Brickman Cities Powered by LEGO® CITY is coming to Melbourne this June at Scienceworks!
We loved Brickman Cities Powered by LEGO® CITY when it came to Sydney earlier this year, the kids loved the impressive builds and building their own Lego masterpiece. We spent almost two hours at the event and enjoyed our time there. Now it’s time for Melbourne to enjoy it! So head to Scienceworks this June with your LEGO fans!
Created by the LEGO® Masters judge, Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught. The experience has been exclusively curated and built by McNaught and his expert team and opens at Scienceworks Melbourne on Saturday 15 June and runs through until August 4.
Showcasing five of the world’s most iconic cities at different time periods in history, visitors can trace each city’s evolution all the way from 1000AD to today in a fun, educational and immersive way.
At the centre of this new interactive experience is a 3m x 4m scale model of Lower Manhattan, built entirely in white LEGO® pieces with 3D stories of New York projected directly onto them. Using cutting-edge technology of UHD 4K projectors, visitors are taken on a journey from the First People’s villages right through to present day.
More than 1,900 hours and 1 million LEGO® bricks were needed to build Brickman Cities powered by LEGO® CITY. Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught and the creative team spent a further 250 hours developing sophisticated 3D projections to bring the hero city of New York to life.
Budding builders itching to get their hands on some LEGO® bricks can do so in the interactive master build zone home to half a million LEGO® bricks where they can build their vision of a LEGO® CITY of tomorrow. Brickman Cities also features a brand-new collaboration with LEGO® CITY, an entire wall showcasing the history of LEGO® CITY, including CITY Fire Stations from decades ago.
McNaught hopes the interactive experience will encourage visitors to learn and play whilst also enjoying large scale sculptures. “Brickman Cities brings to life the rich histories of the world’s greatest cities like never before and I hope visitors will find it both informative and fun. I can’t wait to see young LEGO® enthusiasts take what they have learnt and use their imagination to create their own LEGO® CITY of tomorrow,” says McNaught.
