So The Country's Gonna Be All LEGO?: Japan's Future Skyline Imagined In 1.8-Million LEGO Block Build

August 17, 2012


This is a 1.8-million LEGO block build of a futuristic version of Japan's skyline. Over 5,000 children gathered at six different centers across the country to participate in the project, and all the buildings were brought to Tokyo and connected into a giant map of Japan. Pretty cool, right? Also, who knew future Japan was gonna have so many mile-high skyscrapers? "Holy shit this is gonna be fun," I imagine Godzilla saying to himself.

Hit the jump for some closeups.






Thanks to chichi, who agrees the prettiest skyline is the sun setting over the ocean.

    I would not be surprised at all if this ended up being a reality.....that's about the only way for them to deal with the growing population there, build taller and taller buildings.

    It would be an absolute terror to live in that if it was IRL. what would be the population per city block?

    What is this? A city for ants? It would have to be at least.... 5 times this big!
