Matija Grguric takes us sightseeing to the other corner of the world… Well, depending on where your current location is anyway.
The torii - obviously, at low tide.
The dramatic gate is one of Japan’s big tourist attractions – which however was pretty much all I’d known about it up until 2 days ago. Matija’s recreation of it in bricks has spurred my interest and the beautiful photographs of his MOC leave me wanting to experience that quiescence myself.
“Insieme” was a very nice song by Toto Cutugno from almost two decades ago which really captured the spirit of those times when Europe was coming together. Now, a team of builders inspired and led by German AFOLs Bruno Kurth, Tanja Kusserow-Kurth, Tobias Reichling and Vanessa Graf has come up with something equally fascinating: a “Euromap” depicting landmarks from all over the continent.
So, which ones are your favourite EU landmarks then?
You can head over to Eurobricks to comment on this marvellous cooperation or visit Tobias Reichling‘s website to see more pics of the separate landmarks.
The Széchenyi lánchíd or Széchenyi Chain Bridge opened in 1849 and was designed by the English Engineer William Teirney Clark. The bridge is a larger version of the Marlow Bridge in Marlow, England and is named after it’s financier, Count István Széchenyi. The bridge was built to connect the eastern and western sides of Budapest, the capital city of Hungary and was the first permanent bridge in Budapest.
Brickshelf member, Multipla, brings us this impeccable Lego model of the Széchenyi lánchíd.
