Architecture

What is more classically LEGO than building a building? I've built a number of buildings, most in a relatively small scale.

Target

June 2020

Inspiration: Built for a RebelLug monthly 2 hour build contest with the seed part of a bucket, used in the target logo. I've also wanted to build a microscale target with that ball joint part every single time I go to a Target. Admit it, you see it too.

Build time: 1 hour

Website exclusive I guess?

Jurassic World Gyrosphere Station

May 2020

Inspiration: In fall 2019 I got to talking to the incredible builder and friend known as "The Jackhammer" about a possible collaboration. We brainstormed possible ideas, and a gyrosphere station quickly came to the forefront.

Features: slightly sloped floor so gyrosphere rolls through station smoothly, remotely activated low profile turntable to move gyrosphere off of the track into a shed, modern architecture (I'm gonna call that a feature, sure, why not)

Ghostbusters Firehouse

June 2016

Inspiration: the Ghostbusters Firehouse LEGO set came out around that time. I made this way before I had any social media, this is definitely one of the oldest models I'm still kinda proud of.

Yet another website exclusive!

Sydney Opera House

January 2021

Inspiration: Built for Iron Forge Round 3 with the seed part of the trapezoidal flags, used 5 times here. At this point in the competition I was spinning and needed to get something, anything, out.

Build time: an hour or two
