Professional Lego artist, Warren Elsmore has teamed up with London venue the ArcelorMittal Orbit to host the Bricks in the Sky exhibition from Saturday (2 April) until 10 April.

The building will house some of the world’s renowned landmarks, all of which will be made of Lego bricks. These will include Paris’ Eiffel Tower, The Empire State Building in New York, and the Auckland Skytower in New Zealand.

Attendees will also have the chance to watch on as Elsmore uses the coloured bricks to construct London’s skyline live in front of them.

Elsmore will be using the ArcelorMittal Orbit’s highest viewing gallery, which is situated 80 metres above London, as inspiration for the build.

Lego bricks will be scattered around the space, offering visitors the chance to build their own creations, with the best pieces to be included in Elsmore's final construction. 

The venue is also hosting an adults-only Bricks in the Sky event on 8 April, where ticketholders will be able to peruse the exhibition from 6pm onwards.

In other Lego news, a giant Avengers statue made of more than one million Lego bricks is currently in situ at The Toy Store on Oxford Street.
