The contest runs from March 1st at 12:01 am until March 31st at 11:59 pm (in your area of the world). We’ll add bookend images to the pool for a definite start/end time.

The Contest

There are two (2) categories this year!

You are welcome to enter either or both, but one entry per person in each.

Category 1: Architecture
You will have one month to build a microscale* version of a recognizable real-world building. This could be a building in your neck of the woods, one that everyone recognizes or just one that you find interesting.
* Microscale in this case is anything Bricktober-set-scale or smaller.

The building should be presented in a LEGO® Architecture style with a one-stud wide black border.

Completed model with border should not exceed a 32x32 stud footprint.
Submit one image, labelled as the name of the building, to the group pool here and include a link to a real-world image of the building.


Category 2: City Skyline
You will have one month to build a smaller than microscale* version of a recognizable real-world city skyline. This should contain between four (4) to six (6) buildings, monuments and / or landmarks that represent that city.
The skyline should be presented in a LEGO® Skyline style on a raised black platform.

Completed model should not exceed a 8x32 stud footprint.
Submit one image, labelled as the city you’re representing, to the group pool here.

Builders from around the globe are welcome to participate!


For either category, our three (3) judges will be looking for:
- likeness to the pre-existing buildings
- details translated from building to model
- interesting use of elements to make the building / details


The Rules

A plain, un-cluttered background for the image is preferable, but not mandatory.

Please tag 'Marchitecture' on your photo.

Only new builds, nothing from before March 2017.

No digital builds please, only physical.

No third party parts or custom stickers. Just pure LEGO elements.

The Prizes

One winner will be chosen from each Category based on the number of points allotted by the judges.

The winner of the Architecture Category will win a copy of the Burj Khalifa!

The winner of the Skyline City Category will win a copy of the London Skyline!

Good luck, and happy building!
