Spring 2019: Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO® Bricks
Jan. 18 – May 5, 2019
Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO® Bricks features 20 of the world’s most astonishing skyscrapers from the United States of America, Australia, Asia, Canada and United Arab Emirates constructed with breathtaking architectural detail and accuracy by Australia’s Ryan McNaught, the only certified LEGO professional in the Southern Hemisphere.
The exhibition, opening at Discovery Park of America on January 18, 2019, includes some of the most iconic and eye-popping towers from across North America including 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 111 West 75th Street, Central Park Towers and the city’s famous landmarks, Empire State Building and Chrysler Building.
Skyscrapers across Asia featured in the exhibition include Taiwan’s Taipei 101, Japan’s Tokyo Skytree, Kuala Lumpur’s twin Petronas Towers, Singapore’s extra-ordinary Marina Bay Sands and the amazing, self-contained city that is China’s Shanghai Tower. Australia is represented by the Eureka Tower in Melbourne, Infinity Tower in Brisbane and the Gold Coast’s Q1 building.
On a scale of 1:200 and built with stunning precision and attention to detail, the LEGO® towers offer visitors a birds-eye view of these extra-ordinary buildings and are just as impressive in model size. Visitors, young and old, can create their own ‘tower of tomorrow’ from over 200,000 loose LEGO bricks in hands-on construction areas and add their creations to a steadily rising futuristic LEGO metropolis inside the exhibition.
Admission for ages 4 and up: $4.95
