Future city
A slice out of a micro-scale future city.
About this creation
This is my third MOC since emerging from my (building) dark ages a year ago. It's an experiment in building micro-scale, as practice for making background buildings for another project. It's intended to be a small slice out of Jefferson City on the planet Ziyou, 1400 years in the future. Jefferson City is the setting of a series of stories I plan to illustrate with LEGO®.


One of the main ideas here is that buildings of the future may appear very much like something from contemporary Earth. For example, I live in a colonial-style house that was built a year ago; the colonial style has been around for a few hundred years. While traveling in China, I saw a neighborhood of recently-built houses that were obviously Victorian-inspired (although the exteriors were done with tile, so they had this rather odd sheen to them...)


Inspirations: Vegas. If you could build just about anything you could conceive, and the city had little or no zoning laws, what would you end up with? Something like Vegas, I'd bet. Other inspirations were Hong Kong/Taipei/Shanghai.


On with the MOC! Loading the whole page was taking a lot of time and memory, so I split it into parts:












Dolphin Seaside Resort
Hillside Residences
Residences and Casino
Cloud Tower
Arena
width=175 height=132> Parkside
Factory
width=175 height=132> Financial District


The whole gallery is here: here .



My wife was a huge contributor on this layout, from simple suggestions to small elements to whole buildings. Among her creations:







These trees,
the park,
these statues,
the casino
and the temple,


and every car on the street. Thanks, Summer!

You are obviously very talented in what you do. That's a good thing. Your work in city building is outstanding. I look forward to seeing more of your work. Later

Whoa. Micro MOC's on a grand scale. You've done such an outstanding job on creating such an intricate society of the future. Add that to the fact that you're working on a difficult scale and you've got quite an impressive MOC there.
