Dam
A large dam, made out of a sheet of 1x2 bricks, freely resting on supports. The curve is both from left to right, as also up to down. It is not modeled after any existing dam.
About this creation
This is a large dam, not particularly modeled after any exisiting dam. Most prominent feature is the large curved wall. It consits of 5400 1x2 light grey bricks, in a large sheet. The flexibility of this sheet allows it to be curved.

You did good at that convention with snap shots and Pierre Fieschi I think that there are so many bricks on it it looks curved.
