Dark Red Modular Love

Dark Red Modular Love, originally uploaded by ToT-LUG.
It took two Fire Brigades, but it sure came out well. I especially like the columned windows on the sides, it makes for a very well made "turn of the century" look.

Super-Size Me Market Street

DenisM presents his own twist on some of the modular buildings. I really like the way you have incorporated the Fire Brigade design with a City fire station. Check them out here.


Dillon has created this truely original building called The House of the Inventor. It would be good to know some more about it. Hopefully you can get in touch Dillon.

I finally finished up my church yesterday and decided to take some pictures today. It used up practically my entire supply of basic brown bricks (which wasn't a lot in the first place), but I think it was worth it. There's no picture of the interior, as it's pretty bland, but I hope you all enjoy it! 

At some point, I need to get a photo of all my buildings together....

For more pictures, just head on over to Flickr.

Architectural genius Matija Grguric brings us this elegant train station and other town buildings in grand detail. Down to a shopping center and up to a skyscraper, everything's there. This is a true inspiration for anyone wanting to build something, so take heed and look through these magnificent creations.

The incredible train station. Well positioned with a very imposing style.

Color variation is just excellent. Dark blue, dark red, light blue, light gray — it's all there.

 ...and then there's that awesome Honda billboard (closer image here). I really like how these two buildings just work together. The contrast is perfect.

Check out the whole town display over at Matija's Flickr photostream!

The colours in this Street look really realistic. You can see more here. From pepik's gallery.

LEGO House

Yellow is a hard color to use in realistic buildings in my opinion, but Flickr user georgivar obviously had no trouble doing that. Added with the white brick corners and second story balconies, this building makes for a really nice European style structure. Great job on this one!

The Cafe is Now an Embassy

There's been a lot of Cafe Corner mods over the years, many of them seem redundant and lack any unique concept whatsoever. Flickr user, Atom For Peace, however, is an exception. Take a gander at the new Legoland Embassy. As well as being a terrific idea all in itself, the MOC is just fun to look at. The "under construction" look came across very well, and the white stands out perfectly for a government embassy. Keep up the great builds, Atom!

Blue Bard's Weird Social Club

A great little building with two floors for the strange and funny. Visit the second floor for some music or hang out with the old lady and her cat on the first. Do this all while watching an RC plane on the roof and some gun sight adjustment for a dummy. Every city needs that "weird part of town", and Blue Bard addressed that issue first hand.

19th Century Office Tower

Now this is what I'm talking about. MOCpages user Jonas James writes this:

This design incorporates the use of light and dark contrasting to emphasize form and conceals roof structures with a decorative crowning parapet.

And it works perfectly. Great building, can't wait to see more!

Museum of Antiquities

With a large imposing view, this museum brings up the good memories of Johnny Thunder as he ventured through the desert, jungle, and mountains. From expensive gold dinosaurs to walls lined with hieroglyphics, one will see the time taken to get every detail right. Just check out the glass showcases to get an idea. Great job all around, Atlas!
