This architecture set was a challenge to design. Due to the historic buildings and the tourist attraction of the sight.
Piccadilly Circus is a road junction and public space of London’s West End in the City of Westminster. It was built in 1819 to connect Regent Street with Piccadilly.
To start building and design this set I started with the layout of the road. I’ve tried to keep the design as close to the original but Lego doesn’t have that much plate corners so with a lot of puzzling it worked out well. The historic buildings were a challenge too and especially the building with the neon signs and video display. Also the London Pavilion and Criterion Theatre on the right was hard to build because of the triangle design. I’ve also made the Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain and statue, which is popularly, though mistakenly, believed to be Eros.
Underneath the plaza is Piccadilly Circus Underground station, part of the London Underground system. The entrances of the underground and the kiosks are also displayed on the layout of the sight.
Keep on Building.
