5,000 Kids with 1.8 Million LEGO Blocks "Build Up Japan"

Ivory colored map of archipelago's future commemorates 50 years of LEGO in Japan

LEGO recently sponsored a project called Build Up Japan to celebrate the 50th anniversary of LEGO's presence in the region. Using 1.8 million blocks, 5,000 children built a map of their vision of the archipelago's future. 

 

Construction was done in six different workshop located across the country between March and April before the 82-foot map was assembled in Tokyo. It then became part of the Piece of Peace exhibition that showcases LEGO models of World Heritage Sites.
