New LEGO skyscraper exhibit at Seattle’s MOHAI shows off some impressive building blocks

The most impressive skyline view in Seattle is coming to the inside of the city’s Museum of History and Industry.

But what makes this “view” at MOHAI especially fun and interactive, is that it features recreations of iconic skyscrapers from all over the world, constructed in painstaking detail out of LEGO bricks.

“Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO Bricks,” a new traveling exhibition, opens Saturday and is sure to impress everyone from architecture geeks to little kids (and adults) who can’t get enough of the colorful, plastic toy.

Featuring 18 buildings built at 1:200 scale, the exhibit is the work of Ryan McNaught, one of only 21 LEGO “Certified Professionals” in the world. The Australian is known as “The Brickman,” and he and his team used more than half a million LEGO bricks and devoted thousands of hours to build the structures featured in the exhibit.

“Towers of Tomorrow” provides a look at both LEGO history and a closer examination of architectural history across the globe.

“There’s a lot to learn in working with LEGOs, particularly about design and architecture,” said MOHAI’s Devorah Romanek, chief of exhibits and head of interpretive services. “You can learn about modularity and grammar, and being additive or subtractive, analytical and logical, as well as creative. There’s all this opportunity in this play.”

The exhibit runs through Sept. 22. Watch this video detailing some of the build process.
