CCC XV: Chartres Cathedral

Postby soccerkid6 » Sat Nov 25, 2017 7:21 pm

This was built for a college assignment, where we had to make some sort of visual art. Of course I chose to do something with LEGO, and used it as an opportunity to recreate Chartres Cathedral. The Abbey of St. Piat was not included in my rendition.
It took 16 hours to complete, and weighs 4.6 pounds. This is my first cathedral, and it was quite a fun project. I'm also entering it into the Large Misc. category of the CCC.

End of the semester is approaching, so I should be able to get going on some proper CCC entries before too long :D

Gorgeous. This could easily be a LEGO Architecture set!

I concur! Did your professor appreciate your take on visual art? I don't know the technical terms for architecture (like the gappy bits in the wall), but the walls and tiled edges look fantastic! I'm not familiar with the Cathedral (or can't remember), now I'll definitely check it out! :wink:
Was the structure of interior very piece-intensive?

Thanks Aeridian! The professor was quite impressed, and I got an A for it.
The interior wasn't overly piece intensive, just some filler brick and plates where required to make it quite solid :)
