Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO Bricks

What do you get if you fuse some of the most iconic and eye-popping skyscrapers from Asia and Australia with LEGO? You get the awe-inspiring Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO® Bricks, an interactive exhibition at the Museum of Tropical Queensland that showcases architecture and design in a lively, creative space. Created by Australia’s Ryan McNaught, the only certified LEGO professional in the Southern Hemisphere, Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO® Bricks showcases 15 skyline-defining towers including Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands, Taiwan’s Taipei 101, Japan’s Tokyo Skytree, Kuala Lumpur’s twin Petronas Towers and Sydney’s own Sydney Tower. “Creating two to three-metre high versions of these iconic buildings has been an incredible challenge, pushing the almost limitless possibilities of LEGO. The results should amaze and inspire visitors of all ages,” Ryan said. Featuring over 400,000 LEGO bricks weighing more than 1,000 kilograms, the LEGO Towers of Tomorrow took more than 2,000 hours (nearly three months) to build. Visitors inspired by these awesome towers will have the chance to create their own ‘towers of tomorrow’ with over 200,000 loose LEGO bricks available in hands-on construction areas.

The team of passionate old rockers – and some young ones who they just keep around to help with the techie stuff (you know how it is!) – had been dreaming of a music fest exclusively for over 40s for many years before Townsville man Richard Fuller was famously told he was “too old to dance” at a Cold Chisel concert.
