If you’ve read books like Wikinomics and The Starfish and the Spider, you know that Lego has done much over the past few years to encourage their building community. One Lego artist has decided to pay tribute to the House that Ruth Built by recreating it with plastic bricks. Sean Kenney details the experience at his Lego artist website.
The model is five feet by five feet, rendering it at a scale of 1:150. With the help of a Manhattan gradeschooler, Kenney has snapped 45,000 bricks in place. The model should be completed within the next few months. They’ve been working on it since February 2006.
Once again, you can check out Sean Kenney’s Lego artist website to check out even more photos, plus check out the other things he’s building. I was a huge Lego fan as a kid, so looking through his portfolio was rather neat.
Thanks to Swarna for sending this in.
