Lego Venice Architecture MOC, Santa Maria della Salute

Markus's Lego Architecture Santa Maria Della Salute, Venice

There is an almost endless list of historical important buildings that could go through the Lego Architecture system. A lot of people are inspired by these landmarks and the Architecture theme; then go and build their own. Markus created an awesome MOC based on the Santa Maria della Salute in Venice Italy. A baroque style Roman Catholic church with an iconic dome. Considering its scale, this Lego Santa Maria della Salute is about as accurate as you can get to the real thing. Markus even won a nomination from the recent Brickworld 2015 for Best Small Building.

Lego Stargate Box Diorama

Brian Williams's Lego Stargate

The science fiction universe of Stargate is one of those series that has managed to find its audience. The fans have managed to keep Stargate alive, from a Movie to multiple TV shows. There are theme park rides, video games, fan fictions, and books. Even Lego haven’t been left behind in the Stargate movement. This MOC, created by Brian Williams (aka: BMW_Indy) is a great build. Featuring some seriously good lighting, and a tightly controlled perspective. The Stargate itself is the center piece, and is integrated with a tablet display to create the wormhole special effect. At first glance, it is easy to assume you are looking at a scene from the movie. This style of building is being called a box diorama, and many of them were on show at Brickworld.

Check out the video below to see how the lighting interacts with the Lego:

Cyberpocalypse — A Lego Cyberpunk City

ChrisEdwards's Cyberpocalypse A Lego Cyberpunk City 2

Cyberpocalypse is an amazing Lego Cyberpunk city. You can almost imagine Rick Deckard, Case, Hiro Protagonist, Adam Jensen, Akira, or Major Kusanagi hiding out in the streets of Cyberpocalypse. By combining different cultures in this city it helps to capture the urban feel of cyberpunk perfectly. The feeling of overwhelming density, hyper advertising, all mixed with a bit of lawlessness. This is a vision of a future that never came, or a future that is inevitable. Cyberpocalypse proves that Lego and cyberpunk are a perfect match.

This version of Cyberpocalypse stars work from Carter Baldwin, Nate Brill, Kyle Vreze, Forest King, Ignacio Bernaldez, Sam Wormuth, Alex Valentino and Chris Edwards. This team, lead by Carter Baldwin, set out to create a near future version of a metropolis, and succeeded. This city looks great in daylight, but looks even more impressive at night. Using an extensive array of hidden lighting to bring a sense of hustle and bustle to Cyberpocalypse.

Cyberpocalypse has recently been on display at Brickworld 2013. With plans to make an appearance at BrickFair in August. It will be interesting to see where this project goes, as the team is currently planning on adding more to this MOC, and expanding the lighting system too.
