Virtual Lego Shed



Using Lego’s Digital Designer Software, I have built a shed. Joy is a real shed; faint amusement is a virtual shed; and unadulturated eccentricity is a virtual Lego shed. It’s an unconventional way to spend your time, but when you get into the groove of deep, left-field architectural research, you just have to ride it out and see where you end up.

Building with virtual Lego is a trade-off between the complete lack of tactile fun, and a limitless supply of bricks. It’s like Google’s SketchUp, except that when you’re done, you can click the ‘Order’ button and have your shed shipped out to you at enormous cost.

These are great times.
