Lego moc Dreams are worth fighting for I always believe that. Even now, I focus on them because that can bring you a worthy life, if not financially, so for sure satisfactory. This belief led me to the most wonderful project in my life – building Krakow’s Cloth Hall of LEGO bricks. It was a challenging breakpoint in my life and I can be really proud of this, see for yourself.
Who hasn’t built anything with this bricks, let first throw a rock! I suppose that everyone in their childhood had built some more or less extraordinary buildings. I’m not different but now, heading to my thirties I’m still having fun with LEGO. You can’t just abandon some of your dreams! Moreover, sometimes it’s worth to keep this precious treasure of your youth because you never know whether it can bear a fruit. In my case it did.
Ecology and healthy life is a really common topic (also for Us lego masters) these days which concerns everybody. I’m into this subject, too because I graduated AGH University of Science and Technology for environment protection. That’s why I decided to help in increasing awareness of waste recycling and care for nature.
Waste management – how to do this properly by lego masters?
An important aspect of environmental protection is to deepen our conscience about that, that’s why me and Hewelianum Centre from Gdańsk took up a challenge to educate people about waste management. The Association of Marine Towns and Communes started a project named “Waste under control” which introduced in Google Lego my new maquette by lego masters, simultaneously teaching about basics of ecology. The aim was to reach the largest group of respondents and therefore the model was traveling across the Pomerania to such cities as Koszalin, Szczecin and Gdańsk, where it stayed for good. If you are curious about learning of taking care of mother Earth on living, I invite you to the Hewelianum Centre, where you can see the model with the specific description and tips for working on our environmental quality.
LEGO mini models and the Amber Arena Stadium in Gdansk in the World of Matt Kustra
A stadium made of Lego? Why not! We launched the construction works in our free time. The LEGO mini models of Baltic Arena Euro 2012 Poland was designed by Ideo company and made entirely out of LEGO. It can serve as a perfect decoration of any office desk or living room. Suitable for all those who love sports and – above all – enamor LEGO. The model was created in a Micro scale corresponding to the scale of LEGO architecture.
Unofficial LEGO sets like Lego Jesus and His Roman Catholic Church
Lego Jesus, that is a Roman Catholic Church designed by Ideo using Lego bricks. Who would not want to have a church entirely made out of Legos in their town? Since forever, each small town seems to have at least one Church, placed near the main square and the town hall. It can’t be missing from any model town! Because of that, we have received an order to build a tiny Church from Lego bricks and had to make it fit in a small area. The extra tricky part was to make sure that one of the walls is open, to allow for an easy access to the interior. Additionally, we had to fill unofficial lego sets the building with tiny details, which are our specialty 😉 A few months later we have finished another, much larger Church – Roman Catholic Holy Parish of Saint Margaret the Virgin in Lomianki, just outside of Warsaw.
Lego Jesus would be proud of a Church like that.
We have used 1900 new Lego blocks in the process. The result of our work can be seen on display at Lego Gallery. We have built one of contemporary Churches along with ornaments as well as the most characteristic elements. With great pleasure we have built a model of an altar with elements such as, for instance, a rostrum. Just behind the altar we have placed a sculpture of St. Mary which baby Jesus and an ornamented stained glass.
On the opposite end, we have placed winding stairs which lead straight to pipe organ. On the side of the building you can find a pulpit. On the ceiling, we have placed a giant lamp. The best part is, the inside of the building can be easily reached via the left side. The whole set is made out of brand new Lego blocks. We would be happy to add additional elements per request, such as a wedding scene or something completely different.
Forbidden LEGO Pathological tenement on the PRL model on the exhibition of the Museum of Municipal Engineering in Krakow
Forbidden LEGO Pathological tenement on the mock People’s Republic of Poland model at the Museum of Municipal Engineering exhibition
An idea on creating a mock forbidden lego model of Republic of Poland, specially designed for the Municipal Engineering Museum in Krakow. Exhibition arose on the forum of adult LEGO bricks lovers. In those days I did not have many bricks and I was not able to fully show what I can do. However, I just had to add my own three bricks to the mock model of a communist town. I got my own, small piece of mock and I got to work on that. The beginning was quite efficient, yet there was no chance to finish it all up quickly. Every time there were some bricks missing and I just could not finish constructing a building without them (those were the days when there were always not enough bricks). Yet I finally made it and the building was fitted in its place.
