A replica of the Afro-American Cultural Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
About this creation
I made this model for the Lowes Pride Awards that were held on Jan 17th in Charlottle, North Carolina. It is a replica of the Afro-American Cultural Center. It took me about 2 and a half weeks (100 hours) to design and build this model. I estimate that it has 7,000-8,000 pieces in it.
Getting all the details: the arches, columns, and even the doors was a fun challenge.
Hi Mariann:), this is certainly one of the best Lego buildings I have seen so far. Itīs just wonderful - so many neat details to look at, so many great building techniques... Iīm so interested in something: how did you manage to work for Lego? Ever since I played with Lego, my dream job had been building Legos professionally. I am sure though that I see your (former) job through pink glasses, cause one probably has to always conform to oneīs superiorsī requests. Which might lower oneīs personal creative freedom. But still! Thatīs a dream! Best regards, Steffen
Very nice! Looks like the proportions are spot on. I also like the way you handled the doors and balcony. With the scale and the exposed studs, this has a beautiful "traditional" LEGO feel to it too, which I love.
