New LEGO Architecture model by 'The LEGO Architect' author in November Brick Loot

I am really excited that the Brick Loot team gave me an opportunity to design a model which was included in the November Brick Loot box.  I jumped at the chance to expand on the narrative I started with my book 'The LEGO Architect' by creating a new model that explores a recent trend in Architecture.


LEGO Architecture model in November 2016 Brick Loot subscription.

The model I designed explores contemporary architecture trends, emphasizing projecting volumes, angular shapes, glass, and mixed materials. I call the model “@ Home”, because the front facade has a curving yellow shape that looks like an “@” sign.


Detailed building instructions


(A video of the build steps is available at Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzxIuxEig8I&feature=youtu.be )


You will find more information about the model, instructions, videos, and photos of early prototypes that I created along the way at: http://brickarchitect.com/brickloot/


Thanks,
Tom Alphin, Author 'The LEGO Architect'

    Nice model! I have built it on Mecabricks:

    I noticed two small things in the instructions. In Step 8, you call for 2x clear 1x2 plates, but you really need 10x. Also, in the intro text, you say "an re-interpretation" instead of "a re-interpretation".

    Good work, and thanks!

    @ricecake, thanks for the corrections - I will update the PDF soon.  Also, thanks for building it in Mechabricks, that is really cool!

    @huw, Thanks!  I'm glad you enjoyed seeing it...  Designing the model was a fun challenge.

    @ricecake, I just updated the instructions to correct the part quantities and grammar.  (I really do appreciate your eye for detail.)
