The world of sports is filled with legendary venues: Fenway Park, Lambeau Field, The Brickyard, The Palestra, and this place; Centre Court at Wimbledon. My old pal Dave Kaleta was commissioned to build this venerable arena and ship it to the UK. Somehow it survived intact, considering all the nifty, irregular connections. Nicely done, Dave- it’s a real home run! Oh, wait…
Talk about a terrifyingly turbulent and terrific technical twist! This building by LegoFjotten is a wonderful marvel of architecture and ingenuity. Not to mention the building it is based on, the Kistefos Museum, is just as fascinating. Now try saying that tongue twister ten times fast. I’ll be waiting.
After being introduced to Lego, I have slowly seen my perception of the world around me evolve over time. I have learned to appreciate the small details in everything and the passion individuals put into their craft. These gilded doors by aukbricks are a perfect link between two worlds, providing a beautifully detailed door through the median we all know and love.
I don’t know much about this creation. It’s from builder Smoker, has no description and the image names are just alphanumeric strings. The only reason I know the name is because there’s an album name and I’m familiar with the tower that inspired this build. What I do know is this is an absolute masterpiece, an incredibly intricate example of classic Chinese architecture and as beautiful as the tower that inspired it.
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.
