The Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Theme Building opened in 1961. This iconic building has appeared as an establishing shot in almost every movie and television series set in LA ever since.
Although it looks like a futuristic control tower (or a spaceship) the building has always actually been a resturant, originally with a rotating dining area which gave you a 360 degree view of the airport whilst you dined. The building was refurbished between March 2007 and June 2010 at a cost of $12.3M. Which included the addition of a tuned mass damper designed to absorb violent earthquake shocks.
This model is intended to be part of the LEGO Architecture range. The base of the LAX Theme Building is 170 x 170 mm. Tank track is used to create the distinctive screen wall, wrapping it around the large circular base of the building maintains its circular shape. Tansparent pieces are used on the four support legs to slim down the thickness of the leg structures. The complete model has 341 parts.
Such a well known building should do well in the Architecture range and its unique spaceship looks may even appeal to people who would not normally purchase an Architecture model.
Thank you for looking, please support and leave your comments.
