  1. Hello everybody, I would like to present you my first ever architecture style MOC, that was built for our LUG's forum Architecture competition. It's called Whydooshna Metropolis, but more on that weird name later. First some shots... The biggest challenge was to find good enough amount of bricks to finish a building, as most of my inventory consists of Technic parts. I tried to use some fancy techniques but only manged to do some snot and double-oriented plates in the base plate... Regarding the buildings, I immediately decided to make fictitious skyscrapers, as it is hard enough as it is and I really admire those who are able to reproduce real buildings in such small details. Now about that weird name: Whydooshna is read in English the same as we pronounce my home time in our dialect. It is correctly written Ajdovščina, but we call it Wajdušna and if I want it to sound like we say it in English... it became Whydooshna My fellow countrymen are also fond of a joke, because we say W instead A in front of our town's name: Name three places that start with "W". -Wimbledon, Washington and Wajdušna (Whydooshna) I know... not that funny, but I guess everyone has a not-so-funny joke up his sleeve. Anyway, I hope you like my Metropolis, I apologise for the photos not being of the finest quality. Thank you for your attention and constructive criticism. I put below some more details about the creation... Best regards! Miha

    MOC: Corporate Plaza

    Hey guys, Here's the third skyscraper in Wasabi District: Corporate Plaza! At just over 3 feet tall and over 5000 pieces, this 10-storey building is the first office skyscraper in Wasabi District! Yes, it's smaller than my previous buildings, but I finished it in 3 months, a record time for me finishing anything larger than a car! Granted, it's also a pretty basic design, one expected of modern, run-of-the-mill office skyscrapers. Interior shots should be coming up soon. Please, let me know what you guys think! In the meantime, you know what to do if you want to see more pics, check My flickr account for more shots. Check my Instagram account for more WIP pics of the skyscraper, as well as the general WIP status of Wasabi District. Thanks for looking!

    MOC: 505 Wasabi (Skyscraper)

    More than 42 inches tall, More than 6000 pieces, this hip, modern apartment skyscraper is my second tallest and second biggest MOC, located in the heart of Wasabi District. 505 WASABI Includes amenities such as a rooftop swimming pool up top and Wasabi District's first Dunkin Donuts. (Competitor to my Starbucks!) More interior pics coming soon, I'll keep you guys posted! But for now, enjoy the pics, and let me know what you guys think. Thanks for looking!
  4. Hello, I'm proud to present to you my newest MOC, Willis Tower, formerly Sears Tower, at a 1:400 scale. Pieces - 23,037 Height - 131 Centimetres (51.4") My take on the iconic Willis Tower, formerly Sears Tower. The structure of the tower itself is relatively simple as it is just the same four patterns repeated. That said, The base more than made up for the tower's lack of complexity. Featuring sloped roads and split level entrances it took a lot of trial and error and of course, time, to get to this result. I am really quite happy with how this model turned out. It was worth all the effort. I cannot wait to try my hand at more skyscrapers in the future. The Willis Tower is a 110-story 1,450-foot (442.1 m) skyscraper in Chicago, Illinois At completion in 1973, it surpassed the World Trade Center in New York City to become the tallest building in the world, a title that it held for nearly 25 years; it was also the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere for 41 years, until the new One World Trade Center surpassed it in 2014. While it held the title of "Tallest Office Building" until 2014, it lost the title of "Tallest Man-Made Structure" after only 3 years. The CN Tower in Toronto, which serves as a communications tower, took over the title in 1976. The Willis Tower is considered a seminal achievement for architect Fazlur Rahman Khan. It is currently the third-tallest building in the United States and the Western Hemisphere – and the 23rd tallest in the world. Each year, more than one million people visit its observation deck, the highest in the United States, making it one of Chicago's most popular tourist destinations. The structure was renamed in 2009 by the Willis Group as a term of its lease. More pictures can be found on my Flickr, -TJ
  5. Here it is, my newest model, the Woolworth Building. The Woolworth Building is an early American skyscraper located in Manhattan, New York City. Designed by architect Cass Gilbert, it was the tallest building in the world from 1913 to 1930, with a height of 792 feet (241 m). Located in Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood, The 60-story structure consists of a 30-story tower situated atop a 30-story base. Its facade is mostly decorated with terracotta (though the lower portions are limestone) and contains thousands of windows. The skyscraper was originally conceived by F. W. Woolworth, the founder of a brand of popular five-and-ten-cent stores, as a headquarters for his company. Woolworth planned the skyscraper jointly with the Irving National Exchange Bank, which also agreed to use the structure as its headquarters. Construction started in 1910, and it was completed two years later. The Woolworth Building underwent several changes throughout its history. The top thirty floors, formerly used as office space, were sold to a developer in 2012 and subsequently converted into residences. The remainder of the building remains in use by office and commercial tenants. This model stands at 63cm tall and contains ~8,500 pieces, built at a 1:400 scale. There is a lot of techniques I had to come up with to be able to get all of the details in the façade and the roof. The details of the Woolworth Building are so intricate that it would be impossible to include everything at this scale but I tried my best to make it work. Overall, I'm really happy with the way it has turned out and I can't wait to get started on my next build.... More pictures can be found on my flickr:
  6. Hi everybody, recently I finished my "Friends Central Perk" MOC building and now I like to share some impressions with you. The building is completely modular and equipped with interior. It consists of the Central Perk cafe in the first floor, a bowling alley on the second floor, three floors of labs (two fictional and one realistic) and one apartment at the top. For more details you can have a look at my YouTube channel. I hope you like it :)
  7. India Mill Chimney - Darwen, Lancashire India Mill chimney was the tallest and most expensive in England when it was completed in 1867. India Mill Chimney stands 303' in Darwen, Lancashire. The Lego version stands 5'6½". Back then, mill owners had more money than they knew what to do with ... so when they built their new mill, they'd want it build with fancier brickwork, a taller tower, etc, than the mill owned by another guy in the next town. This means that many of those old buildings were great architectural works of art. Many were demolished in the 1960s and 1970s, but fortunately not all were. The ones that remain are now listed buildings. India Mill Tower is a Grade II* listed building. This building had its debut at the Amherst Railway Show in West Springfield MA on Jan 30-31, 2016. This rendition of India Mill Chimney in Lego is the latest in my series of Real Life buildings. Detailed view of top: Close-up of the upper section showing detail in Lego & real-life. Note the bare brick top. When originally built, there was about 20 tons of ornate wrought-iron atop to crown the building nicely. This was removed during World War II to be melted down (along with railings from houses, parks and other sources) to be used in the war effort. My rendering brings a semblance of this ironwork back! View of base & a perspective from bottom looking up: Enjoy!

    [MOC] Boston Custom House

    The small Custom House was built in 1850 in the neoclassical style right on the Boston Harbor to inspect goods on ships that were docked there. In 1915 a 32-floor tower was erected on top of it, and became Boston's first skyscraper at 151 meters tall. This model is built in 1:550 scale, the smallest scale where I could incorporate the tower's many details. I originally wanted to build this in 1:650 scale but I couldn't find a way to do the three columns of windows within a 2-studs width. Built in, rendered with Mecabricks and Blender
  10. Hi All, Long time builder first, time poster here with a bit of a technical question regarding construction minifig scale buildings. I wish to build a triangle shaped modular scale or 48x48 sized building but have been stumped with figuring out the brick geometry using LDD and actual bricks have failed to give me a consistently straight equilateral or isosceles type triangle shape. The only building I know was from from Jangbricks on Youtube. For reference of my Lego CV : Any thoughts or remarks about triangular buildings would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Berl

    Wasabi District 2017

    Hey guys! Have you been following wooootles on Flickr? Or @wooootles on Instagram? Well, you guys should. Something big is coming to Wasabi District. I have been updating my progress log. Check it out! Full build coming soon!
  13. 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

    MOC: Azure One Hotel & Suites

    Here's my latest creation, something I've always wanted to do since I was... 8 years old? I'm getting it ready right for Brickworld 2016. With 18 stories, measuring over 6 feet tall and more than 9,000 bricks, this is by far my largest creation. Since it's an absolute hassle to move around, the interior shots will come in later (though you might have seen a few already in my WIP thread). But for now, enjoy the exterior shots. Stay tuned for the interior shots! And this won't be the last skyscraper in the Wasabi District; I'm already planning a second tower adjacent to the One Azure!
  15. Finally done! 6 months ago I started this project hoping it would meet expectations. Like any large project it was a real roller coaster but a great build in the end. Building process was classic: Stage 1) This is going to be awesome Stage 2) Bricklink, BRICKLINK, BRICKLINK!!! Stage 3) Oh crap... what have I gotten myself into Stage 4) Rethink. Develop methodical plan Stage 5) Build, build, build Stage 6) Yipee!!! Done High res photos on flickr Photos of the build over time: The challenge here was to divide the project up such that it would fit through doors. The foundation is built on a thin sheet of plywood with 1/4" strips on the back to provide some rigidity. Here you can see two panels lined up next to each other including the grid I used to help keep me oriented to the space. I used several different online programs to convert the mosaic to bricks to help with the anchor points. In the end I found those programs only useful for the anchor points. Here you can see us moving the completed panels to the final locations. Each panel weighed around 50-60 lbs. The completed project with me in there for scale - roughly 8ft high - 16 ft across Link to video with working lights: and I can't say enough about the value of an awesome electrician!!!

  16. Greetings, fellow Eurobrickers! I'm pleased to present my contest entry, the Great American Tower in my city of Cincinnati, Ohio. It's one of the newest and greenest additions to our skyline. I'll probably repost this after the contest with my own personal thoughts, things I learned about, some of the techniques inside it, self criticism, that sort of thing, but for now, it must stand on it's own. I hope you enjoy it! Some facts about the building courtesy of -- --- If you are interested in green buildings, you can follow the link above for a write up of its certification, but there are also more photos, fact sheets, and features of the building and Queen City Square. So, on to the build and myself. A while back I got the New York skyline set and The LEGO Architect by Tom Alphin and just loved them but haven't really MOCced anything in that scale. But while I love the NY microscale, it doesn't leave a lot of room for details, but in looking back at the older Architecture sets, I settled on the midi-scale? of the LEGO 21018 United Nations Headquarters, so my entry is more in that scale and should be about that size, per contest requirements. Each thumb you can click on for larger photos in Flickr.

    Lego train vs. Lego skyscraper

    Hi all, I was wondering what would happen if a Lego train would crash into a Lego skyscraper. Obviously the skyscraper was built in a way that it had to come down (otherwise it would be too boring ofcourse). Well, here is the result :)
  19. Here's my latest: I.M. Pei's Bank of China Tower in Hong Kong. Roughly 1/650th scale. The tower footprint is only ~10x10 studs. As a bonus, I built a second model as a structural demonstrator to illustrate with color the different internal structural systems used in the MOC.
  20. Its a famous old skyscraper in Ljubljana (Slovenia). At the time it was the biggest skyscraper in Europe, 1933. My english isnt so good, so read about it here: I tried to capture it as good as possible with the number of bricks i had. It was hard, so there is few minifig scale things around it to make it more playable or interesting for an eye. So i think this is the plce for moc insteed of City forums? More photos and details:
