Architecture lego projects
Considering the construction of the actual Sydney Opera House was started in 1959 on 1st March, it seems appropriate that this week’s Throwback Thursday is all about Ryan’s versions of this Australian icon. Of course it’s even more appropriate that Ryan build the Opera House from LEGO bricks, because the original architect of the Opera […]
Back in 2013 Ryan built a LEGO model of Athen’s famed Acropolis temple complex and the iconic columned Parthenon. The huge diorama was built as part of a series of models (the first being the Colosseum) built around ancient history for Sydney University’s Nicholson Museum. The Nicholson Museum then donated the model to the Acropolis […]
It’s been an epic first week up in Brisbane for our new Wonders of the World exhibition! It was both exhilarating and slightly frightening to show all the models we’ve been working on for over a year to the public for the first time. But seeing the looks on the faces of the kids ( […]
I’m so excited to be able to finally share the news about the show we’ve been building towards for over a year! The world premiere of Wonders of the World will be in Brisbane from 23rd November. We will be there until the 14th Dec, after which we move onto our Australian tour heading to Sydney, […]
AMP commissioned me to make a model of their original building, an iconic curved office block at Sydney’s Circular Quay, and their proposed new building- a stunning modern building that’s all angled glass and gardens with a mall underneath it! You can see the old building well in this shot. The old AMP Building was […]
I’m back in sunny Townsville for the weekend! This time I’m with the Towers of Tomorrow exhibition me and my team built a few years ago, which includes some of the toughest models I’ve ever built of the many of the world’s tallest buildings! The exhibit also includes hundreds of thousands of bricks visitors can use to build their own model. So if you’re in North Queensland or heading there over the next few months, drop by and check them out!
Our latest Exhibition opens in Sydney shortly:
Sydney Living Museums presents Sydney Harbour Icons with LEGO® Bricks , a world premiere
exhibition at the Museum of Sydney from 7 November 2015.
For the first time ever you are welcome to come along and experience my complete collection of LEGO models, along with those of my colleagues the other LEGO Certified professionals who have each created a unique piece for the show.
Come and join in the fun as there is plenty of hands on activities where ill be getting you to help build some giant LEGO models and masterpieces.
Ive got a stack of new stuff never seen in public before so for your only chance to see them come along!
My first ever solo exhibition of LEGO works in conjunction with Sydney Living Museums.
Go along and see what our whole team spent many months building and working on.
This one pushed us to our limits with intricate details, complex curves and architectural geometry.
The exhibition celebrates tall and extraordinary buildings from Australia and Asia. Some are engineering head-turners while others are technical marvels.
(To be honest we are still not sure how we managed to pull off some of these buildings!)
Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO Bricks is on now at Museum of Sydney.

Its footy finals!
Head on down to the MYER emporium store in Melbourne to check out our latest mega model, the 70,000 brick LEGO MCG on grand final day.
There is lots of hidden gems in this model which took over 3 weeks to build.
Head over to my flickr Gallery for a closer look.
