As you may noticed, we are big fans of Modular Buildings. And beside the official LEGO releases, there are many great MOCs out there.
For example an fantastic corner building by Barrie Crossan: A fantastic looking facade and many details inside the building. And the colours are very fine, too. Barrie was kind enough, to answer a few questions.
The very good looking dutch bar building – I was thinking of the inspiration you had, can you tell us about it?
Well, as for inspiration, I used to work on a ship which was built in Dordrecht and we used to dock at Amsterdam and Harlingen in the Netherlands. There are a lot of nice looking buildings there perfect for recreating in LEGO. I also used streetview in Google Earth saving screenshots of various buildings to use as inspiration.
A corner building is very special, we have seen four in the official line. But it is also a tough choice, isn’t it?
I had always intended to do a corner version of the right-side part of an older building I have created, so my new build is similar to that part I found a screeshot of, showing the angled windows on the corner.
Thank you Barrie – and we’re looking forward to see the next Modular Building of yours. Brick on!
