Titans of Lego Architecture - Kennedy Space Center vs Allianz Arena

Who says bigger isn’t better?  At least in Legoland, that seems to be the truth.  With a little ingenuity and a LOT of patience and a ton of Legos, you too can have a Saturn 1B rocket (along with the space shuttle) and a German arena packed with 30,000 screaming fans… ok ok, maybe not screaming, they are just inanimate figs.  The NASA Space Center and the Alliance Arena are now the eptiome of the Lego superstucture.

On the big side, you have the Kennedy Space Center.  At 1,506 square feet, it took 2,500 hours to build. It includes a 6.13ft-tall Space Shuttle on the launch pad, the space center with a 9ft-long Saturn 1B rocket, and the Vehicle Assembly Building—8ft long x 6ft high x 5ft wide—made out of 50,000 Lego bricks.

On the bigger side, you have the Allianz Arena.  This model was built following the original plans from Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron, using 4,209 hours of work and over a million pieces. It can glow red, blue, and white using interior LEDs, achieving the same lighting effects of the original stadium thanks to a special translucent brick specifically manufactured for the project.

While these behomoths may not exactly fit on your coffee table, or even in the back yard, they are super cool and show just how creative you can be with Legos and some imagination.  What have been your biggest Lego accomplishments?
