That's incredible! Top quality stuff, looks really strong too!
I always build Lego towers, but I can never get use to building with Lego Technic without instructions for some reason

@Ultros can't leave me my opinion huh? what are you? some grade school kid? in MY opinion it is too high wether you like it or not. if you don't think so then it's nice and okay but there is no need to make fun of people with other opinions! just say that your opinion is different and why and leave the rest at home

..... And Bloomberg is reporting that LEGO has shown strong first and second quarter earnings. It might not be a general a general trend but quite possibly down to one man in Wellington, the network reports....

Just amazing MattTheTubaGuy!

Architects are loosing their spines. Is the only way to build the worlds tallest is to build a stretched out pyramid? I understand its easier to build taller and involves less engineering but come on. Lets see some balls in a design.

Not these kind of towers that are made to express "power" and ego. Don't blame designers, we always want to do the best and most awesome stuff, but it's the clients that don't pay or put too many constraints (oh ok, and there's also those few architects that are lazy and just want to poop out every project to get their check).

If you're legitimately not just trying to troll then my apologies for my rudeness, we get too many people on here who can't seem to put aside politics and personal feelings when posting in what is a construction thread. Happened quite a bit back in the Burj Khalifa construction thread too.

Very awesome. I used to build Lego towers as well back in the day but nothing quite like that!

we at ssc cheer the tall buildings but I wonder how tall is too tall for the beauty and livablity of a building? or only sky is the limit?


humans getting taller too but i think 2 m is enough so i guess 2 km should be limit for buildings
