Architecture Contest: Burj Al Arab
About this creation
Created for the 2012 Eurobricks Architecture contest in the style of the LEGO Architecture series

Want to see this model made into an official LEGO set? Support it on LEGO Cuusoo

Some conceptual box art. I made up the piece count. I have no idea how many pieces are used. The set number 74147 is actually the post office box number of the real hotel in Dubai.



The model is built upon a 16x16 stud base.








and is 22 studs in height.

















A few factoids about the building

Quoting david drake Question: Was there a single piece/element that set the scale initially for this MOC?
The curving elements used for the atrium membrane wall would have set the scale. I wanted to do something size-wise that was on par with the actual Architecture line.

Knowing that is it ALWAYS harder to recreate an iconic shape in micro/nano-scale, KUDOS to ya' on this amazingly accurate iconic structure at such a small scale! Well done. Question: Was there a single piece/element that set the scale initially for this MOC?

Wow, I considered building this, but yours is much better (and smaller) than what I would've been able to achieve. Immediately captures the essence. Well done!

You have captured the lines of the building very well-hard to do on such a small scale. The actual structure is quite a remarkable piece of architecture. Too bad the Russian Mafia have moved in and set up the usual rackets!

Really nice job Spencer! Although, compared to your other microscale Burj Al Arab, I think this one deserves to be dubbed as nanoscale!
