Memorial Hermann Tower . TEXLUG's LEGO version of the Memorial Hermann Tower . A MOC of Memorial Hermann Tower Houston, TX This MOC was designed by TEXLUGers TJ Avery and myself The MOC started when TJ got this email on Aug 08, 2008: Good afternoon, TJ – My name is Lindsey K. and I work for Memorial Hermann in Houston, TX. We worked with two of your group members a few years back on a Christmas build in conjunction with Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital. We are looking to host a similar event at the new Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center and I wanted to see if TexLUG might be interested in working with us again. This time, we want to replicate our new building located on IH 10 at Gessner. If you live in Houston, you know what I’m talking about… it’s a 33-story glass structure with a “crown” on top. In any case, if you are interested in discussing this further, please contact me. Thank you! LindseyNote: More information after the pictures. After much time: Photos by TEXLUGer Matt Sailors used with permission. Here's TEXLUG's LEGO version of the Memorial Hermann Tower in it's temporary home in the lobby of the real thing. Memorial Hermann Hospital was to host an event in the Tower the same day the model was installed, and then in the evening would move the tower to a conference room for storage until a permanent display case is built. Currently we are told that after the building is completely finished the model will be moved up to the entry floor of the Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital to set in the foyer there. TEXLUG's debut of the commissioned build of the new Memorial Hermann Tower at the grand opening festivities November 14, 2009. TEXLUGer Anthony Sava took a series of pictures during the Grand Opening Show Matt and I lifting the middle section up and into place. Here I am setting the "crown" in place. The real building - Model designed by TEXLUGers TJ Avery & Kurt Baty- Model assembled by TEXLUGers TJ Avery, Henry Avery, Kurt Baty, Matt Sailors, Tony Sava, Christina Sava, and James Simpson- Scale of model is approximately 1:130 (although the scale of the floors and windows are "LEGO-fied" and do not match the 1:130 scale)- Total pieces approximately 16,000- Weight of model is 55 pounds- Height of model 4 feet- Construction time about 1 month (actual building time; the planning and design phase was about 3 months)- Number of windows 907 The Home of Republic of Texas Navy in LEGOs is right here on MOCpages. enjoy kurt Notes:RTS - Republic of Texas ShipRTN - Republic of Texas NavyLNA - Lego Naval Architect
