We are heading back to Micropolis University for the next video. Here you can see the Humanities, Arts and Law Faculty buildings, sitting on a half block baseplate around a landscaped courtyard.
I’ve been wondering what do do with some of these big wheel elements for months. So I fond a handful of Technic axle elements and fashioned this round, oddly knobbly building, which I have decided is the High Energy Phyisics Department at Micropolis University. They are spliitng all sorts of tiny LEGO atoms inside, it’s cutting edge research.
I have recently acquired several copies of the LEGO Dimensions Fantastic Beasts set 71253 very cheaply, which has left me with a number of the large 12×24 plates with the corners cut off and a 6×6 round hole in the middle – part 18601. I started playing with various bricks and came up with the idea that each floor would made from a different colourway, with symmetrical windows and stairwells. The building is the Science faculty of Micropolis University, with a different discipline housed on each floor. I added some landscaping to the corners and a green roof, which is part of the Biology Department’s experiments.
ZigZag Court was inspired by more of the 45degree A plates (15706), this time in dark bluish grey. I used them to organise the main parts of the build in a Z pattern, which once again seems to be backwards!
