The idea

Why building the Frauenkirche Dresden with LEGO?

  • Massive media coverage while the reopening phase in autumn 2005.
  • The new and old bricks from the facade look like tan and darkgrey LEGO bricks.
  • A mirco version was build by Oliver (olivgrau). Cool colors but too small ..?
  • The tower crane was build by Bernd (Dr. Brixel). That would be a good starting point for a construction site MOC? But before building a construction site at a late phase you need to build the building. So I started with the building …
  • The Frauenkirche seems to be a complex project for a LEGO model. But I couldn't find any "no-gos". The baroque facade did show some arches where LEGO arches could be used and there might be an idea for the dome somehow.
  • The internet provides numberous research opportunities.
  • When I was in Dresden in March for a short business trip I decided to build the LEGO model.

Building instructions and part lists

Why doesn't building instructions exist?
