This weeks blog focuses on just a few of the amazing architectural beauties located around the world. These amazing creations have stood as engineering marvels in both the real world and now the world of toy bricks.
The Atomium located in Brussels, Belgium
This building was built for the 1958 world fair. Posing as an architectural wonder then and now, it now serves as a museum for the world.
Egypt has attracted tourists for centuries from all around the world. Although a dry and colorless desert, this place is home to some of the most stunning engineered architecture in history. To this day there are still many unknown mysteries about things like the Sphinx and Great Pyramids of Giza.
Stonehenge of Wiltshire, England
Originally erected somewhere around 2,000 - 3,000 BC this wonder of the world is filled with mystery. Still to this day there are only theories on its original use, however its massive stones shaping a ring is still amazing to behold.
US Capital Building
Although the building itself isn't particularly outstanding by government building standards, the brick replica certainly is. This model is part of a million plus brick display that was featured in a brick roadshow in 2015.
Statue Of Liberty
Standing as a beacon of freedom for the US this statue was designed by French sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi and built by Gustave Eiffel. This particular brick replica was also featured in the same roadshow as the US Capital Building.
Like the pyramids of Egypt these structures were engineered long before technology like motor powered excavators and cranes were even thought of. Ancient Aztec Pyramids are well known for there step features all the way up each side, and often have a temple of sorts standing at its peak.
