1500 parts architecture model of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao designed by the famous architect Frank Gehry.
About this creation
This is maybe the most complex model I've ever designed (and built). The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is one of the most spectacular buildings of the recent decades. Its style of deconstructivism and seemingly random but also very organic curves make for a magnificent view.
I decided to use white bricks for the titanium surface - metallic parts are too rare in LEGO and grey is too dull for the highly reflective surfaces in the bright sun of spain.
The building is surrounded by water and some large works of art, most noticeable the tulips (represented by violet cherries in the model) and the puppy by Jeff Koons.
I've created instructions to build this model (which was not easy because of the complex forms! :) ) If you are interested write to lego(at)thilo-schoen.de.
The puppy guards the entrance area from the street side, a large sign advertises the current exhibitions.
Wonderful model in my beloved scale! SNOT technique combined with other clever ideas and nice color scheme make this a truly wonderful creation! Makes me wanna visit the real thing again! Keep up the good work!
