Microscale Architecture
About this creation

Presenting a selection of microscale buildings. Actually the scale varies a lot between these mocs; I don't like to stick to one particular scale as it's too restrictive when building. So you'll probably notice that in some buildings a person would stand much less than one stud high whereas in others they may be about one brick high. They were lots of fun to build and very addictive, each one was an experiment in style or atmosphere. Definitely coming back to build more of these in the future!

(Once again, apologies for those who've seen these on my Flickr already-I've fallen behind in my posting again. Ideally I like to post on Flickr and Mocpages simultaneously but it's not always possible)

City hospital



"Golden Sands" coastal residence. Wish I had more tan and dark tan plates...




These next two are a little more dystopian in flavour: I failed on this first one, a highrise apartment block-I think they would've looked much better with large fanblades or cooling ducts on the facade:



Powerstation, perhaps from George Orwell's "1984"




Some retro yuminess on this next one (also my favourite of the lot). Here the scale's jumped to something almost minifig scale but not quite.






Another one I'm not so happy with, I think the landscaping let it down. I intended to have a monochromatic landscape, like a computer simulation and contrast the studdy land to the smooth building. Meh!



1982. Reclusive and brilliant computer programmer Nigel Freeson spends most of his time in his android home which he calls "The Encryptor", hidden deep in the mountains. The rumours say he's gone crazy, planning world domination... What does he do there?

This house is something you might've seen in an article about 21st century housing technology in a magazine like "Omni" in the 80's. It's a rather sinister-looking, computer controlled home, with a touch of "Memphis" design for flavour.


Lastly, a seaside design with a dock and large multi-story tinted glass atrium, called the Petrel (c'mon, expensive houses like this need silly names, trust me!)






I encourage eveyone to play with being an architect for a day, it's a lot of fun and you often pick up ideas and techniques for other, cooler mocs, like robots and SPACESHIPS! Don't worry too much about scale when you start, you can work that out later. What kind of buildings will you create for humanity: sleek, futuristic pleasure domes or chilling dystopian prisons? You decide!

Beautiful buildings - my favorite is the city hospital. I like those microscale MOCs since they always show some interesting part usage and technique.

These are little beauties! Love them all and shows just how imaginative your thinking is! I love making mini things like this, I'm currently on a mini Batman mission, built a mini Tumbler, which has been posted and have just completed the mini batboat and plane! Thanks for your comment on my M.O. Entry and good luck to us both ;)

Very cool. I may have to use some techniques for my city.

Well done, these are very good! The thing you said about scale is very interesting, I almost always plan scale before anything else. It might be fun to build without scale in consideration! :)

Very interesting designs you've created. I'm always inspired by your architectural designs. Though I may not get into my own designs for a bit, I do have a LARGE architectural project on the drawing board.

OMNI magazine...now that takes me back! My grandpa had a subscription to that one and I loved perusing through it. You've got some great designs here, ShannO!~H

Crafty builds here, Chief! Great variety, love that power station, but I think it's from the Apple Superbowl commercial...And the car is awesome!

Maybe a microscale city is in order? Or was there a Shannon that already performed that feat? Nice job. Lee.

Very nice, I think my favourite is either the red one or the hospital.

Good stuff. The trees outside the hospital are a nice touch and I really think the lone with the dock is concept architecture at it's best.

So many brilliant ideas. My favourite is the one with the monochromatic landscape and the peach coloured background. Although you are not happy with it, I love it. That and the first one.
