warren elsmore has built the london 2012 olympic park from LEGO to celebrate the games.


following text from warren elsmore

I was commissioned by the LEGO group and visit denmark to celebrate
the london olympic games and to create something truly spectacular
to promote one of denmarks’ biggest exports.​

the stadium project took 300hrs to build over a short timescale of 3 weeks.
around 250,000 bricks were used – the vast majority of which are ’1×1′ pieces
- all very small and difficult to apply!​ put on display in central london during
the games, an estimated 100,000 visitors saw the display and acted as an
attraction to the whole danish village. the exhibit especially attracted the
‘london ambassadors’ – volunteers meeting and greeting tourist,
who needed to be able to direct  global guests to ‘the lego model’.
