Building with LEGO is all about self-expression and exercising one’s imagination, but creations that tell real-life stories have always compelled my attention. Jeffrey Kong‘s stationery holder and drawer unit is not just a nice decoration for an office desk. In fact it is a tiny copy of the Old National Library of Singapore, which was demolished in 2004. According to the build’s description, the National Library building was one of the symbols of the city, especially popular among students. I love the symbolism of this work, and its neat clean style makes it a brilliant remembrance.
Halloween is no doubt the most creative of all holidays. We decorate our houses, we design and sew awesome costumes and, of course, build the most terrific LEGO creations. But before bringing to life any of your holiday ideas, make sure you have your tools ready. Johnnie Brick Xavier decorates his work desk not only with the most functional brick-built organizer I’ve ever seen, but also the spookiest one. Lots of bonus points for this set of matching stationary — at first, I believed the tiny calendar was a printed LEGO tile!
