Taipei 101, Taipei Taiwan . Microscale model of Taipei 101 . 29 photos on Brickshelf.com The model is 31.5 inches (0.8m) in height and is approximately the same scale as my other microscale skyscrapers. The model occupies one large 15"x15" baseplate. The eight segments that make up the pagoda-like top of the tower are stacked over a central rigid techinic beam spine providing adequate structural integrity to resist the dreaded "overturning moment". Digital Models Download a LEGO Digital Designer file of this model created by Oliver Albrecht. There are two files: Base 3079 pieces Tower 1934 pieces Overview of the tower and the indoor shopping center located at the base. Having never been to Taipei, in order to design the model I collected over 300 photos from the internet. Many of them show rare views or uncommon areas of the complex. The shopping center and surrounding plaza took far more time to research and design than the tower! Due to the scale and limitations on the angles of the wedge plates, the sides of the tower have steeper slopes than the actual building. I didn't want to introduce gaps at the corners, so as far as accuracy goes it is as is. Unfortunately sand green wedge plates do not exist, so I used light grey at the corners. Looking up. I used sand green plates behind the light blue tile grilles to help give the facade a greenish-blue tint. The shopping mall located at the base of the tower. Three covered elevated walkways provide access to the mall from the parking structures across the street. I think they detract from the architecture, but I had to include them for completeness. My favorite detail is the small skylights located above the mall that are created with hinge plates. The white atrium roof of the mall was tricky to design (and look smoothly integrated) as the stepped sides run at a 45 degree angle to remainder of the rooftop. One of the detailed entrances to the mall. Some pearl light grey parts are used to give the look of polished metal.
