Day #3617Title: Lever Court Prototype
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I had another play with the Architecture Studio set today, coming up with this little block which initially came from an idea in The LEGO Architect book, but I gave it a few tweaks and my own spin. I’ve since redesigned it with LEGO Digital Designer to be even larger, I just need to find enough bricks to build it.

Day #3613Title: 3D Sketch – Art Deco
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I love Art Deco architecture, so it was inevitable I would have a go at building something in that style in LEGO. This is a design from Tom Alphin’s excellent book, The LEGO Architect. At present, it’s only the front entrance to the cinema, so I need to think about how to make the back into a proper building before it makes it into my Micropolis layout – but it was a useful exercise getting a feel for the building techniques and the shape and size of the finished model. Food for thought.

Day #3612Title: 3D Sketch – Modernism
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I had a noodle around with my LEGO Architecture Studio set today – the idea is to use it as a toolkit for making 3D sketches and prototypes of things I want to build properly in coloured LEGO. Being all white, it rather focuses the mind on shape and form, a bit like making a monochrome photograph. I will probably use this design for a Micropolis module soon, but I need to decide the colour scheme and get the proper bricks sorted out – the Studio set is to be kept together and not robbed of pieces here and there, or I will never keep track of what I need to replace!
