What am I LEGO Loving?

January 11, 2014

LEGO-st-pancras-528x350It turns out that I am not the only LEGO-loving grown up around.  Have you seen the book, Brick City, by Warren Elsmore.  He is, I assume an adult, who has recreated landmarks in LEGO.  Above is St Pancras Station.

Among other London landmarks Elsmore has also created Battersea Power Station (with flying pig), and Westminster Abbey.

London landmarks are not the only icons Elsmore has rendered in LEGO, but they are the ones featured in the Time Out London article which is my reference.

A little LEGO history from Wiki:

“In 1958, the modern brick design was developed, and it took another five years to find the right material for it, ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) polymer.Before they used ABS they used a plastic called Cellulose Acetate. The modern Lego brick was patented on 28 January 1958 and bricks from that year are still compatible with current bricks.”

  1. You should see the incredible LEGO cities at LEGOLAND in San Diego County. The cities are amazing and the water elements are great.


    • Okay!


  2. I just saw that there is a Lego Movie coming out soon. I may have to barrow a 4 year old and go see it.


    • I know – I can’t wait!
