Remember when we spent our summer vacations and free time after school fiddling around with LEGO blocks, and sometimes painfully stepping on them with our feet? Fun times, right? But, LEGO is no more considered child’s play! Master builders, artists, and LEGO enthusiasts all over the world are creating impressive LEGO builds that’ll blow your minds away. And my favorite type of LEGO builds is mindblowing architecture! These architectural constructions are a result of hours of dedication, attention to detail, hard work, and creativity. They can be considered works of art, and I love scrolling through these creations, admiring them, and feeling an intense surge of satisfaction at their perfection. And, we’ve curated the best of the lot for you to drool and go gaga over!
Using over 100,000 LEGO pieces, designer Ekow Nimako imagines the Kumbi Saleh 3020 CE a Ghanaian metropolis 1000 years in the future. This artwork is the centerpiece for his exhibition titled Building Black Civilizations and showcases details like nothing you have ever seen before, almost reminiscent of the Game of Thrones title sequence!
Speaking of Game of Thrones-esque magnanimous scenes, Rocco Buttliere, a Chicago-based architect has displayed his detailed skill and love of architecture with this Purple Forbidden City! Borrowing from the historic ages of the Chinese royalty, the design features a Hall of Supreme Harmony. Speaking of building this design, the designer says, “Finally, and probably most instructive to myself and perhaps others during this time of uncertainty, are a particular few words of a famous proverb by Laozi which kept me looking forward during this four-month undertaking: A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
This LEGO creation is basically Cyberpunk architecture come to life! The attention to detail, use of multiple colors, and towering height make this structure a complete eyecatcher. LEGO fanatic @geng_3dboy even added miniatures cars and buses to his work of art. I love the automobile detailing!
Benedek Lampert’s love for photography and LEGO can be seen in this autumnal scene that brings a mystical forest to life. In fact, so vivid is the image, it could easily belong to one of the scenes from JRR Tolkien’s epic novels! And you know, those little adventurers walking towards the mystical tree could easily be the ring bearers on their quest!
LEGO’s largest-ever set is an accurate and mind-boggling replica of The Colosseum! The intricate design, the attention to detail, and the medieval feels take me right back to the streets of Rome. This one is a must-try for all the history fanatics!
This dystopian cyberpunk build is amazingly detailed. Built by @insomniabuilds, this chaotic little world features everything – from dilapidated homes to eccentric humans of the future! Could this be a possible future for all of us?
A detailed mini kingdom fit for LEGO royalty! An impressive castle with majestic turrets is surrounded by a little water body, with a ship in its harbor. Built by @zilmrud, the royal kingdom features little palm trees and a cascading waterfall as well!
We’re taking a trip to Medieval times with The Blacksmith! It features a well-stocked workshop filled with tools, coals, and armor, with a detailed landscape. In fact, the coals even glow!
This one is for all the Harry Potter buffs! This amazingly lifelike Hogwarts build features stairs that move, and real figures as the paintings! How cool is this one?
The iconic Daily Bugle office has come to LEGO life! From a newsstand to an all-star cast of Marvel’s most celebrated heroes and villains, the build is detailed, animated, and super fun.
