Big Ideas: Brick Walk

Every so often a LEGO® Ideas project comes along with deserves a little more of a focus beyond the regular Big Ideas Showcase. One such project is Brick Walk by Lepralego. I was having my usual poke around LEGO Ideas last week and spotted Brick Walk. I thought that looks like a street in Leicester called New Walk so hit support and carried on browsing. Then the project appeared on my local newspaper’s website, so decided to go back and have a closer look and it turns out it looks like New Walk because it’s inspired by the famous Leicester route. New Walk is a Georgian era pedestrian promenade and even to this day remains largely unchanged, making it an amazing street to walk down. It’s also home to the New Walk Museum, which inspired David Attenborough to become a naturalist. New Walk has also inspired LEGO fan Marcos Garavelli, who lives in Spain but often visits his sister who is studying at LEGO University. The project does an impressive job of capturing the magic of the location, which has inspired it and transforms the essence of the street’s buildings into a Modular-style build. As BricksFanz is based in Leicester, it’s only fitting we highlight this lovely project. Hit the link below to show your support.

  1. Really nice. Supporting (2842), but I would have preferred it is it had a back as opposed to being permanently open.
    Mind you, that would’ve made it into a modular contender and LEGO has never approved and likely never will approve a modular building in Ideas.

  2. What a lovely building. I like the way you can see into the house without taking off the different levels to do so.
    and its for the elderly folk as well. Very appealing.

    Would love to buy the instructions if they are available.
