L.M.I.R. - Lego Modular Imperium Romanum - Project

The project will produce sets based on the ancient Roman Imperium. The sets will be modular, the players can put them together to a big (or even small) roman city. The concept's basics (requirements for all sets):

- Educational: each set based on real knowledge, realistic and scientific. This allows that the sets can be used in schools for learning.
- Artistic: each set must be impressive, attempting to appropriate the ancient art.
- Challenging: the sets must be suitable for beginners and for the advanced builders, offering a good time while creating.
and not at least
- Playable: with each set you can play, and feel as you would live in the ancient Rome.

Current Set:
L.M.I.R. - Roman Bath with Aqueduct

In ancient Rome, Thermae and balnea were facilities for bathing. Thermae usually refers to the large imperial bath complexes, while balneae were smaller-scale facilities (like this set), public or private, that existed in great numbers throughout Rome. Most Roman cities had at least one, if not many, such buildings, which were centres not only for bathing, but socializing. They were supplied with water from an adjacent river or stream, or more normally, by an aqueduct. The water could be heated by a log fire before being channelled into the hot bathing rooms.

The layout:

Entrance Hall
Apodyterium (dressing room)
Frigidarium (cold bath)
Tepidarium (warm bath)
Caldarium (hot bath)
Small Caldarium
Sudatorium (sweating room)
Small Pool
Massage/Resting room
Atrium (with large pool)

The Romans constructed numerous aqueducts to bring water from distant sources into their cities and towns, supplying public baths, latrines, fountains and private households. This set of aqudeucts are modular, each item can connect to the others (and to this bath).
Idea: you can put a straw inside the aqueduct, then it can be used as a real aqueduct.
