I have written about Legos before, and I consider them the best toy of all time.
And I’m sure we’ve all seen elaborate constructions built completely from Legos.
But the story I just read on NPR about a 12-year-old boy who builds German football stadiums using Legos added another twist to the awesomeness of these building bricks.
Joe Bryant, who lives in West Sussex, England, has built more than a dozen models without access to design plans or blueprints, asking fans to send him photos of the stadiums if he has not visited the stadium himself.
He estimates that his most complex works take between 5,000 and 6,000 tiny bricks and about six weeks to build, putting in one to two hours per day.
The final results are so impressive that several teams have asked if they can incorporate them in permanent displays, which pleases Bryant to no end, knowing that his structures will live on.
Here’s a recent interview with Bryant on the BBC breakfast show:
The story reminds me a bit of the nine-year-old who builds photo mosaics using Rubiks cubes.
Impressive young men to say the least…
