Museum makes 204-square foot Lego model of Colorado campus
Colorado's campus is one of the most gorgeous in the country, with its red-roofed buildings nestled beneath the Flatirons making for a magnificent sight.
To capture that beauty, the university's CU Heritage Center built a 12-foot-by-17-foot model of the campus made from Legos for an exhibit set to open on Dec. 6.
According to ABC-7, the idea for the exhibit was inspired by a similar Lego replica that the History Colorado Center in Denver constructed a couple of years ago. That model was dedicated to the entire state of Colorado and comprised an area of 700 feet.
The Boulder model isn't that enormous, but 204 square feet isn't too shabby. Whoever built that thing is probably still icing down their fingers after having to manipulate all those tiny plastic bricks.
