Microscale BIG builds 02

PANDA-Panda House

Panda House is the home for giant pandas Mao Sun and Xing Er in Copenhagen Zoo. This is divided into two separate areas which appear as a yin and yang symbol, creating the freest and most naturalistic possible environment for the giant pandas.

The micro panda house is built with 540 lego bricks. I started with the round enclosure, to have an idea of the global scale of the model. When starting a new model, I always define the scale while building it, depensding on the dimension of the bricks I use; that’s why each model has its own scale. The challenging part here was to combine the circular shape with the rectangular base.

MTN-The Mountain

Mountain Dwellings is a building located in the Ørestad district of Copenhagen, consisting of apartments above a multi-story car park, merging the two functions into a symbiotic relationship.

I did two versions of the Mountain: the first one turned out too big, so I decided to start again with a smaller apartment module even if the final one is a bit less accurate, but I think pretty succesful in that scale.

8-8 Tallet

8 House is a large mixed-use development built in the southern perimeter of the new suburb of Ørestad in Copenhagen.

The 8 tallet was very challenging as well, as it’s really hard to get various angles using only lego bricks, but also due to the complexity of the existing build. Using the wall corner 1x1x1 lego element for the balconies is quite successful in this model.
