It seems I was able to cram in one final build before the end of the month. Today I was fiddling with some 1x2x5 bricks (2454) in light aqua, and teamed them up with some 1×2 in transparent neon green bricks – they looked quite funky together. This gave me a tall base to work with. Then I picked out a load of 4×4 bley plates and some transparent red 1×2 bricks, with a handful of other modified bley bricks and set to work.
I like the individual pods at each side of the main structure. I had used a 1×1 modified brick with handle (2921) on some corners, and felt that satellite dishes in trans red could hang off them to give some extra details. As I started adding the upper structure, I imagined they would be apartments, above an office space below. But then I had an idea – perhaps the bottom section could be large TV studios and these upper levels were were the journos had their desks, looking out across the city through rose-tinted glass?
I liked the idea more and more, especially once I had given the outside some pleasant landscaping, manicured hedges and plants.
Then another thought occurred to me – perhaps I could join this new build with another venerable old one – the Flatiron Building – similar to what a certain other National Broadcaster had done with their central London HQ? With much the same back story, clearly MBC had out-grown their original premises, which was mainly equipped for radio, and needed a shiny new development so they could properly expand their Television output to the populace. And so here we have, Old & New Broadcasting House.
This story is purely fictional. Any resemblance to familiar landmarks, living or dead, is completely accidental. No journos were harmed in the making of this module.
