LEGO Foundation helped to organise the UN Global Compact Leaders Summit on “Architects of a Better World,” where a number of global CEOs carried out series of exercises with creativity kits of LEGO bricks. They built their vision of a stronger future for education, human rights and the environment. Our community member Jacquie Lloyd helped to make this wonderful event alive – we are looking forward to reading her post about this exciting summit.
At the event Secretary-General of the UN Ban Ki-moon finalized the UN model built with LEGO bricks with the Chairman of the LEGO Foundation, Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, and LEGO Foundation CEO, Dr. Randa Grob-Zakhary. The model displayed at the UN scales to 165cm high x 240cm wide x 168cm deep providing an authentic representation of the actual UN Headquarters. The model used a total of 90,300 LEGO bricks.
If you are interested to do the same then you may use a smaller scale LEGO Architecture United Nations Headquarters model made of 597 bricks (25.9×11.2×11.2 cm, designed by Adam Reed Tucker). :)
