In addition to reviewing new LEGO Architecture sets, he likes to write articles exploring technical aspects of the LEGO hobby including LEGO storage, and the LEGO color palette.

Tom has written 74 stories for Brick Architect.
Christine Coste

Please help me in welcoming Christine Coste to the Brick Architect team! She is our third writer, joining us from New Zealand.

Christine was re-introduced to LEGO through her two daughters, whose fondness for LEGO Elves, Friends, and Disney Princess sets has brightened her LEGO color palette considerably. She works as a town planner and with her husband’s background in Architecture and a shared interest in history she has had the opportunity to visit many of the world’s greatest landmarks.

Version 3.1 adds 48 new labels.
I updated LEGO Brick Labels to include 48 new labels, for a total of 1069 labels!

Version 3.1 focuses on two things: New parts released since last fall, and “common” parts which were missing from the collection. (This ended up including a lot of propeller parts, as they are quite common and were not included in the collection until now.)

Lydia Nelson

Please help me in welcoming Lydia Nelson to the Brick Architect team! She is our second new writer and I’m excited to have her joining us.

Lydia is the mother of 5 kids, and she enjoys building models from the LEGO Creator and Architecture themes. Her creative focus is to re-create LDS Temples using LEGO bricks, a project that has grown to include over 50 models! We’re excited to help her get started with blogging by writing articles for Brick Architect.

Michael Kindness

Please help me in welcoming Michael Kindness to the Brick Architect team! He is the first of several new writers that will be introduced in the coming weeks.

Michael is the father of two boys that love LEGO almost as much as he does. A sales rep for the publishing industry by day, in the evenings his focus shifts between Classic Space (his childhood favorite), Star Wars, and Architecture. While he finds sorting really satisfying, joining his local LUG has inspired him to create more MOC’s.
