Barangaroo in Bricks
An exciting large-scale LEGO® model of Sydney’s future harbour precinct, Barangaroo South, has been unveiled at the world premiere of The Towers of Tomorrow exhibition presented by Sydney Living Museums at the Museum of Sydney.
On Saturday 13 December Barangaroo South was excited to have its final vision be brought to life in the form of LEGO® bricks at The Towers of Tomorrow exhibition.
The Southern Hemisphere’s only certified LEGO® professional, one of 12 in the world, Ryan McNaught and his team spent over 2,300 hours creating a colourful and playful three metres high model of what Barangaroo South will look like once completed. It stands proudly along some of the other major towers both from Australia and within Asia, including the likes of Taiwan’s Taipei 101, Japan’s Tokyo Skytree and Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands.
Ryan himself described what he has achieved as “by far the biggest job I’ve ever faced and certainly the most fun”. Fun also being an aspect of the exhibition, there is a hands-on public construction zone with 200,000 loose bricks, where children and adults alike can build to their hearts content.
The Towers of Tomorrow exhibition runs from Saturday 13 December 2014 until Sunday 19 April 2015, after which it will tour the home cities of the various buildings featured. Tickets: $15 Adults, $45 Family (4 people), children 2 years and under free.
