Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO® BRICKS features astonishing skyscrapers from Asia and Australia constructed from LEGO bricks with breathtaking architectural detail and accuracy by the Southern Hemisphere’s only certified LEGO professional, Australia’s Ryan McNaught.

The exhibition includes some of the most iconic and eye-popping towers from across Asia including Taiwan’s Taipei 101, Japan’s Tokyo Skytree, Kuala Lumpur’s twin Petronas Towers, Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands, and the amazing and highly anticipated self-contained city that will be China’s Shanghai Tower.

Australian skyscrapers featured in the exhibition include the Infinity Tower (Brisbane), Q1 (Gold Coast), Eureka Tower (Melbourne) and Central Park Tower (Perth), along with Sydney’s own skyline-defining skyscraper Sydney Tower. The exhibition also features Sydney’s towers of tomorrow in the form of the ‘still under construction’ buildings of the Barangaroo South complex.

As well as standing in awe of the LEGO skyscrapers, some over three metres in height, students will be inspired to create their own ‘towers of tomorrow’ with over 200,000 loose LEGO bricks featured in hands-on construction areas.

Students will be limited only by their imagination as they add their creations to a steadily rising futuristic LEGO metropolis inside the exhibition.

Risk Assessment is available here.
