| This was one of my entries for the New Elementary Wishbrick contest - a Brick, Modified 1 x 1 x 2/3 with Stud on Side. A big thank you to New Elementary for putting on such a fun contest and thanks to all the people who submitted their wishbrick - there were so many clever ideas and I really enjoyed looking through them and imagining what could be done with such bricks.

Builder Aido Kessler wants the future of LEGO today with the brick of their dreams, as submitted to New Elementary’s Make a Wishbrick contest. While the idea presented, a headlight brick minus its foot, is something that’s been on my wish list for longer than I can remember, that’s actually not my favorite part of this build. In an effort to zhuzh up the design, Aido added a living quarters inside a technologically advanced brick. The vignette very much feels like a LEGO-themed take on The Machine Stops by E.M. Forster, my favorite bit of science-fiction. I love the clean interior juxtaposed with the technological textures on the exterior, and the subtle hints of trans-light blue really drive home the space-age look. Now will our hero continue to inhabit his little brick-built cube, or will he break free with his new part and let his creativity run wild?
