Taking pride of place at ToyCon 2018 this weekend will be a scale replica of the Bangladesh Jatiya Sangsad.
In an interview with the Dhaka Tribune’s Rosemary Zenith, LEGO enthusiast and Gemcon Group Director Juditha Ohlmacher discusses her reasons and plans for a diorama of the parliament building
While the original building was built over a period of 20 years from reinforced concrete, the model on display at the Midas Center in Dhanmondi took a fraction of the time and was made entirely from LEGO bricks.
The artist responsible, Juditha Ohlmacher, would love to see her design incorporated into the LEGO Architecture product range designed by ‘Architectural Artist’ Adam Reed Tucker and first released in 2008.
“We see LEGO models of architectural landmarks from around the world, like the New York skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and the Eiffel Tower,” Juditha told the Dhaka Tribune.
“Unfortunately, although Bangladesh has one of the greatest architectural designs, we didn’t have any LEGO representation of it yet and that is what inspired me to build this model.”
