The world watched in collective horror as fire raged through Notre Dame last month. We all reacted in our own way, some prayed, some cried, some vowed to rebuild and some were just frozen in disbelief. But builder Rocco Buttliere committed to building this, a spectacular recreation of the beloved architectural masterpiece. It is intentionally set in springtime to represent rebirth, a notion I find irresistibly uplifting. Click through for more pictures and some fascinating history.
I love hearing the spark of inspiration behind a MOC as beautiful and intricate as this Colosseum by SkyWalter. In this case it’s the 1x2 “jumper arch” that started it all. Those and the new style wands make up the classic arches and columns of this wonderfully realized Architecture style piece.
Micro builds allow your imagination to fly free. They’re small in size but large in creativity, like this futuristic complex by builder Dan_Sto. With it’s stacked, irregularly rotated blocks it looks like something from a sci-fi movie. Imagine my surprise when I discovered it’s actually based on a real structure. The future is now! (where’s my flying car?)
Welcome to the house on the hill, the vaguely volcano shaped hill, with a magma inspired color scheme, it's the Lava House. I love the attention to detail and like every house by builder betweenbrickwalls, it's got a fully decked out interior featuring a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom downstairs and TV corner upstairs.
I would say that most of us in the LEGO community, at one time or another, have experienced the overwhelming compulsion to build something; from spaceships, to castles, to superhero figures, and of course, spaceships. Or, if you're like WTyler, the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Since his retirement from the video game industry several years ago, he's occupied his new-found free time with LEGO. Crossword puzzles and golf just weren't doing it for him.Read More
Okay, so this is a real place. Near Copenhagen, Denmark, there's a gigantic incinerator building, and on the roof there's an artificial ski slope that can be used year round. Wow! So, Lasse Vestergard, continuing with his endeavor to recreate the architectural designs of the Bjarke Ingels Group, has faithfully constructed it in LEGO form. Cool! Hot? Well, you get what I mean...
