This 1929 cover from an American speculative fiction magazine inspired Janey Cook to rebuild that fantastic sky city using Lego.
[Images: New air city by Janey Cook; photographs by Calum Tsang and Allan Bedford. Air Wonder Stories cover from Frank R. Paul’s online gallery of sci-fi cover art. More covers coming up soon, in fact, because most of them are completely ridiculous – though architectural. Meanwhile, see the Lego Escher at gravestmor and, of course, The Brick Testament].

Reminds me of Studio Ghibli’s Laputa.
scuse my unresearched reply, I think you will find similar structures in Magritte and Bullwinkle.
looks totally like some kikutake/metabolist confection.
that’s awesome…lego’s are the coolest.
