World's Largest LEGO Structures
LEGOs came around in the 1940s, and a lot of people fell in love with them. Both adults and kids couldn't get enough of the beautiful structures. The fact that these toy rocks were interlocking was able to be up great creativity and wonder in many people.
Now, LEGO has grown to encompass different aspects of our lives in their different structures. You could experience your movies via LEGOs. You are allowed to couple a number of creative structures together, thereby increasing one's creativity. A lot of engineers grew up loving engineering because of LEGO.
We will look at the largest LEGO structures ever made. These structures will blow your mind away. Experts came together to couple them.
1. A full-sized functional home
Well, like the name states, an engineering wizard decided to use all his thinking faculty to create this. There is a great chance that you know of James May, Top Gear engineering whiz.
He created a house that one can live in, and it is large. Do you know how large a real house is? This is how this LEGO house created by James May is. The house was made with more than three million LEGO bricks in the year, 2009.
This house has a toilet, a shower, a sink and so on, and all of them worked well. Unfortunately, it was turned down weeks later. We wish we can live in a house like that. Won't it be an awesome idea?
2. The Lord of the Rings' Rivendell
There is hardly anyone that has not heard of the Lord of The Rings. It was one of the best book series and movie series that we ever watched. I couldn't get enough of it, and I wish that it could be resurrected once more.
This was what Alice Finch and David Frank, LEGO enthusiasts decided to do. As fans of both the Lord of the Rings and LEGO, they divided to create an Elvin realm. According to the creator, they had an Elvin Realm that they fancied in the Lord of the Rings series, Rivendell. They made this in 2013, and it was marvelous. To get the work done, they had to couple over 200,000 bricks together.
When they were done, we had no choice but to marvel at how awesome their details were. The Elven figurines were tiny and so realistic. I would have thought that they were real. What about plant life? It was one in town. For fans of The Lord of The Rings and LEGO, there is a great chance that you will love this.
Taj Mahal is one of the wonders of the world, and it has exceptional beauty. This is a memorable site in Asia that many tourists troop in to go and see.

Can we just clap for the LEGOLAND Dubai for creating this marvel?

It was erected on the Observation Point in London's South Bank, and everyone that went by had to stop and take a picture.

It is no news that LEGO regularly employs experts to create extraordinary structures and this was one of them.
When this structure was done, it swallowed 5 million LEGO bricks. It was said to weigh about 45,000 pounds. This is far larger than the allowed weight for a number of small aircraft.
The team put a lot of engineering concepts into play. They made the jet to be able to be traveled in. It can withstand a large amount of damage and stress. It toes the line of what the creators of the original model had in mind and had created.
