Here’s a Throwback Thursday especially for our Queensland fans! Back in 2011 Ryan was commissioned to build models of the planned new Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, later renamed to Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital. At the time Brisbane had 2 aging Children’s Hospitals and both were to be closed and replaced by the new hospital, so […]
mrkFor this week we’re flying back in time to the 3rd LEGO® build we have done for Sydney University’s Nicholson Museum- LEGO® Pompeii! Being a museum piece we couldn’t show the city being destroyed, because we wouldn’t be able to show the history of the city, so we chose to depict the city the moment […]
To celebrate the opening of Wonders of the World in Ryan’s hometown of Melbourne we figured we’d throwback to one of Ryan’s most memorable Melbourne models- the legendary MCG! Ryan’s huge version of the Melbourne Cricket Ground actually holds the Australian record for the most number of LEGO minifigures in one model – at well over […]
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:
