Great Builders, Great Buildings
Issue 13 of Bricks takes a look at some of the world’s best LEGO structures and the amazing builders that create them.
Architecture plays a pivotal role in sculpting our landscapes whether old or new, big or small, structures that push the boundaries of design hold a constant fascination. Our relationship with architecture is no more apparent than when it comes to our use of LEGO bricks; we love to create castles, houses and skyscrapers and much more.
In this issue, Bricks takes a close look at some of the best microscale architecture on offer, from official sets to those brick architects that never cease to amaze. Ingenious part usage and unique techniques are of a plenty.
The journey begins in London, with the new Creator Expert Big Ben set. The techniques used within this set area testament to the skills of the designer, Jamie Berard. We then fly to the USA where Adam Reed Tucker has built wonders of the engineering world for a Chicago museum. Another native of the Windy City is Rocco Buttliere, who reveals the clever techniques used to create his detailed skyscrapers. This month we have an exclusive feature from Tom Alphin, author of The LEGO Architect book, who not only guides you through scale and proportion in LEGO building but also provides his never-before-seen instructions to build your own model of San Diego’s Geisel Library.
In fact this issue is packed with experts, including one of the LEGO Group’s newest signings, Markus Rollbühler. We take a look at the creations that saw him land the dream role of junior designer. We pay a warm welcome back to Luke Hutchinson as he shows us ways of landscaping a medieval scene, and James Pegrum also tackles landscaping – but for microscale models.
This issue is packed with jaw-dropping talent and hints and tips. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have putting it together.
