West Baton Rouge Museum Display
The employees of the West Baton Rouge Museum, in Port Allen, Louisiana, saw the picture of my Louisiana State Capital Building Lego model, and liked it so much, they asked me to build three models for a special museum display. The new Louisiana State Capital Building model is located at: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/170502
About this creation



Louisiana's Old State Capitol Building in Baton Rouge. This Gothic structure sits on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River.





The Samdbar Plantation house was built in 1837 for Dr. Thomas Philander and Marie Aureline Vaughn as a wedding gift. It was later purchased in 1925 by Charles H. Dameron, who introduced the first steam shovel to levee construction.






The French Creole Aillet House was built in 1830. It represents Louisiana's earliest French Creole architectural tradition. This actual house currently sits on the museum grounds.

Excellent work, Rita. Creating buildings is the probably the original and best use of Lego bricks. Keep on building!

These are a remarkable set of MOC's! Nice job. I love your creations and replicas. I know why you built the pink building out of tan bricks though ... my pink and gold brick MOC's have been VERY expensive ... but worth it! (*wink*)

The pictures don't do this justice. I had the chance to see it in real life I was floored when I saw it.

I enjoy your buildings very much! Btw, where did you get the large number of grey roof tiles? I checked on Lego Pick-a-Brick but they don't seem to sell the valley and ridge tiles in grey (only bright red).

Another magnificent creation...as a native Louisianian, I must say that you have certainly captured the charm of the state in all of your creations...not to mention your expert building methods!

Very nice work! I especially like how the proportions of your models offer a far more pleasing appearance than that of the actual buildings they are based on. The plantation house is the best example of what I mean: that roof pitch looks beautiful.

Outstanding work Rita. I'm very impressed with the fact that these fine models will be seen closeup by the many visitors to the museum. Hopefully, this will generate more interest in architectual Lego.

Beautiful models of these landmarks! My favorite is the Capitol building. I think that this one looks the most like the real thing. You also did an excellent job on the other two structures. I really like the roof of The Samdbar Plantation House- very unique. The French Creole Aillet House looks really cute and simple. Great work on these landmarks! Keep building! -Anthony Dunne

You have some skill here. That capitol building is spectacular, and then I saw that the details were made up of mostly rotating piece bases. I nearly fainted there. Stupendous job. ~Waff

Excellent job as always Rita! I'm really bummed that you won't make it to BW this year! I could really learn a LOT by chatting with you and stealing.....errr "learning" your techniques. :P I am attending a class put on by Arthur though, so I will get a little bit of help at least. LOL

Fine looking buildings, especially the capitol. I bet people will really like them when they stop in at the museum. You should snap a few shots of them in the display. see ya. garth

Fantastic attention to detail on all of these. The museum really captures the look of the real building, and the interesting Louisiana factoids add to the presentation. The houses are simply amazing as well -- you find those bits that make the real structure interesting and unique and convert them into Lego in ways I could only dream about. I'd love to see you take on some homes in New Orleans' garden district or some of the buildings at Tulane.
