Brick by Brick features a spectacular collection of more than a dozen LEGO-built structures of engineering marvels, constructed by LEGO Certified Professional and Chicago native, Adam Reed Tucker. These model structures include:

  • • A 60-foot-long Golden Gate Bridge
  • • The Hoover Dam, made with 42,000 bricks
  • • The American Eagle roller coaster from Six Flags Great America, and it even operates!
  • • The Roman Colosseum, whose oval structure was designed more than a dozen times to get it right
  • • A 9-feet-tall Burj Khalifa

Guests will also experience hands-on building challenges that reinforce key principles of engineering, construction and architecture—and encourage creativity. Get inspired by the architectural feats in the exhibit, and go head to head in a design challenge or build a structure that can withstand wind and turbulence!
