Save STATE Theatre

It is the model to represent Historical Theatres in Hong Kong "State Theatre" I built it with my friend "Mythbot" over 9 months. I take responsible for model design overall , technical adjustment. We started the project planning since from Mar 2017. My first task was to design the curve of the special roof using LDD in Mar. In mid of October , we started to build according to the real blueprint which is provided from the organizer "Walk in Hong Kong". We created lots of details to enhance the theatre , such as: Classic Tram , Leyland Truck , Local Snacks , Shops. We also built the classic seat area with 2 level : deluxe area and normal area. We use over 20 days to complete the whole model. It is meaningful, we enjoy in conservation event, we put lot of effort, use Lego bricks to build the huge model for the sake of Save the State Theatre. LEGO builder cannot control anything but we can do anything with bricks. At least , our attempt can help to raise social awareness of heritage preservation.
