LEGO Ideas of the Week: High School - LEGO Modular

High School – Modular Design
It is about time to add a High School to the LEGO Modular buildings. This 2-story high school was inspired by 1920s-1930s architecture for school buildings. The high school is modeled after a 1930 high school in the first school district in which I taught. The school building is built wider than tall, typical of most schools, and takes up a space equivalent to 2 modular (32×32) baseplates. This is created by a space of 48×32 (1-32×32 baseplate & 1-16×32 baseplate) for the school building itself. The other 16×32 baseplate space is created by 2 possible base configurations to meet your LEGO town needs. Specifications on the layout and configurations are below.

Contains
•4 classrooms
•Library
•Principal’s office
•Restroom
•4 sets of lockers
•Outside courtyard with 2 picnic tables
•2 bicycle racks, 3 bicycles (white, blue, red)
•6 minifigures (4 teachers, librarian and principal) + 1 skeleton for the science lab

Specifications
•About 2600 pieces (a little less than the Town Hall set)
•2 possible configurations
•Total Baseplate coverage (for either configuration) = 64×32 or the space of 2 current modulars
•3 entrances – Main double doors, 2 symmetrical rear entrances on the first floor

2 Base Plate Configurations
1.Corner Building – The 1st configuration is seen in the main picture with a corner courtyard. This includes one 16×32 baseplate to create the courtyard, which includes 2 picnic tables and 2 bicycle racks that can hold up to 4 bicylces. Bicycles are stabilized by a sloped tile piece that fits under the kickstand of the bicycle. A brick built tree finishes off this corner piece.
2.End-of-a-Block – The 2nd configuration is shown as a End-of-a-Block set up with two other modular buildings locking in place behind the school. This includes two 8×32 baseplates to create the wrap around sidewalks. Also, includes a striped school bus loading zone on one of the wrap around sidewalks.
