LEGO Medieval Street Market
MEDIEVAL MARKET STREET
Designer: Alan P
Sometimes the strength of a design is in its high concept, other times in its flawless execution. This Medieval Street Market looks like it could pop right out of a Lego catalog. Its brilliance isn't in the idea, but the masterful way that small details are represented. Rough cobblestone streets are hinted at with judiciously placed pegs. Uneven plaster is represented by interspersing round bricks in an otherwise rectilinear surface. Dozens of tiny details add up to one very impressive tableau.
