First launched in 2019
Our latest LEGO® brick experience focuses on some of the world’s greatest Cities, explores their history with LEGO® bricks and then invites you to build them into the future with millions of LEGO® bricks! With this show we’ve really pushed the envelope and built something very different that combines classic fun Brickman models with cutting edge technology. This experience is a smaller, more intimate and immersive one than our other exhibitions, with a focus put on learning and play rather than large scale sculptures.
Brickman Cities experience features for the first-time ever, a brand-new collaboration with LEGO® CITY – an entire wall devoted to showcasing the history of LEGO® CITY, with CITY Fire Stations from decades ago. This interactive master builder zone offers kids the opportunity to get hands-on with over half a million LEGO® bricks, become the heroes of LEGO® CITY and spark their creativity and build the LEGO® CITY of tomorrow.
The centrepiece of the new experience is a 3m x 4m 1:600 scale model of Lower Manhattan, and is built entirely in white LEGO pieces so we can 3-D project stories of New York directly onto them with UHD 4K projectors. The story takes visitors from the days of the First People’s villages amongst the swamps of the river delta right up until the present day.
Around Manhattan we have 4 of great cities of the world; London, Tokyo, Dubai and Sydney. Each City is represented with 3 huge skyscrapers as well as 3 different stages of their history, from 1000 AD right up to the present day and show how each city has evolved and grown. Each City has hundreds of thousands of LEGO bricks for YOU to build what you think that city will look like in the future!
Part WOW factor, part educational, Brickman Cities took over 2,000 hours to build and used over 600,000 LEGO® bricks, with the team spending a further 250 hours developing sophisticated 3D projections that bring the hero city, New York to life.
This new kind of LEGO® learning experience premiered at a purpose-built structure at The Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park Sydney in January 2019, which we followed up with a fantastic run at The WA Maritime Museum in Fremantle Perth. Most recently it has had an amazing 4 month stay at Melbourne’s Scienceworks museum!
