Another building that saw the light of the day during Eurobrick’s Modular Madness contest, and that deserves an extra mention, is domino39′s Passage Parisien. If you’ve never been to Paris, you may not pick up on it, but this building is very classicaly Paris. The passage itself with a sloped glass roof and excellent floor tiling is what makes this building really stand out. But also the front facade is a great piece of work, and the red and blue used for the ground floor shops is very reminiscent of many buildings in Paris.
To see more pictures of the building, including the excellent passage, head on over to Eurobricks.
Eurobricks Modular Madness contest brought forward a great deal of awesome modular buildings, but sadly only one could win. One of the entries that didn’t quite reach top spot is gotoAndLego’s Urban Moto. It has a different and more modern style than we’re used to from modular buildings, and it features a lot of nice little details. A nice touch is to use the dumpsters in the back alley for the technic connection points to the neighbouring building.
gotoAndLego also makes some great motorcycles, that you can check out in the detailed pics on Eurobricks.
Now here’s a building I rarely see in someone’s City layout, a universitiy! RoxYourBlox manages to make a big, yet not imposing university that looks like it could fit well in with the modular buildings. There are lots of details to admire on the facade, such as some beautiful curves, and there’s a full interior with labs and everything!
Head on over to Eurobricks for more pictures!
Do your minifigs recycle? LegoJalex’ minifigs certainly do. He built this awesome recycling station for the Modular Madness contest, and that secured him a well deserved victory in the Parks and rec category. This has lots of funny little details, and even comes with a mini comic.

Eurobricks Modular Madness contest has come to an end, and the winners have been announced. In the Classic Modular category, Myko ran away with the votes with this awesome modular building. Different styles blend to one in this very non-blocky building, and it is jam packed with little details. Just look at that cute little fire hydrant, and the wooden fences with climbing plants. So much to see!
Make sure you go check out more pictures on Eurobricks, to see all the details Myko has packed into this!
Friends is all the rage these days, and Hoexbroe’s victorian houses is yet another example of how brightly colored bricks can be blended nicely in a city layout. There are lots of nice details to look at here, and even though the houses at first look almost identical except for the colors, they are far from so. Even the garage doors are all different. Be sure to also check out the awesome car in front of the blue house. Now that’s a beauty!
He has also added some cute little scenes with the Friends dolls, like this one, which is my personal favourite, the girls playing basketball.
Check out his topic on Eurobricks and tell him what you think! He has also recently added a fifth house.
Did you think Friends was only a toy for girls? Think again! In this mashup between Friends and superheroes, Eurobricks member blueandwhite shows us not only how cool Friends can be, but also how nicely the new Friends colors blend with more traditional colors and presents us with some stunning architecture in this street.
Go check out the whole thing on Eurobricks.
