The world’s most stunning skyscrapers will be reconstructed using LEGO® Bricks at a new traveling exhibit coming to The Magic House Dec. 2.
“Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO® Bricks” features 20 skyscrapers from the United States, Australia, Asia, Canada and United Arab Emirates. The exhibit, originally from Australia, is designed to be accurate and architecturally detailed. Ryan McNaught, one of only 14 certified Lego professionals worldwide, constructed the sculptures on a 1:200 scale using more than a half million Lego bricks over a period of 2,400 hours.
North American buildings featured in the exhibit include Toronto’s CN Tower; Philadelphia’s Comcast Technology Center, Los Angeles’ Wilshire Grand Center, Chicago’s Willis Tower, Atlanta’s Bank of America Plaza, New York’s super slender skyscrapers at 111 West 75th Street, Central Park Towers, the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. Skyscrapers from Asia include Taiwan’s Taipei 101, Japan’s Tokyo Skytree, Kuala Lumpur’s twin Petronas Towers, Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands and China’s Shanghai Tower. Australian buildings include Eureka Tower in Melbourne, Infinity Tower in Brisbane and the Gold Coast’s Q1 building.
The exhibit offers visitors a unique view of some of the world’s most impressive buildings. After viewing the structures, guests are invited to add their own constructions to a futuristic Lego metropolis in a hands-on construction area filled with 200,000 loose Lego bricks.
The exhibit will be on display Dec. 2-Feb. 19 and is included with general admission to The Magic House, which is $11 per person. The Magic House is located at 516 S. Kirkwood Rd., St. Louis, MO.
