Old Main, Pennstate University
Old Main is the administrative building at Pennstate University, Main Campus. It is located in University Park, PA, right next to downtown State College.
About this creation
I promise to take better pictures once I get my own apartment!!

Originally built in 1863, the first iteration of the building was demolished in 1929 after being deemed "structurally unsound", and was rebuit on top of the same footprint in 1930 as we know it today. It was the first major building to belong to Pennstate University, and is still the most recognizable piece of architecture on campus today.

State College, PA is my home town and I attended Pennstate for 4 years. This building held a special place in my heart. Growing up, you could hear the bell tower chime every 15 minutes for miles in all directions. Thanks to Old Main, you barely ever needed a watch when making it to class.

This is my 4th MOC to be built. Future revisions will include sections of the front lawn and rear parking lot. My first attempt to design Old Main was on a much larger scale, about 4 times as big, though I hit a roadblock once roof construction began. Afterwards, my laptop's hard drive crashed and I lost all the design files. It was another month before I felt motivated to started again.

The building itself is 2365 pieces and was designed in LDD. Pieces came from both BrickLink and Pick-A-Brick at about a 60/40 split.
