Titanic Belfast Museum
About this creation
My third large scale build for Bright Bricks. Currently on display at the The Titanic Belfast Museum as part of the Brick City Lego tour.

This was the most technically difficult build I have undertaken to date, it took me approximately 4 weeks to complete. Two weeks talking to the architect, deciphering the technical plans, figuring out the angles and to build the base/ground floor. One week to build the façade panels. And finally one week putting the whole thing together in a Perspex box in the middle of a busy shopping centre in Belfast.

As per usual with this type of build I had plenty of help and advice from the Bright Bricks team.

Putting the final details on.


Hope you like it.

WOOOOOW!! I'm speechles!! You reached such a high level of mastery. I understand the 4 weeks of conception and reflexion. The scale and the accuracy are amazing. Epoustouflant!!!

Although not fond of the original building, great work here! Must have been a nightmare with those angles!

@ Everyone – thank you so much for the kind comments, I am very proud of this one so it is fantastic to hear your thoughts on it. @ Deus – Thanks, you are right the building is monochrome. I chose these colours because the surface is highly reflective and under certain light conditions it reflects the earthy colours of its surroundings. It is not to everyone’s taste but I like it :D @ Tim – Thank you so much for your comment. I always appreciate your well constructed and eloquent words. You are right I have been given freedom to experiment with ideas (and almost limitless pieces) I never thought possible – I am very lucky. The angles on the base were a nightmare – but at this scale you will eventually find a stud that matches the required angles.

This is spectacular, Joe. I'm really glad you've teamed up with Bright Bricks. It seems to have opened up your mind a bit in your builds in this sort of forced diversity. Don't get me wrong, your figures and cars are among the best in the community, but it's thrilling to see just how far-reaching your talent truly is. The angles and textures on those walls has had me scratching my head since I first saw them and I love all the areas where you see trans-blue windows peeking out. I'm also pretty enamored with the different shapes that you got along the pavement. Those acute angles are impossible, aren't they;) Superb work, Joe.

A fascinating build, especially all of the triangular shapes and textures. The WIP photographs, with the cylindrical columns are fascinating too. Although this build doesn't need to be swooshed it must need a lot of strength to support the big pannels. My favourite shapes are the windows.

Wonderful job again, you are really pushing the boundaries of the system no doubt! I cannot imagine how frustrating this was to plan for and finally build, or how relieved you were to finish this amazing rendition.

Well, yes, the shape is quite correct and on its own the MOC is really good and has no real flaws, but seeing the reference picture, I wonder why you used tan colours? Looks monochrome gray on the picture...

Just wow!! It is quite a big build and all these surfaces and inclinations makes it an incredible moc!! One of your best creations! That should be a 10/5 but I can't so please be pleased with a 5/5 8-D 8-)

Haha thanks guys. There are hardly any right angles and none of the facades are vertical, I must say it was quite a challenge and I am very pleased it is all over ;)

Quoting David . Wow. The brown would look better as black, but it could just be the shadows in the pictures. Still - Wow.
Thanks David. I used brown on the sign and statue as they are rusty steel. I used Dark orange on the small return walls as they are a dark orangy wood. I assume you mean the dark tan on the panels? I think black would be too stark but perhaps you are right. Always appreciate an honest opinion. Thanks :)

Quoting Nick Barrett It's as if the architect tried to make it as difficult as possible... but you beat him! Very, very well done on this magnificent build :-)
Thanks Nick, the architect actually laughed when I told him I was building it in lego. Haha. Hopefully see you on Thursday.

Thanks guys for the lovely comments. This was an extremely difficult build to pull off especially under severe time constraints and under the constant gaze of the public. I am very proud of it and delighted with the final outcome. PHEW!

Yeah, we always said that we should be allowed to eliminate three architects and engineers a year just to thin out the herds. ;) The best part is when they use the word "just". As in, "Just bend the I-beam." or, my personal favorite, "Just move the building over a foot or two." Yup, had one tell me that. Good times. Goooood times. Great job here again Joe, and it looks like you'll be dealing with more of the "herds" in the future with wonderful mocs like this. ;)

Quoting Gabor Horvath Very difficult job, there aren't too many right angle in it! But the result is great! :)

Quoting matt rowntRee Wow! That footprint is brutal. Love the outer wall effect but those bands of trans blue windows are electric. I've had to deal with designs like this in metal fabrication myself and hope you didn't have the same murderous intentions towards the architect. XD Quite the change from a Megalosaur but just as fantastic. Outstanding!
Thanks Matt, brutal sums this up perfectly - in terms of the build and my thoughts towards the architect ;)
