The Towers of Ghent
“Sometime early spring I got an e-mail from Nico Boone from LEGO Belgium. If I would be interested in driving to Ghent for a meeting with some people that were starting up a new museum.” That museum was inaugurated on Friday October 8th 2010. It is called “STA.M” and evoques both historical, contemporary and – why not – future Ghent. The site is historical, the way the museum is conceived is highly modern and attractive. At the end of the tour visitors are invited to build their little piece of Ghent ... with the more than 200.000 white LEGO bricks they find at their disposal. And to inspire them to get started, LEGO Certified Professional Dirk Denoyelle and his team built the four best known towers of the city of Ghent: the St-Baafs Cathedral, the Belfrey, The Saint-Nicholas Church and the Book Tower. It took Dirk and his crew 350 hours and about 170.000 bricks. And some sleepless nights, as gothic architecture is not the easiest to translate into LEGO. But all is well that ends well J
About this creation

This is what two of the towers look like in reality

The book twoer and the twoer (only the tower) of Saint-Nicholas' in my garden

The Belfrey

Very fine and detailed towers. What scale are they in, and are they all in the same scale? They look like four giant wedding-cakes ;-) I especially like that you have left a lot of loose bricks on the base-board, I suppose to udnerline that they are indeed made of Lego bricks.

So beautiful and inspiring. And really, that first picture is incredibly artistic. I like the decision to use only white bricks; that way the building is articulated as a whole and your eye isn't drawn to any one particular part but forced to see them in their entirety. Excellent work.

Wow! Very well done. The monochromatic scheme simplifies things and doesn't detract at all. I especially like the belfry.
