The structural shape of this model was heavily influenced by a Micropolis block called Sunrise Tower by well known builder Little Brick Root, although I have built it on a smaller scale and with more colours. It makes a bright and airy landmark for the workers of the Downtown zone, which they have nicknamed the Rainbow Twist.
Lemon Tree Condos is a block of luxury apartments in the residential area of Micropolis, with just two spacious units per floor.
For the last 100 days, along with thousands of other attractions around the world, the LEGO House in Billund has been silent and empty of visitors, due to the pandemic restrictions. Things are now improving in Denmark, so from today, 22nd June, the House will be open again, with special social distancing measures in place. The Dinosaurs can’t wait to welcome visitors again.
As many of my viewers will know, I have some of my Micropolis models on display in the Masterpiece Gallery, which would normally run for 12 months. But recently, the LEGO House folks have been in touch to ask if they can keep my builds for another 12 months, so they will continue to be on display until September 2021.
A few months ago I saw an image on Google of a large, blocky building with a letterbox-style inset around two sides on the first floor. I thought about it for a while and eventually this design formed the seed of the idea for this building, Big Orange Storage.
I’ve been collecting some of LEGO’s old red windows for some time now, and I finally gathered enough of the small ones to use in a Micropolis build. I came up with this stepped-roofed creation called the Civic Theatre, which is a popular venue for a night out to watch a play or listen to a band.
I’ve been wanting to make some more industrial structures for my microscale city for some time, and decided that a small factory would be my next project. The Boot Factory will form a quarter block plot somewhere on the outskirts of the airport, along with some other industrial units.
