Afro-American Cultural Center
A replica of the Afro-American Cultural Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
About this creation
I made this model for the Lowes Pride Awards that were held on Jan 17th in Charlottle, North Carolina. It is a replica of the Afro-American Cultural Center. It took me about 2 and a half weeks (100 hours) to design and build this model. I estimate that it has 7,000-8,000 pieces in it.



Getting all the details: the arches, columns, and even the doors was a fun challenge.

Hi Mariann:), this is certainly one of the best Lego buildings I have seen so far. Itīs just wonderful - so many neat details to look at, so many great building techniques... Iīm so interested in something: how did you manage to work for Lego? Ever since I played with Lego, my dream job had been building Legos professionally. I am sure though that I see your (former) job through pink glasses, cause one probably has to always conform to oneīs superiorsī requests. Which might lower oneīs personal creative freedom. But still! Thatīs a dream! Best regards, Steffen

That's a huge building, and very accurate, only thing that could be improved is color, but red looks good enough, excellent job!

Thanks for all the compliments guys. Egel Vuurzoon, yes, the windows are just lots and lots of 1x2 clear plates stacked up.

Hello Mariann, Beautiful your Cultural Center! With many realistic details. How did you make the window glass? Are they made from a stack of transparant plates?

This is a great representation of the original. I love the balcony and door details as well as the domes you've done on top. Nice!

Very nice! Looks like the proportions are spot on. I also like the way you handled the doors and balcony. With the scale and the exposed studs, this has a beautiful "traditional" LEGO feel to it too, which I love.
