Burj Khalifa joins Lego league
A Lego model of Burj Khalifa was unveiled on Wednesday and is up for sale exclusively at the ‘AT The Top’ store in the world’s tallest building.
The 2.7 metre model is part of the prestigious Lego Architecture Series and would be on display at the Star Atrium in The ubai Mall until May 29, 2011. A global launch of the model is planned for later.
Built using 141,971 special unglued Lego bricks and designed by Adam Reed Tucker, a renowned architect and one of the 13 Lego-certified professionals, the Lego Architecture Series of Burj Khalifa celebrates the extraordinary union of art, engineering, and meticulous craftsmanship that defines the world’s tallest building.
The Burj Khalifa Lego Architecture Series package consists of Lego bricks, building instructions, and a content-rich booklet of facts and history of the tower.
Children from across Dubai are being invited to participate in “create your own” Burj Khalifa model using the Lego bricks. The models will be judged after the five-day activity, with the winning model to be displayed near the Lego® Architecture Series model.
Visitors to the play area will also stand a chance to enter a raffle draw and win the Burj Khalifa Lego model or tickets to At the Top, Burj Khalifa.
