DA3: World Court Building
DA3 DIPLO Building Challenge
About this creation
The following is the Empire of Brewtopia's architectural model for the future World Court Building.

The specification states that the building should be an "old structure," so our architects went with classical styling. Given the World Court's arctic location, we used government buildings from cold-weather provinices, like Quebec, as inspiration. Thus, the top of the building is a relatively steeply sloped tin roof. The building has a grand entryway and rotunda typical of stately government offices.

To approach to World Court building, one must walk up a pathway, pass under the Scales of Justice sculpture, and then proceed past the botanical garden.

Flanking this front pathway to the right are the ruins of an ancient Druid monument known as Steinhenge. It is believed that the founders of Brewtopia are direct descendants of the builders of this monument.

To the left of the entry is a man-made lagoon that is home to an orca, an animal that is definitely at home in the arctic climate where the World Court building is to be located.

Flanking the World Court building is an air defense battery that would make a flight over Hanoi in 1968 look like a walk in the park. It is the ultimate "no fly" zone.

We hope that the citizens of the world favor this design. If you like it please vote for us.

Quoting Stuart Lucas Clean and stylish, this is a seriously strong contender. And the dolphin pushes it over the top :-)
Thanks. Given that it is very traditional, it might not be viewed as creative as some of the other entries in this category, but I tried to inject a little more creativity in with the orca and the ruins.

Quoting Jack Sparrow Love it! This has many elements that are just so great. Again the classical architectural style is awesome, plus having the whale leaping from the water is a nice touch. :-)
The classical architecture style is borrowed a little from my capitol building. I'm more comfortable with that style than some of the more modern styles I've seen for other MOCs in this category. The leaping whale was the last thing I could come up with after failing on several attempts to build a four-legged beast.

Quoting Sam Sanister Upside-down umbrellas for scales, and an anti-aircraft umbrella for the sky...
well said. I guess that's one way to look at it. :-)

Quoting Master Shifu Leo J Air defense batteries and orca FTW!
Thanks. I had a feeling the orca might be well received. It's a lot easier to make one look good, rather than some four-legged beast.

Quoting Nick Barrett That is one classy build! Beautiful, and a fitting home for the WC. Buckingham Palace, eat your heart out.
Thanks. I definitely went traditional with this one, but tried to put a little bit of the goofy in as well.

Quoting BATOH rossi the jump of the orca is a touch of class ... fantastic Mark!
Thanks. I wanted to show the whole orca, so I had to have it breaching. I'm glad you think it looks good.

Quoting Tom's MOCs Once again you made me chuckle, now with "Steinhenge"
Thanks. I kept most of the build fairly serious, but I wanted to inject a little Brewtopian humor with at least one of the features.

Quoting W Navarre Excellent! I love the capitol building and the fancy architecture, and also the figures work quite nicely!
Thanks. I was surprised by how well the figures looked when I plunked them down in the scene. They definitely add a lot to it.

Quoting Clayton Marchetti Beautiful building! Love the front entrance. I like the Stonehenge like structure, nice touch. Cool killer whale too. Outstanding!
Thanks. I tried to go as traditional as possible with the entrance. I was surprised to find out just how many of the world's supreme judicial buildings follow the pattern of this type of entrance. There is far less variation than I would have thought.

Quoting Seaman SPb That's how I imagined this building )
Me, too, obviously. At first, I was tempted to go with a more present-day architectural style, like you might find in some of the UN buildings, but after reading the spec again, I noticed that it referred to the World Court as an "old building," so I kept the style classic.

Quoting Keith Goldman General B. your World Court Building is specifications accurate and the orca was an unexpected delight. Good luck with the voters!
Thanks. The orca was actually the result of my realizing how difficult it would be to do a brick-built land animal at this scale. I started by trying to build a woolly mammoth, but wasn't happy with how it looked.

Quoting Patrick Boyle That's remarkable! Love the little dresses, and of course Steinhenge and the orca! Bravo!
Thanks. Those dresses ended up looking better than I expected. I wanted to go with something other than just a basic microfigure.

Quoting Werewolff Studios Once again Mark, absolutely stellar work! The Steinhenge ruin is brilliant, and the architecture that's gone into the main building is breath taking as well. Great stuff!
Thanks. I'll admit to borrowing some of the architectural style for the main building from my own capitol building, but the scale is definitely different.

Quoting Zach Sweigart Mark this is stellar work. I love the stonhenge building and free willy.
Thanks. The Steinhenge idea came to me in a beer-driven moment of inspiration. I was going to go with some kind of Mayan pyramid before that.
