Amphiteater's Curved Walls Technic
A lot of people asked me which technic I used to create curved walls on my Amphiteater in Nikaia Antipolis' MOC. SO... Enjoy!
About this creation
I spent a lot of time studying the best way to create the feeling of a natural curved wall, and one night I found out the way with a very very simple technic, based on a very few quantity of simple elements (Bricklink descriptions).


First of all, we need some simple parts: 2x3 Bricks, 1x6x2 Arches, Hinge Bricks 1x4 Swiwel (or plates), 6x8 plates, 1x1 plates and the most important part Bricks Modified 1x2 Log (or Bricks Round 1x1, but I prefer the "Log")


Then, we have to decide the height of the pillars: we'll work here on a basis of 5 bricks height pillar


Add Arches upon the pillars


Here you can see the use of the "Log" Brick: just between every Arch


Detail of the "Log" Brick


As I said, you can use Bricks Round 1x1 instead of "Log" Bricks, but I prefer the first solution


Plates are added upon the Arches


The Plates are strenghtened with Hinge Bricks after you fixed the curve angle


The wonderful thing is that 1x3 Bricks can be perfectly fixed upon the plates, even if they are "curved"...


... so you are ready to build the new range of arches


In my Amphiteater I added arches under the plates, to renforce the structure...




... and the plates are fixed upon those arches.


Voilą, have fun!

Hi awesome technique. I tried this and had to force the curve when putting hinges and 2x3 on. Will that hurt the 2x3 bricks? Thanks for sharing

I'm shocked! I would never have thought of that! That's a great idea!

I've never seen this before, but I did practically a dumbed down version of this in my Elvish city. I was having trouble figuring out how to get a plate on top without huge gaps, but your pictures seem to have very small holes in the floor.

That's really slick, Dude! Never would have thought the 2X3s would fit across the curved plates. I'm going to have to try this for myself!
