UNION CITY, Tenn. – The world’s most famous skyscrapers engineered and built out of LEGO bricks are now on display through May 5 at Discovery Park of America. “Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO Bricks” from Melbourne, Australia has arrived in Union City, making this the third time this exhibit has been on display in the U.S.
“Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO Bricks” features 20 of the world’s most astonishing skyscrapers from the U.S., Australia, Asia, Canada and the United Arab Emirates constructed with architectural detail and accuracy by Australia’s Ryan McNaught, the only certified LEGO professional in the Southern Hemisphere. He used half a million LEGO bricks and spent more than 2,400 hours constructing the buildings in the exhibit. Featured iconic buildings include New York’s Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building and Chicago’s Willis Tower.
Over 20 skyscrapers, on a scale of 1:200 and built with stunning precision and attention to detail are displayed throughout the gallery. LEGO lovers will be particularly captivated, not only by the towers, but by the thousands of LEGO bricks available for building on the open display islands. Inspired by the towers, visitors can use their imagination to build their own architectural creations.
Exhibit tickets are $4.95 with park admission.
