Neoclassical Bank Building
Bank and office building.
About this creation
A seven story bank building constructed in the neoclassical architectural style. It is not based on any specific prototype but incorporates common features seen in older banks. This building was included as part of MichLTCs city display at the NMRA National Train Show in July 2005.

Completion Date: May 2005.

   The buiding follows the typical neoclassical concept of the building as column with a base (the bottom two floors), shaft (the next 5), and capital (the top floor).

   The pilasters consist of the 1x2 grill bricks set 1/2 stud out from the wall.

   If veteran Lego builders do not like the dark blue gray color of the middle stories, I will get over it.

   Here is the bank in among the buildings of my own Lego city one week before the NMRA show.

I can't really decide which of your buildings I like best! They're ALL excellent and very inspiring. I almost feel brave enough to tackle the TransAmerica Pyramid!

This is as fine a LEGO building as I have ever seen! It's modelling in LEGO of the highest order. Excellently done! Your 'Detroit Public Library' is still my favorite, though! It's fabulous!

WOW !!! If you had tiled the sidewalk in the "Details of the pilasters and arches of the facade" picture, I honestly would not know that it was even made out of Lego, it is just that realistic. And in the last pic, if we couldn't see the underside of the plates that make up the roof, it would look just like a real building also. This creation really stands out as a defining piece. It just goes to show how amazing an artist can be when he's nto trying to re-create an existing building. You may have sent me off in an entirely different direction with my Legos. ALl the while I've been thinking of the next building to re-create, and maybe I should just design my own... *goes off to bricklink to rethink his purchases*
