LEGO Crawler Town

Who says the end of civilization has to be totally drab? Dave DeGobbi’s massive eco-punk crawler city brightens up the post-apocalypse, looking like a Mardi Gras float designed by Master Blaster himself.

Its started out as going to be a steam-punk land dreadnought/battleship but evolved into a roaming city where self sustainability and Eco efficiency became the theme. I ended up calling it “Eco-punk” due to its Steamy inspired roots.

Now I want to build my own LEGO city of future – maybe some sort of scale model of an arcology

Obviously, this is going to take a lot of legos to build – so if you have any sitting around gathering dust, let me know…

And Legos are not the only toys being used to enact visions of future urban environments: Marc Gauthier » Blog Archive » Simcity + Arcology

The 400 Blows

zerode

is an over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, cinéaste, and former poet. Raised in San Francisco on classic film, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in coffee shops with his laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.

 

What's in a name... The handle "zerode" is a contraction of Zéro de Conduite, the title of Jean Vigo's 1933 movie masterpiece about schoolboy rebellion.
