Teenager builds LEGO recreation of local library

A teenager has recreated his local public library using almost 18,000 LEGO bricks.

Beckett Mundell-Wood has been occupying himself during lockdown by building his local library using LEGO bricks. He used 17,883 LEGO elements to build Bangor Public Library, Maine, USA, accurately recreating the building’s key details.

The 1:48 scale model measures 153.6 x 64.0 x 44.5 centimetres, News Center Maine reports.

”We are blown away by this incredible LEGO version of the library done by Beckett Mundell-Wood who will be a 10th grader in the fall,” the library said on Facebook. “We can’t wait till we have it in the building (very meta). Thank you, Beckett for your fantastic creation!!”

Beckett was supported by the City of Bangor’s Commission on Cultural Development, Scott Simons Architects and Jeff Kirlin, in honour of Jim and Celia Kirlin, in making the incredible build happen.
