Lego bridge by Megx
Do you remember what you used to build with your lego bricks as a child? Most likely, you'd be making something look like an object in real life - a house, skyscraper, perhaps even a whole town. Well how about making a real life object look like lego?
This lego bridge was created by artist, Megx, in his hometown of Wuppertal in Germany.
Making a real life bridge look like lego
Megx, spent 4 weeks turning a bit of disused railway line into this colourful giant lego bridge. Built using coloured panels, it might not actually be made out of lego bricks but it looks pretty close! Located just 30 minutes drive away from Dusseldorf, why not include it in your trip and head over in your Germany car hire? The street beneath it only allows for pedestrian or bicycle access so you'll need to park up nearby. And if you do pay Wuppertal a visit, you can also take a ride on the city's suspended monorail.
In Chicago? Beware the 'Go to jail' card
As seen from the Millenium Park
Chicago is a spectacular city to explore - on foot, by boat (a river tour of Chicago's architecture is a must!) and you can get even further in a Chicago car hire.
And over in the windy city in the USA, the famous board game, Monopoly, comes to the streets of Chicago.
Bored on the streets of Chicago
Trendy neighbourhood, Logan Square, is now home to a bit of street art from artist, Bored. Giant piles of Chance cards include one telling you to 'Go to jail for public douchebaggery' and this Chance card below which directs you to a church nearby…
Willing to take a chance?
In a response to Art and Design blog, This is Colossal, Bored said “the goal of this entire project has been to present something different than a stencil painted on the ground or a poster pasted to a wall. Something 3-dimensional that can be picked up, beaten down, kicked, yanked, grabbed, and broken. And if someone ever put forth the effort to remove it, like a weed it will always grow back. And if left alone it will evolve into something different.”
I love it!
