I am excited to share another in-depth look at an amazing LEGO Architecture creation, a minifigure-scale model of the Maggie's Centre in Newcastle, UK by Edward Cullinan Architects.  The LEGO model is by Steve Mayes, an architectural photographer and talented LEGO Artist.

Maggie's Centre is a nonprofit organization dedicated supporting people living with cancer, in beautifully designed buildings by influential architects like Frank Gehry and Zaha Hadid.

Steve was generous enough to provide me with a lot of photos of his model, which I chose to show side-by-side with photos of the real building.  I think he did an excellent job in capturing some difficult shapes and a lot of fine details in this model.
