During the periods of lockdown and everything being closed, LEGO builder John Davisson decided to get busy with the bricks. After building his own house, he put together a model of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, located in Washington DC, USA, Aleteia reports.
“I’ve always thought it was a really remarkable building. When you come over the horizon of a hill in D.C., you see the basilica. Especially at night, it’s a really cool sight,” Davisson says.
He spent a month designing digitally in Stud.io, before ordering the pieces. It then took around two weeks to put together 8,100 pieces based on his digital designs. The model’s scale is 1:250.
