The City of Odan

By Norman Chan

A monumental LEGO creation using 200,000 bricks.

Looking at Mike Doyle's City of Odan, I strain to grasp that this isn't a computer generated image or Photoshop painting, but actually a physical structure constructed with 200,000 LEGO bricks. Doyle says he spent north of 600 hours over eight months building this cityscape, which measures five feet tall and six feet wide. What's more impressive is the narrative fiction associated with the piece, which Doyle is raising money to extend on Kickstarter. Rewards include downloadable instructions, photo prints, and DIY building kits for parts of Odan. Brothers Brick also has an interview with Doyle about the aesthetic style of his work and and story that accompanies it.
