Im very excited to let you know that my latest LEGO sculpture has been
installed at the top of The Empire State Building in New York City!
This sculpture of the Empire State Building used about 13,000 LEGO elements and
is situated as the centerpiece of the observation deck gift shop at the top of
the building. The gift shop is closed for reconstruction until late June, but
youll be able to see the sculpture for many years after the store reopens.
Im a huge architecture nerd, so this project has been very exciting for me.
Im also a huge microscale nerd, and the scale they requested was perfect for
some classic microscale cars and people. So I went to town building all sorts
of fun little details on the street at the base of the building. ... A
double-decker NYC tour bus, a pedicab, a glass delivery truck, a Smart Car, an
articulated bus, and a 3-wheeled traffic police vehicle. I hope the micro fans
out there like some of the cars... they were fun to make. :)
