Recalling in earlier build, I couldn't help but share Joe Gan's amazing builds using a brick separator as the seed element. His model includes the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Golden Gate Bridge, and a Mayan Temple.
W. Navarre's latest build is an Ancient Temple, built for the Colossal Battle Contest. The pyramid temple was not inspired from any particular design, but from a wide assortment of Meso-American temples and ruins. The model reminds, especially in the last image, reminds me of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom!
P. Andrei constructed a micro model of the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus. The ancient Greek structure was built between 353-350 BCE as a tomb for Mausolus.
For a high school senior project Justin Li used 6000 parts to create a large model of the Roman Forum. In addition to more photos of the detailed project, check out Justin's page for a detailed backstory.
Antonio Cerretti built the Forum of Nerva, originally an ancient Roman marketplace. Originally constructed in 97 CE, the model depicts the forum near a millennium later in 962 CE.
wardlws built two incredible bookends inspired from different ancient civilizations. The first bookend is the Acropolis from ancient Greece while the second bookend draws inspiration from ancient Egypt.
Diego Baca rendered an awesome version of Machu Picchu. The 511 piece model includes several key features of the site, such as Temple of the Sun, the Sacred Rock and a Llama!
Doug Hughes built an incredibly large and awesome model of the Arch of Constantine. The model was built as part of a collaboration for Bricks Cascade, called "The Time of Isles". In addition to the impressive scale the arch boasts tons of cool details which are too cool for pictures.
BrickBelt built one the seven ancient wonders, the Lighthouse of Alexandria. The rendered model uses around 500 pieces and stand 9" (23cm) in height. While the build is pretty straightforward there are some nice detail elements, including the golden frogs and telescopes.
Patrick Massey built this model of a temple inspired by those of Ancient Mesoamerican civilizations. The techniques are quite simple, but effective and the lush jungle landscaping really paints the picture of how it would have been inhabited nearly a millennium ago.
