  1. I'm working on a design a week in the micropolis scale and hopefully I will be able to pick one or two models to display this year at Brickfair VA. Please feel free to comment or suggests edits on the designs as I want to put my best foot forward since this will be my first time displaying at a show. This week I wanted to incorporate the rounds along the top edge of this building and I like the look of the "Wraps" along the front columns and over the roof. I'm not sure about keeping the poles in the back but I didn't have time to really work on that area this weekend. I like building at this scale because it's not a part's hog and it gives a newer builder more exposure to building techniques with out having the entire build designed around that technique. Again please feel free to comment on areas where I can improve. Micropolis Tower _White by BSarles, on Flickr

    [MOC] Mini Modulars

    You might have seen my Mini Modular versions of the official modular buildings. A competition made me think about creating some more Mini Modulars of my own design. This is what I came up with: The Dentist's Office This is the Mini Modular Dentist Office. Located in an old renovated house. The terrace in the back awaits the weekly AW with comfy chairs and a BBQ grill. The Hotel The Corner Block This is a small residential building in some Swedish town. (note the yellow mailbox).

  3. Hi all, long time lurker here but I keep plugging away with my own creations while being inspired by all of yours. This is the first one I've felt comfortable unleashing on the forum. There are aspects of it I'd like to improve, but it's my first big MOC so I committed to finishing it first, and refining it later. Any suggestions regarding the circular stacked roof on the transept portico would be welcome. I deliberated over a brick-built dome versus a hinged, petal affair and went for the latter because I felt it better suited the other techniques on display. Let me know what you think! Oh and because it all got a bit serious. Here's the Cathedral with the Occupy London protest camp for a little colour. Please forgive the banners, I cheated them in photoshop! As per Rufus's suggestion: here's an aerial reference photo for comparison: And this is the book that helped enormously in deciphering the overall structure:
  4. Introduction Hi fellow EB members! In this early spring, Lego takes us to a walk on the 5th avenue, New York. The Guggenheim Museum is worldwide known for its art collection as well as for its architecture. I'm not sure what LEGO thinks of art, but I'm sure they're very interested in architecture, and that's why they released the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum as their new set in the Architecture theme! Thanks to EB LUG Ambassador CopMike and the LEGO CEE Team and Designers for giving me the opportunity to review this set! Set information Name: 21035 Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Theme: LEGO Model Making / Architecture Year: 2017 Pieces: 744 Price: USD 79.99, GBP 64.99, EURO 69.99 Resources: Brickset , BrickLink Packaging The box comes in the usual LEGO Architecture 's black livery, but in an odd almost square shape. It is also quite thick, as there's 744 parts to stuff in. The front shows the full set, proudly standing on blueprints against the black background. On the upper left corner is a rather big LEGO Architecture logo and just under is the name of the set and its location in the world and the set's sizes... Nothing fancy here, just the good old Architecture box! The back of the box has a front shot of the set and a picture of the real buildings and a short comment on the museum in a few languages. Size of the set is also indicated: 190mm wide and 125mm tall. Content of the box The box is almost full, with the instruction booklet and 6 unnumbered bags, one of which contains a brick separator for your collection. Instructions booklet The 167 pages instructions booklet is, as always with Architecture sets, very well done and good looking with the classic black background. There are a lot of nice pictures of the building and its interior, with lots of facts. The instructions are easy to follow and no color errors should be made. You can see here one the many pictures and facts that pop up in the corners of the booklet. You can also see that some steps need quite a bunch of parts, but I reassure you, many steps onl require a single plate! Build First steps passed. If you look closely, you may notice a big change compared to the other sets of the theme... The set makes a great use of the newly released rounded tiles to add details. The build uses lots of 1/2 studs offsets and snot techniques. Continuig with the building... The technique used to achieve the rounded sections is really nice and makes use of many new parts. The finished set in all his glory! My finger hurts of placing all those tan 1x1 tiles! As always there are some spare parts. Interesting parts The set comes with a nice selection of white curved slopes, and among them the rather new 3x2 white curved slope. Three 2x3 white tiles are also present. The set is also at the moment the best source for 1x1 quarter round tiles in light bluish gray. Parts in new or rare colors include the 6x6 round plate in white and black, the 10x10 inverted dish in sand green, the 2x4 wedge plate in sand green, a 3x3 cross plate in tan, a white 1x3x1 panel , and 4 of the new 1x1modified brick with 2 studs on adjacent sides in black! And of course two nice printed tile and curved slope with the museum's name on it. Conclusion Design: 9/10 - A really nice set in the Architecture theme! One of my favorite. Parts: 8/10 - Some very interesting parts in this set, and maybe more variety than other sets of the theme. Build: 8/10 - An interesting build, not too monotonous. Price: 7/10 - At 9.4 cent per part, this set is in the price average of the Architecture theme's sets. Overall: 32/40 (80%) - I really enjoyed building this set! I think it may be one of the best set of the recently released Architecture sets. If you're a fan of the theme, go grab it, you won't regret it.
  5. I have never visited Singapore. But the marina bay area caught my eye when LEGO launched the Marina Bay Sands Architecture set. Som many fascinating buildings and landmarks in this city! I have a personal connection to this city. My employee has an office there. Maybe I'll visit them some day :) This is my entry for Marchitecture 2017 - Categpory 2: City Skyline Reference images (from left): Gardens by the Bay ArtScience Museum Marina Bay Sands Marina Boulevard Financial Centre Singapore Flyer The Merlion Download LXF here (The new macaroni tiles are not in LDD yet so I had to leave them out. Also, the lipstick doesn't quite fit into the Merlion in LDD, but works with real bricks)
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  13. 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.

  15. 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:
  16. 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.

    [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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  21. 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'
  22. 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!
  23. 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).
  24. 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! :)
