Winter Village: Corner Store

    Here's my entry for the Winter Village contest! I hope you guys like it! Happy Holidays!!!! (Also, just as a little comment: I'm from Southern California where there is no snow. This is my depiction of a not so white Christmas!) Winter Village: Corner Store by Carson Hart, on Flickr
  16. I am really excited that the Brick Loot team gave me an opportunity to design a model which was included in the November Brick Loot box. I jumped at the chance to expand on the narrative I started with my book 'The LEGO Architect' by creating a new model that explores a recent trend in Architecture.LEGO Architecture model in November 2016 Brick Loot subscription.The model I designed explores contemporary architecture trends, emphasizing projecting volumes, angular shapes, glass, and mixed materials. I call the model “@ Home”, because the front facade has a curving yellow shape that looks like an “@” sign.Detailed building instructions(A video of the build steps is available at Youtube: )You will find more information about the model, instructions, videos, and photos of early prototypes that I created along the way at: Thanks,Tom Alphin, Author 'The LEGO Architect'
  17. Hi, I'm new here, but a LEGO fan my whole life. I know this topic is a bit sensitive - let me make it clear that this is done in complete respect and honor of those who were lost on 9/11, and that if LEGO were to ever release such a set, they should donate some proceeds to the families of the victims. In any case, I have decided to dip my toe into the world of "serious" building. I've got 100,000 LEGO bricks scattered around my house, but about 99,000 of them are useless for "serious" building because they're highly specialized parts from stuff like UFO, Exploriens, Insectoids, etc. So I decided for my first serious project I'd use LEGO's Pick-a-Brick feature. I thought up my idea for this project in my mind and then ordered the pieces, so aside from two pieces, this is all from the Pick-a-Brick order. My project was to recreate the original World Trade Center as an Architecture-scale set, so I wanted to recreate the narrow windows. Using inspiration from other bigger, better renditions of the WTC, I decided to go with the radiator grilles for the windows. However, I ran into problems when I failed to realize that the bricks with knobs do not connect to each other vertically! Thus the model you see below has an entire stack of pieces with knobs pointed inward, completely useless and easily replaceable by normal 1x2 bricks. My miscalculation completely changed everything, but I got essentially what I wanted. Since the knob pieces do not connect vertically (and I miscalculated that they would), there's a gap in between each "floor" of windows. I hate the gaps and they bother me so bad, but at this point I'd have to completely rethink the model if I was to find a way to fix them. The two bigger gaps are intentional, but the smaller ones are not. I did not include the smaller buildings of the WTC but I may add them later. The dot you see is supposed to be "The Sphere," the statue at the bottom of the WTC which somehow survived the attacks. Without further ado, here is the link to view the pics. I'm terrible at pics, so you'll see anime stuff in the background! LEGO Architecture - World Trade Center I welcome constructive criticism. Please give your thoughts, especially any on how to fix the gap problem. I'm not a LEGO newbie but I didn't realize that the knobs do not connect vertically. A rookie mistake, I guess. Thoughts on scale, height, width, etc. especially the antenna, are helpful. Thank you!
  18. For a few months I've been hooked to the Architecture Series, being able to collect the several of the recent official sets, bricklinking others and, most of all, skimming the web for Architecture MOCs of places I've been. That's how I've came across Eiffleman's Lego Ideas entry ( with a suitably scaled Arc de Triomphe: Upon seeing it I was hellbent of recreating this landmark and luckily Eiffleman was kind enough to provide enough details to allow "easy" reverse engineering. The result, a very eye catching ~500 piece Architecture MOC with several interesting tricks up it's sleave, especially in the pedestals and the arched ceeling made of 1x1 tiles. I had a blast getting to the "how did he do it" and I'm still rounding up some edges (namely the bas-reliefs in the mid section), but I'm quite happy with the overall look I was able to recreate, even though, unfortunately, some of the pieces Eiffleman uses do not exist in the indicated pieces (namely the statues). Here are some pics of the main stages of the build: I hope some of you enjoy this Eiffleman's MOC as much as I did (and do check another Eiffleman's Arc du Triomphe, in a larger scale).
  19. The official LEGO Architecture skyline sets are really nice but there are so few of them and so many cities! So I designed my own skyline set for the city of Munich. It features several landmark buildings of the town, namely (from left to right) the Gothic Frauenkirche (Cathedral), the neo-Gothic New Town Hall (with the Marian column and the Fish Fountain in front of it), St. Peter's Church, Siegestor (Victory Gate), the 291m high Olympic Tower and the BMW Headquarters.

    [MOC] Bauhaus Modular Building

    Hi, I'm new around here :) Having rediscovered LEGO a year ago, I quickly became interested in the modular series; also to give it a shot myself, which resulted in my first modular style MOC Bauhaus Modular The idea was to incorporate commercial and residential space into one building, hence the small grocery store / deli on one side, and access to the residential area on the other. Fully furbished including a living room, a kitchen, a terrace and a rooftop. Some close up shots: Floor by floor view: All in all a great experience, even though I had to apply some significant changes to my original LDD design to improve stability - especially on the floors. I'm still not completely happy with a couple of design choices/flaws (like the small gap between the horizontal arches and the building walls) - still learning! :)

  22. Imagine you walk in a gorge with steep cliffs of orangy rock towering above you. You can't see that far ahead of you, until suddenly the gorge widens and you're bemused by a cliff that looks a bit different. It's the same rock as everywhere else, but it is smooth, shaped into a beautiful composition of columns, frontons, statues. Petra is an amazing place. I have yet to see it with my own eyes, but just reading about fills you with wonder. Even a walk on Street View is an awesome experience. It's no wonder that Petra belongs to the seven modern wonders of the world. It houses many extraordinary buildings dating back almost two millennia ago. The most famous and one of the best conserved of all of these buildings is Al-Khazneh, the Treasury. It's monumental yet elegant, beautifully refined between the rough rocks. A true gem, especially when lit by candles at night. Recreating a wonder of the world with bricks definitely is no easy feat. Capturing it on a 8x8 footprint is even harder. It gets worse still if you can only use classic bricks, so no Technic or minifig-related parts. The Classic contest on Rebrick definitely pushed me, but I'm happy with the result. On an 8x8 base and with no Technic or minifig pieces in sight I recreated Al-Khazneh, complete with decorated columns, fronton, monumental gate and remnants of statues. The only thing I couldn't quite cram in was the Holy Grail. [MOC] The Treasury of Petra by Bert Van Raemdonck, on Flickr The antenna pieces was what got me started. From there on, it was getting the most out of classic bricks. I recently built the Architecture Brandenburg gate, and that was what really gave me inspiration to participate in this contest. I was intrigued how that set manages to convey all of the necessary detail with just basic bricks, employing them to shape the building rather than to depict anecdotic details. It drove me to work with a lot of offsets to get the most out of the system. It was something completely different than my previous build, in which the objective was to use as many exotic parts as possible to depict details. The result is a seven wide building with a lot of half-stud offsets and trickery to fill the holes in between the sports of the fences on the top. A result with a back that isn't entirely flat because I'm not a magician. But a result which in my opinion really feels like the original. [MOC] The Treasury of Petra - Visitor perspective by Bert Van Raemdonck, on Flickr One of the hard things to get right when depicting anything from Petra, is the color. The color is just so distinct and part of the atmosphere of the place, but not well matched to a LEGO color. I went with the common solution of using tan bricks, but put a orangy/reddish light on it all to give it the sense of desert mystery in the morning. [MOC] The Treasury of Petra - Desk perspective by Bert Van Raemdonck, on Flickr I had a blast building this and learning more about the wonderful place that is Petra. I loved the refreshment of getting everything I could out of the system. It meant not using gears for extra details on the dome or using some minifig accessory as broken statue, but I learned that the coherence of the build only benefits from it, especially at such a scale. I doubt that the creation would be better if I were allowed to use all kinds of bricks. So thanks Rebrick for hosting this contest. And thanks to all of you for taking a look at my 266 part creation! As always, the digital file is available here and you can find it on Rebrickable to make your life easier if you'd like to build it. Thanks again, and have a dreamy day!

    [ MOC ] Modern Fire Brigade

    Hi everyone! I got this interesting idea of a fire station some time ago, and built this in two weeks, the fastest building I have done so far. I have no intention to get the now-expensive 10197 Fire Brigade, which doesn't really appeal to me. However, I am thinking, if I am to build a fire station, what design should it be? All fire stations have the distinctive feature of the big gates for fire trucks and the walls that separate them, no matter what the buildings look like. I took that idea, and thought about extending these bays to the second storey. At the same time, what if the interior walls grow so big that they grow outside of the facade walls? And so I turned the sketches into real thing. I choose dark red as it is less prominent than bright red, giving a more sophisticated color scheme for the city. Inside, you have everything a normal fire station would have: parking bays and equipment racks on the ground floor: Captain talking to the staff... On the second floor, there are pantry, resting room and toilet on the top. There is even a ping-pong table for the firemen! "Hey why are you two playing table tennis on the street, huh?" One of the play features here is the light. I put the red light brick at the corner and so when there is alarm, you can light it up and the firemen will be ready to go! I hope you like this modern building design, thanks!
  24. I was curious to know what the old LEGO Architecture Big Ben set (21013) would look like with the new roman numeral clock faces introduced in Disney Castle (71040), so I placed a Bricklink order. For the curious, here is the result: One could certainly wish for a more appropriate base color than reddish brown, but on the whole I think it's an improvement!

    Hogwarts Castle (Lego Architecture)

    Hi everyone! There's a contest going on over at the German forum Imperium der Steine challenging us to build our own Architecture style models. There are three categories, the first two being Skylines and Actual Buildings but for the third one we are to build fictional skylines or buildings! As I am a big Harry Potter fan Hogwarts was the first thing I could think of. Lego Architecture: Hogwarts Castle by Kit Bricksto, on Flickr I am really happy with how it turned out but I'd love to hear your opinions and I am of course open to criticism too!
