There are many aspects of building: design, block choice, colour choices, detail, depth, etc…

This build isn’t huge, but the reason it stood out for us was because of how well it incorporated all these things. The block choice was fantastic, with the slabs, stairs, rods. It allowed for a unique design and one that seemed different than most people. The colour palette was also fantastic. Everything was orange or white, and it blended so nicely. Not too much colour, and excellently highlighted your build.

Awesome job!

I like this sort of build which takes a concept that we can all relate to (or see in real life), and adds a fantastical element to it. A space gas station doesn’t seem like that much of a stretch, but I can’t deny I love looking at this build. It’s just so clean and sleek, which a sci-fi gas station should look like, to me.

Great build!

A simpler build, but one that again had many details that we liked. While the build was grey, much like first place, this build incorporated highlights to make certain parts stand out and give the build more character. I also really liked the use of signs. They added another great level of detail, especially with the actual name of the station written on them.

Nice build!

#**Introduction**

Yeah it’s that time again….

It seems every now and then I get addicted to skyscrapers, and since it’s usually a challenge that garners a lot of interest, we tend to do it now and again. So this time, let’s see what people can come up with!

Happy building!
