And that roof just makes me smile :)
Anupehr has been creating some incredible LEGO versions of famous landmarks from around the world. One of her most recent, the Rialto bridge, won ‘Best Architectural Style’ at BrickCon earlier this month. This is one builder to keep an eye on. She has managed to fly under the radar for some time but she has some incredible skills.
Check out the whole set of pictures for more details.
David Frank (aka Fraslund) has been working on a medieval Castle layout for most of the last year and he finally unveiled it at BrickCon. His work was nothing short of breath-taking. The level of detail was stunning and I discovered incredible new details everytime I looked it over. David is definitely a builder to be reckoned with. Take time to examine all of his pictures of this creation, both wide-angle and closeups. You won’t be disappointed.
This window by Projecto Construir is mind-blowing and the level of detail is outstanding. It has been a long time since I have seen a build of this caliber. This creation is absolutely a work of art.
Bruce H., from Classic Castle says, “Projecto Construir is a Portuguese social welfare association that was founded with the support of the University of Oporto. President Romão Santos and an army of volunteers, including local LUG members, set up events at schools, hospitals and other settings where disadvantaged kids take part in large construction projects.” You can check out their homepage or their Facebook page for more information.
Many thanks to Bruce for pointing this out!
Gabriel Thompson (qi_tah) is really building amazing stuff these days. Here is another one of his creations – oriental Teahouse. I admire classic asian architecture, and just love the colors and details on this one.
Dark-Alamez has built us a Chicago street section. Two of the buildings are based on real ones, while the third one is out of his imagination. It took me just a glance at the thumbnail to recognize the city this creation represents. Aside from beautiful buildings my favorite is the Chicago Loop railway segment.
The LEGO Halo group over on Flickr is hosting a contest that challenges LEGO builders to design their own sets to counter the fact that one of LEGO’s competitors has the Halo license.
Théo (Titolian) joins the fray with this fake LEGO Architecture set. It’s an interesting little structure, wonderfully presented and immediately recognizable.
(And please, dear readers, do not suggest — as several on Flickr already have — that this would be a great LEGO CUUSOO project. Ain’t gonna happen…)
I find myself wanting to to grab a café au lait, a good book, and sittng on the patio outside Carson Hart’s French Café. True Carson’s building has no rocket engines, pew-pew lasers or cyborg co-pilots, but the amount of other awesome details more than makes up for it. I have always appreciated the amount of brilliant detail that builders put into such creations, and Carson certainly does have a lot of fantastic finishing touches.
Here are two similar creations built by Softa Rae. Original one is a few years old, while IIIB is just completed. It was build as a commission for some very lucky girl – it will be used as her doll house! Doll and the dogs are the only 3 non-LEGO elements in this build – all other 17.000 are pure LEGO. III and IIIB have some differences, the main one being the color – while III uses sand blue, IIIB is medium blue. Here you can see older one next to her other model, Victorian V.
