Lene Rønsholt Wille, a Denmark-based designer, made this absolutely stunning Great Wall of Lego. It took her six weeks to build! She used 270,000 pieces! Can you even imagine what it would be like to play around with 270,000 Lego bricks? Heaven, I’m pretty sure.
But in actuality, it was probably hell, since each brick is the same and you’re doing the same thing over and over and over again. And over again. Multiply by 270,000 times. But in the end, you get to say you built something, that better make it worth it. You’re like a carpenter but with children’s toys.
She actually calls the wall ‘Metaphorical Horizons’ and says it can be used as a bench, desk, wall and space—which isn’t as fun as just calling it the Great Wall of Lego but what do I know. It’s located in the central hall of the World Trade centre in Amsterdam. [Colossal via Wired]
