East Hall
A 12-foot long model of Western Michigan University's original building.
About this creation
East Hall was the first building built for Western Michigan University. It was built in three stages Between 1904 and 1910, and consisted of an Administration section, training school, and gymnasium. Original plans called for additional wings to be added until the structure was a giant donut, built around a central court. These plans were dropped after the completion of the training school, and future buildings were independent structures.

East Hall has long been the "Holy Grail" of local Lego projects, and I've been thinking of it for many years. I started collecting parts about five years ago, with serious work beginning in July 2015. This was largely motivated by the demolition of the majority of the building the previous summer. The training school was completed by December, and the rest of the model finished in April. It measures 14 standard 10'' Lego baseplates in length and 4 in depth, making it my largest project by a wide margin. It is currently on display at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum until September 11, 2016.
