Hello, I'm Uniquelego. It's a great honor to introduce my work "Roman Museum" today.
I made this work to realize a new attempt to break the framework of existing Lego products. It was a shame that the existing Lego products didn't have a proper museum product.
This piece is exactly 3000 pieces and consists of 4 stories in total. Each floor has a variety of spaces, including exhibition rooms, chief room, meeting room, conservation room, toilets, garden, stairs, and manual elevator. I'll introduce you in more detail below. Then let's go with me to the museum where ancient Roman cultural heritages were displayed!
* This is a completely imaginary piece of work, inspired by no real architecture.
* All minifigures used only genuine legos without custom parts.
1) Your model (what it is)?
This work is a museum that exhibits ancient Roman cultural heritage. Roman architecture on the first floor and Roman culture on the second floor are displayed. There are ramps and elevators to implement the barrier free! Now I will introduce the components of each floor.

First Floor (Architecture of Rome)

* The building can be divided into each floor by module system!
2) Why you built it?
The first and most important reason is that I wanted to make a new concept. Why hasn't the museum that exhibited ancient relics been released as a product so far? My work started with this question. I felt that the cultural heritage of Rome, which is loved by many fans, and Lego, which is loved by many children, could be combined to make more Lego fans. And I put this into practice without hesitation.
Secondly, I wanted to make great decorations through Lego's works that focused on artistry. Decorating one's own living space using props is called "home decoration." Therfore, I wanted to make a work that can be easily used for home decoration. Usually, home decoration has used paintings, sculptures, crafts, or design elements, but recently, more and more Lego products are used for home decoration, which have a similar level of beauty to existing interior products but can be placed on the cabinet. Moreover, if it's an ornament with a theme that everyone loves like this one, it'll be even more appropriate. That's why I made this work in 32x32 studs that can be displayed in the house.
Third, because I wanted to express my unique world of works. I'm always interested in breaking the boundaries of something existing and mixing the two to create something new. Especially, I like works based on cultural heritage that I am interested in. Destroy anything, create anything. Just like this one!
3) Why you believe it would make a great LEGO set?
First of all, this work is an ornament that can be highly liked by many Lego fans. By utilizing the cultural heritage of Rome, which has many lovers, it has increased popularity and aestheticity through beautiful roofs and gardens. In addition, mini figures dressed in ancient Roman costumes are provided. So this work has a wide range of attractions that can attract fans of Western history, fans of Lego, and people who like props. I hope that this broadness will make this work a great Lego set.
Also, this work has elements of fine-grained description and appropriate size together. Recently, many Lego products aimed at AFOL are over 4,000 pieces of super-large products. The Colosseum has over 9,000 pieces. These large products have strengths in detailed descriptions, but they cause a lack of space to assemble and display works. However, this work has been reborn as a work that has detailed descriptions and can be displayed anywhere in the house without any burden. AFOL wants a complex piece that can satisfy both the need for fine-grained description and the right size. I hope that this complexity will make this work a great Lego set.
