The Jade Chamber of Genshin Impact descends like a ton of LEGO bricks

Genshin Impact is one of the biggest successes in modern video games with an enormous international fanbase. The Chinese-inspired region of Liyue and the heavenly Jade Chamber are especially popular for their striking architecture and cultural representation. LEGO builder Hugo Huang brings to life the massive Jade Chamber at micro scale, capturing the climactic moment when the palace drops from the heavens to save the city from the god-monster Osial.¬†Hugo adeptly captures the palace’s curves and complex angles in profile, as well as the detailed joinery and gold ornamentation in close up. The blue heads of Osial, the roiling sea, and nanofigures elevate the scene and help sell the scale. Ningguang would be proud! This is the second rendition of the Jade Chamber to be featured here, but the iconic palace also fits nicely in the grand tradition of castles built atop floating rocks.

From above Liyue, the LEGO Jade Chamber beckons

It’s not everyday that you see a tribute to the video game Genshin Impact in LEGO form. But that’s not the only thing that’s exceptional about this microscale Jade Chamber by builder Quy Chau. For instance, those roofs tiled in pearl gold are quite fetching! Sharp angles aplenty adorn the structure in the clouds, from the central octagonal tower to the hexadecagonal stone base it rests upon. The trans-light blue pond that rings the main tower is a great splash of color, with all its accompanying greenery. While I’ve never played the game, this model certainly makes me want to give it a try!
