The World's First Lego Colosseum by Ryan McNaughtJuxtapoz // Friday, 13 Jul 2012
We actually reallly like the size here in the construction of the world's first Lego Colosseum, created by certified Lego builder, Ryan McNaught. Over 200.000 bricks were needed to create this Roman scene and structure, and you even get the outdoor pavillions and walkways with gladiators and rulers surrounding the great Colosseum. As MMM reports, "the model is presented in cross-section with half in its present day ruined form and half as it was when Rome's original Colosseum was built, circa 80 AD. Built for the University of Sydney, it's currently on view at Nicholson Museum in Melbourne, Australia, until January 2013. Truly, it's Lego architecture at its finest."
