About this creation
Notre Dame - Lego Architecture
Team: Legion Of Virile Energetic Moccers Unified For Frivolous Ingenious Naughtiness.
(a.k.a The Dream Team)




For this category, I built a model of Notre Dame, a famous Gothic cathedral located in Paris, France. If you are unfamiliar with the structure, I've provided some shots of the real thing to compare with my smaller lego version.



The facade of the cathedral.





A view of the side facade with the duel stain-glass rose windows in the tower. The majority of the windows of the structure are made of stained glass.


A full shot.
Notre Dame

Hope you have enjoyed it. Hopefully I'll be able to get one or two more creations up before the contest ends. Thank you for looking and thank you judges for judging!

When it comes to builds like this, I have zero accuracy critiques. I couldn't even think about attempting this, let alone actually do it. Great work.~H

Finally got some time to go back and check out other's entries...GREAT work, Dylan. You did an excellent job covering the fundementals of the structure to make it immediately identifiable, which is the real goal of microscale if you ask me. I, too, would've probably gone no-studs on the roof, but then you know me...I'm allergic to visible studs! Nice work, man!

Regardless of the roof, it's still an excellent Notre Dame.

You know when a beautiful woman walks by, and I mean stunning. Then, you notice it - a flaw. And no matter how hard you try, you can't get past the flaw. It takes the perfect ten down to a "I'd need a six pack first". It is the roof in this case - the flat, non-pitched, studded roof. I tried man, I really tried. I went away, came back, went to work, came back. Looked at pictures to verify my memory was right, and came back again. All I see is the roof - sigh. Four (4) points for an otherwise gorgeous build. Lee.

Regardless of the "missed" details as pointed out in the comments, it takes mad skillz to build a structure like this. Amazing!

There are so many things to like about it; the detail, the presentation, the shear hours you must have put it. I'm really on the fence about what to give it. I have a few problems with the way some elements line up. But, it is mircoscale and you did a great job, so I'll be generous and award 5 points.

I'm torn Dylan, I really am. This is a super build but I've been to Notre Dame so i'm being (maybe overly) critical here and I keep seeing things that just arn't quite there. Now I appreciate it's microscale, so there is a limit to what can be done in terms of accuracy. Still, perhaps i've been spoiled by some of your creations in the past. The good (great in fact) is the flying buttresses, the stained glass, the general shape and dimensions making it recognisably Notre Dame. But, I just don't dig the spout pieces, there seems to be a lot of foliage (Rue cloitre du notre dame runs to the left of the front entrance so there is none there)and the black roof seems a bit stark. Great job, I'm just being a picky old man.

Not a bad adaptation. The front has some odd gaps that aren't reflected in the original and as noted the roof is too shallow and lacks the peak needed. It would be a nice addition to a Micro city layout. Good luck after your strong start with the judges. see ya. garth

Nice. The front end is a bit wide but it's still realy good! I saw the real building a few weeks ago on a school trip!

Wonderful. It really catches that classic look. Also great use of those spout bricks. However, it is a bit too wide, don't you agree?

Beautiful! I've been there only once that I remember, and you've captured it perfectly. I especially like the garden out front, that's a nice touch. Great job with the stained glass!

Nice work here. You captured the look of the place very well. I just want to know when you're going to post the mosaic of Touchdown Jesus. Oh, wrong Notre Dame. My bad.

This is very nice, I just don't like how the windows came out, but there probably isn't a way around that.

Amazing I think you got the castle category covered. Definately covered. Just a quick question- how many megapixels does your camera have?
