World’s First Lego Colosseum Made of 200,000 Bricks

Wow, the level of detail in this is amazing! Certified Lego builder Ryan McNaught has created the world’s first Lego Colosseum. Using 200,000 Lego bricks, 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. Made 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.

The Colosseum is ”the most technically challenging thing I’ve ever built,” McNaught told The Sydney Morning Herald. ”I’ve really got a new appreciation for the Romans and how they made things. For me, the challenge of making something oval-shaped out of square bricks was mind-boggling.”
