  1. Been a Lego fan since my younger days. I have a background in Industrial Design, worked in lighting and the commercial furniture industry for about 15 years. Purchased Lego Architecture Studio 4 years ago, while on holiday in New York. A lot of sets don't make their way downunder to New Zealand. Expanded the 'white bricks' with the help of a local Bricklink seller, enjoyed constructing a variety of architectural buildings. I have had a renewed interest in Lego Technic sets since my 7 year old daughter showed an interest in a Lego Technic Excavator 42006 that I had sitting in a bookcase. So we purchased and jointly built the Claas Xerion Tractor 42054, she enjoys seeing the mechanical side of builds come together. We have since brought the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, built it in it's standard form. Then went all out with modifications, the first being a right-hand conversion (we drive on the left-hand side of the road in New Zealand). Earlier in the year the Mack Anthem was added to the collection and we have just ordered the Bugatti Chiron, due in New Zealand in August at NZD$649.99! Looking forward to building another big car and following some of the modifications on Eurobricks. Cheers.

    [MOC] Architecture Skylines - Budapest, Hungary

    A few months ago, I built an LDD MOC of the Hungarian Parliament building. That was originally part of a Budapest Skylines MOC I was working on for a long time, but the sizes of the buildings was too big. Since then I abandoned the project until the announcement of the Dream Skylines contest at Rebrick. Since then I have been working at this, and I am quite proud of it. So without further ado... Being the city I grew up in, Budapest is very close to my heart, which is the point of the Rebrick contest. As a child, I traveled to so many parts of the city, and being great with maps, I learned to know the city better than most people. Even when I went to live in Chicago and London for extended periods of time, I can recall a mental map of Budapest and its notable places so well that I can draw and build places from memory. The most iconic buildings and monuments of Budapest were so tough to put in a 8x36 stud Skylines model for several reasons. One, there are simply too many wonderful buildings that are of worldwide renown. I had to leave out several places, such as St. Stephen's Cathedral, Fisherman's Bastion and Matthias Church, the Hungarian State Opera, and Heroes' Square. The other reason is that whereas the skylines of many cities are made up of tall, towering structures such as skyscrapers, the buildings of Budapest are on the low, horizontal side. There can not be any building taller than the Parliament and St. Stephen's Cathedral, both being 96 meters. That number signifies 896, the year in which Magyars settled down into the area which then became the Hungarian Kingdom. These two buildings being the tallest in the entire city represents church and state at equal levels, both figuratively and literally. The only way other buildings can be taller is by being situated on top of hills, which are common on the western, or the Buda side of the city. The Citadel on Gellért Hill and the Buda Castle are examples of this, both looking over the Danube and being a prominent part of Budapest's vista. The Parliament may seem to share similar elements to my previous MOC, but in fact is a completely new build with different building techniques. This is the part of the whole model with which I struggled with the most. I redesigned it at least 20 times to get the version which finally satisfied my perfectionism. I had to make this structure small enough to not lose all the detail that its real life counterpart is decorated with. The Széchényi Chain Bridge, while I admit is a bit oversized, is something which I just could not leave out of this model. It is probably the most iconic structure in perhaps all of Budapest. Here is the entry on the Rebrick contest. Unfortunately the moderators would not let me use these pics that you see here. The blueprint papers may be acceptable, but perhaps the black and white brick outline is doing too much. So instead I had to use raw LDD screenshots, which I now admit, are a bit underwhelming. If you are curious about building techniques and details, don't be scared to ask! But I will not share instructions, since it would be hard to build this model, since many pieces are not available in these colors. Unless you want to upset the purists and paint a BB-8 head sand green...

    [LDD MOC] Parliament of Hungary - Architecture

    I present to you the Hungarian Parliament building in Budapest in the style of LEGO Architecture! I have always been a fan of LEGO Architecture and recently its Skylines series has sparked my inspiration. I began messing around on LDD, trying to create a Skylines MOC of my hometown Budapest. It is very difficult because of the city's architectural landmarks (the Parliament, Buda Castle, the Chain Bridge), and also the small scale. This MOC of the Parliament was originally a part of that, which is why only the "front" has been built. (just pretend the 2x3 plates are 2x3 tiles, which are not available in LDD yet) I plan on finishing this build properly - to have it include the "backside" as well. So far it consists of 341 bricks, which is reasonable for a LEGO Architecture set. There are some complicated SNOT techniques hidden inside the building. I am not fully satisfied with this MOC. It was really complicated to get this many details into such a small scale, and I'm not an expert builder. I'm still not happy with the dome. I'll be improving on this MOC, just wanted to get some reactions first. If any of you have suggestions, let me know! I'd be more than happy to take your advice! More pictures of the MOC here

    MOC: Selimiye Mosque

    Built in LDD, rendered in POV-ray. I am planning to buy the bricks to build the real thing in the future.
  5. Hello Everybody! About 2,5 years ago I created my last (classical) LEGO Architecture model. Inspired by the inclusion of my MetLife Building model in Mike Doyle's Beautiful LEGO 2, I finally executed another architecture MOC. For sure the great reference of Spencer_R was an inspiration as well. Here is my execution of Chicago's Lake Point Tower: Find more pictures on my flickr photostream and feel free to leave your comments! Thx & so long, Jens
