Shinmizu Village

Some of the best builders are the ones who are constantly trying to push the envelope of what LEGO can do. And arguably, some of the best builds are a tale of two parts. When you get two great builders together, there is no telling what innovative works of art they might come up with. Shinmizu Village by the brother-sister duo of Geneva (Kai NRG/Geneva) and Isaiah (Robert4168/Garmedon)is a great example of such a creation. At first glance, it’s a beautiful little village on a cliff. But there is more to the story! According to the builders, it’s a mash-up between Venice and Japanese design. And apparently, achieving the angles of the layout was quite a feat!

Geneva did the left half and Isaiah did the right. According to both builders, it was Geneva who had the more difficult job, designing those contrasting angles between the landscape and buildings.

She also used some fun building techniques to create the uniquely inspired architecture. Yes, those are 1×1 round tiles on the roof in the background.

The rock work truly is one of the best parts. It’s great how the build also comes to life and tells a story with the placement of the characters, waterfalls, and even the little hidden cave.

The two sides fit together pretty seamlessly. Isaiah’s contributions are just as beautiful!

We can only imagine how wonderful the view would be from here!

And the expertly balanced water helps tie it all together! While it sounds like they enjoy teasing each other just as much as the next pair of siblings, LEGO is definitely something that keeps them close!
