Emaar Properties has teamed up with the LEGO Group to unveil the Architecture Series model of Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building.
To mark the occasion, a 2.7-metre model of Burj Khalifa, constructed using 141,971 unglued LEGO bricks, will be displayed at the Star Atrium in The Dubai Mall until May 29, 2011.
The Burj Khalifa model has been designed by architect Adam Reed Tucker, one of the 13 LEGO-certified professionals. It is available at the At the Top, Burj Khalifa retail store until its pending global launch.
Tucker said: “As an architectural artist my desire is to capture the essence of a particular architectural landmark in its pure sculptural form. I don’t view my models as literal replicas, but rather my own artistic interpretations through the use of LEGO bricks as a medium.”
