This month, Science World is showcasing some of the world’s tallest buildings through LEGO replicas.
Starting January 24, Towers of Tomorrow exhibits 20 buildings, ranging from Canadian and Australian landmarks to those in United Arab Emirates.

These buildings are not just loose interpretations of each site, however. They are built on a scale of 1:200 and each one is done with architectural detail in mind.
Australia’s Ryan McNaught created the master works, as he is one of 14 certified LEGO professionals from around the world.
“Creating two to four-metre high versions of these iconic buildings has been an incredible challenge, pushing the almost limitless possibilities of LEGO,” he said.
So, some of the buildings you’ll see on display include:
- Toronto’s CN Tower
- New York’s Central Park Towers
- Empire State Building
- Chrysler Building
- Shanghai Tower
For this exhibit, McNaught used close to 600,000 lego bricks and it took nearly six months of construction.
The exhibit is running until September 7, 2020 with ticket prices varying.
