WORLD PREMIERE ‘BRICKMAN CITIES’ LEGO® POP UP EXHIBITION ADDS SESSIONS UNTIL 10 FEBRUARY
Brickman Cities powered by LEGO® CITY is the latest creation from Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught, who has revealed his most detailed and advanced pop up exhibition to date.
The brand-new Brickman Cities powered by LEGO® CITY is housed in a purpose-built pop up structure at The Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park. Due to sold-out sessions since opening, the interactive exhibition will now add additional sessions and open at 09:30am every day until Sunday 10 February 2019. Tickets are available from via www.ticketek.com.au
Brickman Cities focuses on some of the world’s greatest cities – Dubai, London, New York, Sydney and Tokyo – with Brickman’s trademark cut-away detailed models representing three different stages of each city’s history, from 1000AD up to the present day and shows how each has evolved and grown. Every person that comes along then builds a new version of that city and what they think it will look like in the future!
Brickman Cities continues to feature Brickman’s trademark interactive build experiences that are hugely popular with young and older LEGO® fans alike combined with new cutting-edge technology to advance the experience.
The centrepiece of Brickman Cities is a 3m x 4m 1:600 scale model of Lower Manhattan, New York, built entirely from white LEGO® bricks to enable 3D stories of the city to be projected directly onto them using UHD 4K projectors. The 3D story of Lower Manhattan takes visitors from the days of the First People’s villages amongst the swamps of the River Delta right up until the present day.
And if that wasn’t enough LEGO® fun, the Brickman Cities exhibition will feature 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.
Part WOW factor, part educational, Brickman Cities took over 1,500 hours to build and used over 900,000 LEGO® bricks, with the team spending a further 250 hours developing sophisticated 3D projections that bring the hero city, New York to life.
“To integrate 3D projection technology with bricks like we have is something I never thought was even possible, let alone for it to tell such a cool story. We’ve taken education by stealth to a whole new level, imagine LEGO® bricks telling a story, that’s what we have been able to achieve. People around the world have seen amazing projections on buildings, imagine being able to project and tell stories on a whole city!!! What we’ve been able to do is mind bending”, says Ryan McNaught.
