From ancient Rome to Harry Potter, creative individuals meticulously use LEGO bricks to create mind blowing scale models. And now, one of the most anticipated pieces of contemporary architecture to open its doors this year, the Elbphilharmonie concert hall in Hamburg, gets the LEGO treatment.

LEGO sculptor Brick Monkey recreated Herzog & de Meuron's masterpiece in stunning detail. Using 20,000 pieces, the model also opens up to reveal the concert hall's interior. Brick Monkey spent about 110 hours on the model, which measures approximately 4 feet long (1.2 meters) and 1.2 feet (1 meter) tall, while weighing about 55 pounds (25 kilograms).

Incredibly detailed, he's masterfully recreated the building's signature undulating roof, as well populated the terraces and interiors with LEGO concertgoers. Impressively, the sides and top detach for easy transportation. We can't help but think that star architects Herzog & de Meuron would be pleased to know their work has been immortalized with LEGO pieces, joining the ranks of other famous architectural monuments.

Brick Monkey's LEGO architecture model of the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg took 110 hours to complete and used 20,000 LEGO bricks.
