The Market was built by Peter Furstenberg as an entry into the South African Brickfair 2019 and won first place. It features a three-storey building with a supermarket as well as an adjacent house. This entry is packed with incredible detail around every corner and promises not to disappoint.
A warm welcome this week to Gavin Beangstrom! Gavin has a passion for LEGO modular buildings and has a complete collection of all the modular buildings to date.
The model, commissioned by the LEGO Certified Store, was designed and built by Peter Furstenberg, a South African adult fan of LEGO. The model contains roughly 13750 pieces and celebrates one of Cape Town’s most iconic regions, the Bo-Kaap, characterised by its colourful houses around the district. The model contains an artist’s impression of 5 iconic houses in Wale Street, a block away from the Bo-Kaap Museum. The houses were chosen for their vibrancy and colour, capturing the colourful essence of the region.
This week, we visit Cerry-Lee, where she shares some of the themes aimed at girls. We look at a brief history of themes as well as current themes aimed at the female market.
