High School - Modular Design
It is about time to add a High School to the LEGO Modular buildings. This 2-story high school was inspired by 1920s-1930s architecture for school buildings. The high school is modeled after a 1930 high school in the first school district in which I taught. The school building is built wider than tall, typical of most schools, and takes up a space equivalent to 2 modular (32x32) baseplates. This is created by a space of 48x32 (1-32x32 baseplate & 1-16x32 baseplate) for the school building itself. The other 16x32 baseplate space is created by 2 possible base configurations to meet your LEGO town needs. Specifications on the layout and configurations are below.
- 4 classrooms
- Principal's office
- 4 sets of lockers
- Outside courtyard with 2 picnic tables
- 2 bicycle racks, 3 bicycles (white, blue, red)
- 6 minifigures (4 teachers, librarian and principal) + 1 skeleton for the science lab
- About 2600 pieces (a little less than the Town Hall set)
- 2 possible configurations
- Total Baseplate coverage (for either configuration) = 64x32 or the space of 2 current modulars
- 3 entrances - Main double doors, 2 symmetrical rear entrances on the first floor
2 Base Plate Configurations
- Corner Building - The 1st configuration is seen in the main picture with a corner courtyard. This includes one 16x32 baseplate to create the courtyard, which includes 2 picnic tables and 2 bicycle racks that can hold up to 4 bicylces. Bicycles are stabilized by a sloped tile piece that fits under the kickstand of the bicycle. A brick built tree finishes off this corner piece.
- End-of-a-Block - The 2nd configuration is shown as a End-of-a-Block set up with two other modular buildings locking in place behind the school. This includes two 8x32 baseplates to create the wrap around sidewalks. Also, includes a striped school bus loading zone on one of the wrap around sidewalks.
