My entry for the Architecture Contest over at Eurobricks.
About this creation
As soon as I saw this competition I knew what building to choose: The Ericsson Globe, as Iím from Sweden and itís probably our most famous building. And to clarify, the category entered is the landmark series.
The Ericsson Globe (originally known as the Stockholm Globe Arena, or in Swedish nicknamed Globen, íThe Globeí) is the national indoor arena of Sweden, located in the Johanneshov district of Stockholm (Stockholm Globe City). The Ericsson Globe is currently the largest hemispherical building in the world and took two and a half years to build. Shaped like a large white ball, it has a diameter of 110 metres (361 feet) and an inner height of 85 metres (279 feet). The volume of the building is 605,000 cubic metres (21,188,800 cubic feet). It has seating capacity of 16,000 spectators for shows and concerts, and 13,850 for ice hockey.
I also chose to include the surrounding building Annexet in my build, as itís an essential part of the Globe complex. In total, Iíve used some 500+ bricks. The base is 20 x 22 studs. With no further ado, please let me present my entry: The Ericsson Globe.
All in all, this was a fun build which did indeed present some difficulties. If I were to do it again, I probably would have chosen to make an attempt on using SNOT on the globe. And as always, comments and criticism is much welcome as it helps me improve as a builder.
