A hugely popular exhibition featuring some of the most iconic landmarks in the world immortalised in LEGO is coming to Dundee.
Verdant Works will soon host Brick City, a display by author and artist Warren Elsmore featuring more than 50 models of famous structures from across the globe created out of the construction toys.
Among the landmarks immortalised in LEGO are the Colosseum, the Arc de Triomphe, London’s St Pancras Station, the Trevi Fountain and even the Forth Bridge.
And re-creations of local buildings including the V&A, Dens Park and Tannadice will also be included in the exhibit.
Some of the models are made up of thousands of LEGO bricks.
Visitors of all ages will also be given the chance to make their own creations in the play area.
Gill Poulter, director of heritage and exhibitions at Dundee Heritage Trust, said that the arrival of Brick City would herald in a “vibrant and exciting programme of associated events aimed at all ages including a schools initiative, workshops for toddlers and teenagers and a late night event for adults who love LEGO”.
She added: “We’re excited about the extra elements we’re bringing to the exhibition, which is sure to be a highlight on Dundee’s calendar for 2018.
“Dundee Heritage Trust is thrilled to be welcoming Warren Elsmore’s iconic Brick City exhibition to the High Mill at Verdant Works and we’re extremely grateful for the support from Stewart Milne Homes and the Culture and Business Fund Scotland that has made this possible.”
Managing director at Stewart Milne Homes John Low said: “We’re pleased to be supporting the fantastic Brick City tour and think it will be a great addition to Dundee, which is already recognised for its architecture and design.
“LEGO is a brilliant way to capture the imagination of people at all ages, showcasing what can be created with just a few bricks.
“It also gets young people thinking about architecture and design and as part of our sponsorship we are going to be working with a local primary school and challenging pupils to come up with their own designs.”
The exhibition will be in the High Mill at Verdant Works from September 8 to November 11.
