My fifth modular building had to be a corner one, and the style I strongly wanted to replicated was Art Nouveau. My first attempt, a sand red building with quite monotonous details, featured some of the typical elements of Art Nouveau, but it didn't convince me at all, so I came up with this design. I also wanted to use a new colour palette and, inspired by Gaudi's brickworks, I made a sort of "pastel mosaic" on the facade. In addition, I wanted to use gold with black, which is a fairly common combination in architecture. The ground floor is a minerals shop (whose owner is a secret alchemist who finally found the ultimate formula to convert all metals into gold- which he actually sells ), while the first floor is an architecture studio with glass skylights in a copper frame. Hope you like it!
This is posted before Block I for this is newer and the photographies of this one is better - being only 64x96 studs I was able to rotate it in the studio. Now. This is a block of early 1900s modular houses. They are not built with LEGO's standards, they're bigger and have no interiors (nor inner walls, floors and so on). Goal was to create interesting and impressive outer forms of buildings. Grand Hotel Masaryk is inspired by Grand Hotel Europe in Prague. Due to heavy use of SNOT, the construction id rather complex, but sturdy nonetheless. Bright colours create contrast with the neighbours. Olofslott begin with idea to build a larger building on 45 degree angle. There is a large tower with a glass dome and various bays to create interesting shape. It is inspired by Olofsborg house in Katajanokka, Helsinki, and Imatra State Hotel, two masterpieces of Finnish Art Nouveau. House of the Brick Wall is inspired by National Museum of Finland. The curved wall has more modern feel on it. The curved roof was very tricky bit to build. Louhi represents Finnish Squared Rubble using natural stone national romantiscm. It is inspired by Old Poli on Lönnrotinkatu, Helsinki, and Tampere Cathedral in my hometown. I was curious wether people would like the bare plate walls or not - I think they're quite close to the look I was trying to achieve. The rope bridge gateway was there from the beginning. Lots of talk and some extra shots on the blog Cyclopic Bricks. Thanks for watching! Build on!
Hey everyone, I would like to present my sixth modular building: A modular casino. Inspired by an art nouveau building on the outside, the inside features three levels where my minifigs can spend all of their hard earned studs. The lowest level features a roulette table where the guy who looked quite confident before entering the casino seems to have a hard time. Moreover you can relax at a bar or exchange money for chips. The staircase is detachable for easy access to the vault room. The middle level features slot machines and blackjack tables. On the top level you can play no limit hold em poker against a variety of other players. The manager's office is also located here. Statistics Parts: 4880 Build time: around 45h within LDD and 8h with real bricks Bricklink orders: 13 Below you can find a selection of images. All of them can be viewed here: http://www.kawano.de...ino/casino.html Again a building instruction is available for purchase for those who would like to build it themselves!
hoopoe posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesI’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.
