August 7, 2022

2022 marks the 25th anniversary of the current Art Center building, designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill in Chicago. To celebrate the occasion, an architectural exhibition seems appropriate.

Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO® Bricks partners some of the world’s most dazzling and innovative skyscrapers with the world’s most popular building brick. The exhibit features 20 astonishing skyscrapers from North America, Asia, and Australia constructed in breathtaking architectural detail by Ryan McNaught, one of only twelve LEGO® certified professionals in the world. McNaught and his team of builders have used more than half a million LEGO® bricks and devoted over 2,000 hours to build the structures featured in the exhibition.

Among the buildings represented is Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the current tallest building in the world, also designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Additional towers include: Chrysler Building • Empire State Building • Infinity Tower • Marina Bay Sands • Shanghai Tower • Taipei 101 • Tokyo Skytree • Willis (Sears) Tower • Wilshire Grand Centre.

Visitors will be inspired to create their own ‘towers of tomorrow’ with more than 200,000 loose LEGO® bricks available in hands-on construction areas. Visitors can add their creations to a steadily rising futuristic LEGO® metropolis inside the exhibition.

Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO® Bricks is a traveling exhibition from Sydney Living Museums and toured internationally by Flying Fish.

The exhibition is made possible locally through funding from the Blockbuster IV Partners.

The Towers of Tomorrow Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, May 7, from 5:00 – 7:00pm.
