The Small Brick Town Project is an initiative to maximize space and create a small city block of buildings that fits into a small space in our small brick city.
The objectives are to build a series of at least 8 mini-modular buildings that are similar in size to the smaller LEGO creator buildings but with the same design characteristics of the LEGO modular buildings.
The small brick town will occupy the space at the front of my Uptown display which is the space in the lower half of the photo shown below. (Check out our full LEGO city display here)
The Uptown section of our LEGO city where the small brick town will be set.
The great thing about these buildings is that they will see be able to integrate with a city with the standard 32 x 32-stud base plate modular buildings without seeming out of place.
The criteria for the buildings in The Small Brick Town Project include:
The builds must be 12 studs wide x 16 studs deep
They must be corner buildings or “set-in” buildings that can be placed between buildings
They must be MiniFig scale
They must be modular in design such that they separate at each level to reveal the interior.
Some of the mini-modulars currently built – Townhouse, Bike Shop, Toy Store and Corner Deli.
Besides MOCs, we want the buildings to compromise of modifications of existing LEGO buildings and sets. Check out the first build in the line of building – The Corner Deli:
