Urbicus, meaning "of the city" in Latin, is a series of innovative 3D wall sculptures created using advanced aerial drones, Lego bricks, and computer components. Each wall sculpture is painstakingly constructed from thousands of white and tranparent bricks and components to create a 3D city in miniature.  Works are then coated in a heavy layer of UV resin allowing some elements to be submerged while others gently protrude through the surface.
