The Colosseum beats out the Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon for the crown — or laurel wreath.
It turns out I am definitely not the first one to approach a project like this. As I mentioned before, Dirk built a world map, as well as a globe. Dan Harris built a map of Scotland and just a few days back, somebody in NZ finished a map of Westeros.
It looks like I found a much simpler way to create a map like this than Dirk, while at the same time probably spending as much time as he did anyway. There is an R package (of course there is) which converts an image into a mosaic of LEGO bricks. With a bit of scripting the whole process could – in theory – be automated. However even if it was automated, there is still the problem of brick prices and availability, which means you might save time if you do several different maps but pay a premium for bricks.

In March 2020 during one of his daily press conferences, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had a message for Canadian children about how they can do their part in the fight against COVID-19. It’s a powerful statement, one that deserves a version all kids will want to watch.
Tyler Walsh discusses the process further in an interview with CBC.
We put together a 30 Days of LEGO Play calendar. It’s a great way to really challenge kids (or yourself) to create something new with their LEGO bricks!

After walking through a recreation of Melbourne, the space opens up to a range of ‘stations’ developed around different themes. There are also a couple of rides, a ‘4D’ cinema playing four different Lego shorts on repeat and an adventure playground. In some respects the space captures the ethos of play-based learning.
Making the LEGO piano playable was my main focus when I designed this model, and at the same time, the most challenging part of the build. Finishing the model and seeing it work smoothly brought me great satisfaction. I spent a long time just siting there playing with the LEGO piano keys, imaging the sounds of a real piano. This is a great example of the creativity and diversity of LEGO bricks.
The Danish toymaker has relied on oil-based plastics for over 50 years. It wants to give them up by 2030. Finding alternatives is a vast project.
