Water Tower Place
About this creation
This model of Water Tower Place in Chicago is over 6 feet tall and contains 34,000 LEGO pieces. It is on display inside the real building itself.





On display with two other Chicago landmarks
The building was created together with Trump International Hotel and Tower and the Tribune Building . which are together on permanent display at the LEGO store at Water Tower Place Mall in downtown Chicago.

Even though this building is taller than most adults, it doesn't mean I was going to skimp on details. Down at street level, the model has all the details found in the real building... Revolving doors, flags, banners, plants, signs, and more.





You can even look straight through the roadway entrance that runs across the building.




Because I'm insane, I always have to make my building's windows with window shades behind them, some open, some closed, some halfway in between. It takes a lot longer to build the building this way, but it really adds a lot of life to the model. It's one of those things that you never realize is there, but if it was missing... you'd notice.




Much along the same lines, I have this bizarre fascination with "roof junk".




Unlike most of my sculptures, the entire model is ~unglued~ and managed to make its way to Chicago from my New York art studio in one piece. (well, two pieces... It separates in half so it can fit through a door!) :)

Visit!
You can see this model in person! It's on permanent display at the Chicago LEGO Store.

your shades in the windows are more genius than insanity, and the details on the roof is perfectionism, and it s great, as it look much more real that way! i also did things with the roofs of my city, however, i m trying to do it green! i can t express how i d love you to try something in those lines sean! a green building, you can look for models via the craddle to craddle web page, it s very interesting!!! bravo!!!

Awesomely huge and crazily detailed. I don't think I would ever have the patience to do window shades in that many windows. Great job!
