Play Time with Legos

James and I both absolutely love playing with Legos. It’s safe to say that we subscribe to the idea that, ‘adults are only kids grown-up, anyway,’ and greatly value the importance of having fun however we see fit. We have a few bins in our closet dedicated to several lego collections including some from James’ childhood. We also have a few models on display throughout our apartment such as The Millenium Falcon, The Back to the Future DeLorean, and several mini-figs. A couple of months ago we decided to splurge on the Lego Architecture Studio set to add to our ever growing Lego collection. We knew that this was something we could have a lot of fun with and that it would continuously challenge our creativity. Happily, we haven’t regretted this purchase for a second. Here are some of the models we have created so far:

The scale of this one was determined by the steps. In theory this is only the front of the building as creating the entire concept for the building would have taken a lot more time and pieces. This is perhaps the largest one we have made so far.

In contrast, this model is one of the smaller ones we have created. The idea here is to represent three individual skyscrapers that would exist in the same metropolis.

This model can represent a hotel or apartment building. If you look closely there are supposed to be about four stories with a little balcony for each unit.

These three were some of the very first structures we made. They were mostly arbitrary as we had fun learning how all the different types of pieces worked together.

This piece directly modeled after a tile from the Ennis House is much more complex than it may appear; James used an intricate series of small plates to create the shapes inside the square. Unfortunately, the end product was still rather simplified from the ideal since we did not have enough pieces to make a larger fully detailed version.

    Those are pretty cool models. Always wondered if the architecture studio is worth it’s price, looks like it is. Sadly it’s not even for sale in the official Lego on-line store in my country. So I’ll have to make due with your photo’s 😉
