My entry for the Juvenile Delinquents in the category of "LEGO Architecture." [MOCAthlon 2010]
About this creation
The Burj Al Arab is a 5-star hotel located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Standing at 1053 feet (321 meters), it is currently the 34th tallest skyscraper in the world.
The entire hotel is situated on an artificial island. It is connected to the Jumeirah Beach via a bridge.
The Burj Al Arab's design is based on a ship's sail, and iconic of the city of Dubai.
It was a particularly difficult design to pull off, since the structure is rounded for the most part. The fact that I was working in micro-scale with mostly rectangular bricks made it even more difficult.
Very nice presentation and you kept with the Lego Architecture theme. But the build itself doesn't represent the actual building enough for my taste; I think it would have to have been in a slightly larger scale to get a few more details and make it work. I award 2 points.
I was not familiar with the thing, so a reference would have been nice (if you add one, you can tell the judges I gave my permission in order to help them in the comparison). It's not much recognizable, but I think you did the best in the scale you chose. It looks very good and the pics are clear. 3 points.
