Collaborative builds and innovators galore
Issue 4 of Bricks Culture magazine continues to explore the world of LEGO and its role within modern pop culture. As more individuals adopt this medium as a form of expression we discover bonds are being formed, spawning the most amazing collaborative builds.
This issues cover, showcases the amazing work of the Arvo brothers and how they have taken their Alien model to the next level, by producing it as a book. Prolific builder Simon Liu looks at community builds and shares his love for science fiction while David Alexander Smith conducts an collaborative experiment by asking three builders to create one model. This is without the knowledge of what the other is building – an amazing outcome I am sure you will agree.
When it comes to pioneering builders this issue is not in short supply as we visit the home of OrionPax and delve through his tv inspired creations. Including giant transformers, terminators and realistic inspector gadget model. We catch up with former LEGO designer and space aficionado Bjarne Panduro Tveskov before visiting Alaska to discover the Bionicle creations of Breann Sledge.
There’s more inspiration from the likes of Chris McVeigh and Cole Blaq while James Pegrum gives us another lesson from history.

My first impression of taking the magazine out of the packaging is that it’s hefty. It’s made of a heavier stock paper than typical magazines so you get a premium feel when you hold it. Just flipping through, you get this snap from pages which I appreciate since I don’t have many magazines that are comparable to it.
After reading through it, you get a different vibe as from other LEGO magazines. There’s no reviews or tips on how to build something. What you get are stories about different builders and what they’ve done so far to get to where they are at now in their LEGO careers. Some of the people featured in this issue of Bricks Culture include Fairy Bricks, Harley Quin (InkBlot Photo), and Paul Lee, just to name a few.
One of the articles that I enjoyed was the one about the early beginnings of LEGO Space: Building the Future and the challenges Peter Reid and Tim Goddard went through before … Continue
