New York Skyline Mosaic

Name of Model: New York, New York
Created by: Eric Harshbarger
Found at: http://ericharshbarger.com/lego/nyc_skyline.html
Details:
Here's one of Eric Harshbarger's mosaics. This one is a bit unusual in that it is made with plates in a studs-out fashion (close up). This provides better resolution than using bricks in a studs-up fashion, but it's not as good resolution-wise as using plates in a studs-up fashion. For those of you not familiar with Harshbarger, he uses a java program of his own design called Pixelego to give him "instructions" for his mosaics. I'm not one to count that as cheating though - it's much more egregious that some buildings were moved to make the image more interesting. In any case, this is another beautiful mosaic from one of the greats of LEGO building.

From reading the above entry, we thought you might also be interested in knowing about our project, Building Asia Brick By Brick. A collaboration between ArtAsiaPacific magazine and People's Architecture Foundation, Building Asia Brick By Brickis a two year-long landmark cultural and educational experience featuring original architectural models made by leading architects from Asia and the Pacific using custom kits of white LEGO ® bricks. They are made with the intent that the models should be exhibited and auctioned to raise awareness about architectural preservation in Asia.The project is currently touring China this year before culminating in New York in 2008.

Building Asia Brick By Brick has just wrapped its presentation in Guangzhou and is now opening in Shanghai as part of the Get It Louder! festival. Please check out our regularly updated website (www.aapmag.com/brickbybrick/) for more information and on-site pictures of the exhibition and our educational workshops teaching children how to create with LEGO. We have images of pretty awesome LEGO architecture models! And if you want to see the high res versions of them, we can always send them to you too.
